Finally got my RK Sport hood to lay flat!

After fiddling with it for quite some time I finally got my RK Sport hood to lay flat. As most know there is often an issue witht he passenger side front corner not laying flat, I could get it to go down even by adjusting the latch but then the hood point would be to low, even after adjusting the hex screw and rubber stopper.

So last night I tried tilting the latch so that the driver side was about 1/2 inch higher than the passenger side and the hood lays flat now! It took a lot of opening and closing the hood and minor tweaks, but its almost perfect not. Just wanted to share if anyone has an RK sport hood with that issue. I'll post pics when I am not at work.

May problem is that my hood will late flat by the fenders but when it comes down to the nose, it's real low. Think the latch would fix this without messing up further back giving that you lower the rubber stops?

Probably, I had that problem too where the front was a little to low, I have the two wide stops all the way down an the inner I tweaked a little to get it right after adjusting the latch.
