I got mine just about a year ago and it had some issues. No matter what my bodyshop did they couldn't get it to sit flat. You can see in the picture the rise on the passenger side.

I have the same lift, but it's ~1/32nd of an inch. No one ever notices, and the hood fits perfectly with no fabricating necessary. If you click the picture in my sig you'll see a bunch of pics of the hood in the first post.

mine is the same on the front passenger corner. This is obviously a mold issue. I have seen two other locals and we are all exactly the same. I have done a couple of things to minimize the visual distortion related to the lifted corner.

Can any of you spot the lift? This is a pretty close up picture too.

Honestly yes... it's passenger side as well. You can see from difference in the lines at the hood and fascia. Passenger side looks like a gap, driver side looks flush to the edges. But, it's not something that I would noticed if just walking by...
