Looks good!.. Me and my friend just installed one on his camaro and we have a little problem with the hood not lining up right. the hood comes down further than the front fascia.. any ideas?

I would check to see if the plastic fasteners that attach the top of the facia to the frame are installed correctly. The Fascia is pretty flexible. So, there may be something stuck underneath it or the plastic fastners aren't installed right. Remember both pieces of the plastic fastener go on top of the fascia. Not one underneath and one above.

maybe that's it. if you can take a pic it might help.

sorry I forgot to post back but it turns out that the problem was the 2 torx screws on the plate by the hinge was in too tight and that pushes up the front fascia making it not line up properly .. I just wish I noticed that before taking off the whole front bumper again lol
