    My 95 suffers from what I have researched the fairly common problem on Gen 1/2 of hood to fascia fitment. The gap at the side of the fascia (just in front of the wheel well) ) to the hood on the passenger side is larger than driver's side. I have forum researched countless old threads discussing all kinds of remedies. Most are so old that all of the pics are gone/not available. One post suggested loosening the fasteners in fascia to the wheel well and jacking under the inner fender. I loosened the fasteners but there was zero movement and not real excited about the jacking part. I tried making adjustments using the 2 front hood latches and even the rear adjustable hood containment catches. But nothing really changed.

    So does anyone have a remedy short of removing the front fascia and refitting ? Or if anyone knows of an experienced body person in metro Atlanta who could perform a proper fitment ?

    Thanks.

    Nothing really fits right on a G1.... My advise is to go easy on your modern expectations for early viper. These cars really were throwbacks, almost kit cars. Unless it's really bad, I'd leave it alone.
