Lightbulb hood adjustment question.

I have had my carbon fiber hood for a while now, but the entire time I have had it it doesnt fit exactly perfectly. The entire hood needs to move over about 1/8th" to the passenger side. I have been messing with it but cant seem to figure out how to move it over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Just loosen the 4 bolts that hold it on and move it over a little... have someone hold it in place while you tighten them down.

Ive tried that, it seems that it is as far as it will go. Is there some way i can move the hinges over a bit?

You can tweak the hinges with your bare hands if you need to. Just take the hood off and push on the hinge. Just be aware that if you move the hinge too much the bolt holes won't line up anymore.
It could just be that your hood was poorly fabbed.
