Hood Screw Mount

Hood Screw Mount
Can anyone help me with my new carbon fiber Hood?

my question is the hood seems to fit perfectly, the holes for flush mounting perfectly and screwed in snugly, when I close the hood I can get the closing bell but it will not go down all the way, is stuck in the position that is when you pull the hood release inside the car that attaches to the hook, but he gets up so you can pull the tab and disconnect the bell, I tried pushing down on it, but just will not go down all the way, if it were not for the pins that the church bell not be completely closed. Thanks in advance for any help at all! This is for a 06 honda civic coupe OEM VIS Carbon Fiber Hood. Thanks

It is not uncommon for aftermarket hoods, their dimensions often deviate from OEM. Like Greg said,,, get the bumper corner stops adapted to your height first. To do that, remove the hood latch,,, and loosen / or closing down in the body so it does not interfere with his campaign to go all the way down. (Remove part of the hood, so you no longer get stuck its a hassle .. great) Ok, once you have the corners set the right height, aligned with the defenses and all …. see in the center of the hood and see if the difference is about right. SOMETIMES,,, is as an ARC from left to right, and therefore the bell a little high in the middle. However, it should be about right at the corners amend. Once the corners are fixed well,,, you then have to adjust the latch. If you stretch a rope from the top of each damper on the corner, from left to right …… That is the same plane that the pills in the chapel itself, which stops the bumper mate with the hood. That makes sense? If a string stretched across the car, and one by the Bell, when he closed the chapel of the 2 wires touch each other only. It's the same line through the corner points of the bumper,,, either the car or at the chapel. Ok,,,, Put your hood latch on the back of the hood. Using the chain is stretched by the chapel for a reference point. The distance from the point of attachment in the chapel, the bell Line ——————— ——– String________________ Latch String .. …….____……………… Say the distance between Point Quit STRING and is 2 "under the hood bumper-contact point is the chain Then, in the car do the same. See how the ACTION CAMPAIGN example above, the bolt is under the line of strings? In the following example,, UP Latch is off line string ……..______………. Car String_____________ —- ———————– This would make the foot-shaped hood is necessary to adjust HIGH bolt Chapel same distance measurement , measured from the chain. So that if closure Hood is 2 "under the table CAR insurance should be the same 2" under the table. Latch String_______________ …….._____………… —————– ——- Car a bit strange to think of the string is in the SAME PLACE in both the car and the hood. But when the hood is closed, it is the same plane, the same level. So whatever the Hood latch position is in relation to the chain,,,, Top, Bottom whatever,,,, and the actual measurement of the chain …. the closure of the car has to be to the same extent in the chain. That you get very close as a starting point to begin adjusting the same. Usually need a little bell narrower than the measured point. 1 / 8 "to 3 / 16 narrower all. A 1 / 4" "Tight" is very tight. The exception is if the hood ARC is going to have I mentioned earlier. Youll have to adjust tighter pull down and hold the Hood in the correct position, and slam shut to get outa hell .. or push it down. that's really not good or bad, but it happens. If it's an extreme amount,,, could be a "Bad Hood" You can play the corner Bumper height a bit to accommodate a small amount of hood maladjustment, and still look good. And split the difference between the height of the corner and the height of the center,,, and often find something acceptable. But anything beyond a bit "off",,, starts to look bad. I doubt that the bell is in fact the High in the center. It's probly just a difference between the dimension of the production of 2 bells that require the closure to accommodate much lower than at first. Also, when you is measuring the height of coupling, make sure to measure in the centerline of LOCKED actual position on the grip surfaces. If you're sure have every right and still can not get the hood down, call the mfgr, or where ya got the hood. There really is not usually with no real tricks …… But on things after sales, sometimes there is some trick. Things like, "Oh Yeah,,, closing the factory is too high,,, You I have drill holes for bolts X-bolt size so you can push the lever below … "Or who knows what. Bolt-On parts are famous for not bolted on,,, lol:) Good luck with it, hope and put it up nice
