The car was in an accident a few months back, had the hood replaced and the front bumper resprayed. Looking over her today I noticed that the front is not lining up. Is this normal or is it not on right?

No, it's not normal. Did it change since the work was completed or did you approve it that way at the time?

did they take your front bumper off? IDK why it's designed that way, but it can still be securely attached to the car without being put back on perfectly flush. Check to see if it's not sticking out on one side too much.

I would say that your HOOD is not properly aligned. It needs to be shifted forward.
Any pictures of the back of the hood where it meets the fender?
Bumper fit looks good though


Sorry for the hand in the pic, didnt want my base sticker number getting out due to my job and security reasons

Looks perfect there. Weird. Did you ask them if the hood was OEM? It may not be. Also - have you checked behind the bumper to see if there are any shims or anything (up around the grill)? I can't really figure this out either

Don't get me wrong, it doesnt look BAD - but it does look odd.

Yeah just check the bumper up behind the grill. I would say that everything looks decent though. There won't be much you can do.
Worst case scenario, you could adjust the hood feet so the hood sits a litttttttle higher, which will make the transition look a little less obvious.

Re: FV-QR (idwurks)

Yeah it just started to sprinkle again outside, and I have no garage so it will have to wait.
It just looked a little off to me, and was starting to stress me out since I didn't get to pick her up from the shop, but now that people are saying it looks fine is a sigh of relief. Thanks for all the help.
