I had a new hood fitted a month ago and on Sunday put it up for the first time.
At first I was a little disappointed in how it fits. I'm not so much now, I think maybe its not as bad as I first though, but I was expecting perfection!
My first question is around the fit at the Windscreen Header. I seem to have a gap on the drivers side and a 'lump' on the passenger side:
Secondly, the fit to the drivers window seems reasonable, but on the passenger side, there seems to be a large gap between the hood rubber seal and the top of the glass.
Presumably this would need the window adjusting to tip 'in' at the top?
Another question, I'm not sure, but to my (inexperienced) eye, some of the seals like 'deformed' or squashed (couple of examples):
Should they look like this?
Finally, the hood is proper taught, which is good, but its taught with the hood adjusters at the front being at their shortest length. When the hood stretches, does this mean that I will have no adjustment to take the bagginess out of it?
I guess I don't know how well it should fit and I've not seen another one parked up to have a good look at since I've had it back from the trimmers so any thoughts would be welcome.
