Hood Adjustment

I recently noticed that the body gap along the back edge of my hood is wider on the driver side than on the passenger side. You can also notice it in the front corner of the hood as it juts out just a bit further than the side panel. Can this be adjusted somehow?

Are you referring to the two on the top of the hinge? I would imagine the hinge and hood were painted as an assembly and any change in alignment would reveal an unpainted spot on the hood.

Are you sure the hood is painted on the chassis?
