This is an aftermarket OER bumper cover, original GM hood. We've beat our brains out trying to make this gap "better". I don't think we can. The hood to bumper gap right in the center is about 1/8 inch...like it should be. The gap opens up to over 1/2 inch out at the right/left ends. If we move the hood forward to close the gaps on the ends, the center will hit the bumper cover. Should I just call it good and not worry about it? This is the ONLY gap on the entire car that isn't as perfect as you could ask for.
