Just got myself a Focus 1.8 Ghia 02 plate, really pleased with it. Looks like at some point its had the bonnet off and when re-fitted its not been adjusted flush with the wings. Its only a few millimeters higher than the wings but i would like to put it right. Does anyone know if it can be adjusted and how?

the problem is more at the windscreen end, not sure if there is any adjustment that can be made with the hinges? Its had a repair at some point and the bonnet has been off.
any help much would be greatly recieved.

theres a small amount of adjustment on the hinge end youll need to loosen the bolts and move it a little then retighten etc sounds like its been a biut of a bad job most likely accident damaged
