    Just wondering if anyone noticed the hood alignment on your Hellcat , I know that they are made out of aluminum , one side has a little more space than the other one,does anyone else have that problem ?

    yes I have a much bigger gap on the drivers side about quarter inch wide but on the pass side its nearly tight plus the hood sticks up over the fender a bit on the drivers side. Going to take back to the dealer to see if it can be realigned

    I had a similar issue. Dealer was able to make it less of a problem, but not perfect.

    Even on my Viper there were areas that weren't perfect. People used to tell me that Dodge is notorious for that

    Got my hood and my passenger side front quarter panel aligned this past weekend. Fit on these is certainly not perfect, but much better now.

    Take it to a quality body shop in your area, one that works on Porsche's, Mercedes, etc. and have the fix it all. Done. Dealership bodyshops aren't the best.
