    Looks like the ps headlight door is misaligned too and thats exagerating it.

    Maybe put a block of wood under the middle and gently try to flex the front corners down.

    Apparently looked way worse than it was , Just put a nice little block of wood under the front there in the middle and pushed on it in short impacts with both hands and she looks straight now in the middle

    Haha! I was thinking the same thing when I saw the new pic! Nice! You're getting there! I actually did the wood block all down the sides at fenders on the Sunrise to match the curvature toward the front too.

    haha thanks guys... I just gave it the boots lol .. it was actually risky I got the block of wood under there and gave a few good impact heaves kinda like CPR... I have yet to line up grill again so we will see if it's still lined up . I did straighten the middle with the grille still installed but took it off for final tweaking of the left & right above headlights to avoid damaging it . I also adjusted hinges and those stops . I also have to remove the hood again to install engine
