Quite oftern bonnets are like this. The one piece setup means that adjustment can try your patience, but it is possible in most cases to get reasonable panel gaps. E-type bonnets are flip-up as well, and are supplied 2" overlength and cut to fit by the coachworker; what a nightmare that must be!

The gaps shouldn't exceed 1" anywhere around the back of the bonnet, but if you are concerned about accident damage, look at the front chassis rails for buckled and creased metal. See the picture for the area to look at. Also, although easily replaced, the front overriders may show scratches if the car has gone into the back of something.

Hope this helps, Russ
