Fiberglass hood install

I bought a glass hood for my '06, I tried it on the car but the one back corner stuck up about an inch from the fender. I didn't try and bolt it down. I assume it will pull down safely when I bolt it up, but I don't want to break it or crack the paint when I put it on. This is the first aftermarket hood I've used so I don't know if it's normal or what. Thanks!

It should fit like the stocker. If not I would send it back. If you break it when installing you may not get your money back. If you think it's not right, take pictures and send them to the manufacture for their advice before going any further.

I actually got it from a swap meet at the beginning of the year, so I guess I'd better see about making it fit before I go any further with it.
