Question about Cars & Trucks
I would take the hood off of the hinges, remove the front latch hardware, and position it over the engine and just see if it is possible to achieve a "good looking" fit with the fenders. That is, will the hood physically fit into the opening available without excessive gaps, etc. The hood or the car may have been previously damaged and repaired. If it fits, then you still have some work to do on the hardware attaching the hood. If it doesn't fit, you need a new hood or truck.

Hood latch on passenger side needs adjusting, Have someone put pressure on side of hood when
you are pushing the hood latch release.
This may help them when they are pulling up on the hood.

try pushing down on that side of the hood when you pull the lever (takes 2 people, or 1 with 4 9ft long arms). Keep holding the lever while you release the center latch and lift the hood. I can't promise it'll work, but it usually does. sometimes you have to play with it a while.

you need some wrenches and you should mark with crayon or chaulk the outline of the fender where it attaches to the frame of the car and if it is an after market fender it may not fit perfectly
