If its just misaligned you can try to loosen the bolts to where they're snug then shove the hood over top the left/right with some elbow grease, tighten them back up. If you go too far then repeat the step.

Otherwise pics would help to see what's effed up.

Yeah you're never gonna get it perfecto being that neons didn't even come perfect from the factory. So with that being said any improvement would just be considered "better than stock" Very Happy

Neons, just like most Chryslers ,were half-assed from the factory body wise.(SORRY) Some looked ok others not. Example mine's passenger front door's bottom edge sticks out too far from the door sill. So considering neons were an inexpensive car for people to aford, body alignment was not a priortity. Anyway most cars made domesticly are never perfect. To get the hood straight you'll need to center the hood with the windshield , then set the fenders with the gaps even from front to back. Keep in mind nothing's perfect so don't kill yourself trying to.... Smile
