ooo i ran thru the same problem....all the cf hoods they have are like this....the hood will not close unless u make the hole on the latch bigger....i personally went to VIS to scream about this problem and after about 3 hours of waiting and 5 people helping they were able to come to the conclusion that the latch needed to have a bigger hole since the latch on the hood isnt long enough to hook on and close all the way....trust me guys its not the problem from the hood its a problem with all the latches on their hoods....so just go ahead and get a dremel and make the hole bigger on ur car latch and it will work out just fine....saves alot of trouble from shippin the hood and complaining about everything....good luck!
