How do you adjust the hood?

I thought I could adjust the hood by turning down the two "stopper" things under the hood but I've turned both of them all the way down and this is the end result. Are there other things I need to adjust? Any tips?

-.-

Sorry but I still can’t get over this. I just went through the pic thread of Alpine White’s and theirs definitely don’t have a gap as big as mine. Are there any differences in kidney grills with the LCI’s? Like maybe I have the wrong grills? Anybody else have any suggestions?

Okay, so i went out to take a look again and noticed that when the hood is closed, the 3 black stoppers (circled in blue, top pic) are not sitting flush with the corresponding spaces near the grills (circled in blue, bottom pic). Instead, the black stoppers are touching the spots marked off in red. I'm assuming they're supposed to be resting in the position thats marked off in green.

Can anyone confirm this on their own car?

i think bumper needs to be adjust it, check the headlights underneath.
i think the "thin tab raised" on bumper needs to go under the headlight.

Thanks nyalpine90 you were right. The bumper does need to be adjusted. I had someone pull up on the middle air dam part of the bumper and all of a sudden everything looked perfect and how it should.

Can anyone give me tips on removing the bumper? I saw the fender rivets on the side, the many little (8mm maybe?) bolts underneath, and even messed with the couple screws that hide beneath the weather moulding of the top side of the bumper. I saw a post where a member listed all the bolts/screws that were to be removed but I can't seem to find it. I just want to be prepared as possible since I've never removed a bumpe before.
