My bonnet is more on the driver's side now. so at the passenger side there is this huge gap which looks awful. Does any1 know how i can adjust the bonnet so it seats in the center?

Just loosen the bolts on the bonnet side of the hinge slightly and move it, then do them back up tight.

Try tweeking it a modicum with a BFH.

Or just give it a sideways push whilst open to flex the hinges a fraction if there is not enough at the bolts to move it across

The bolts for the hinges can be undone and moved too. So move all 8 bolts
