Doug, I think there is typically a irregular edge of the fiberglass to the metal latch and that over time there can be some separation and a visible gap. If this is the case you may want to remove any paint from the area, both materials fiberglass and metal, rough the metal a bit and apply some new (additional) fiberglass and resin to the area. Don't add too much.
Also, and you may already know, the under side of the hood would not be body color but would have body color overspray around the perimeter and through the scoop inlet openings. You may want to paint the underside a dark (Hot Rod) gray primer.
Thanks JD. Great photo. Between this and the one's from Brian I think I have a good direction now.
As to my call-out above, I thought they were supposed to be black on the underside? Or is the gray so dark it looks black most of the time, like a charcoal?
