Default Hood out of alignment

I bought the MRT hood struts. I watched the video from the Mustang parts store that I bought from put them in and slowly closed the hood. It was out of alignment. The hood is crooked to where the drivers side front is closer to the fender and passenger side back is closer to the fender on that side. I took off the struts and the hood is still out of alignment. What can I do to straighten out the hood? Thanks in advance, Ed.

sounds like you had the struts installed improperly and you bent your hod/hinge. im not an expert at body work, so i would ask a body shop for advice
