Yes, I have thought about that as well...
Remove the hood liner...

Wet those 2 corners with some water...
Place some weights on both places to push flat and wait for it to dry that way...
Go to the dealer and buy more of the plastic liner retainer pins, I'm sure some will break...

Also: It is about 1 1/2 inch recessed in that area, needing to replace the 1 inch seal with maybe a 2 - 2 1/2 inch seal???? ...

I'm just wondering if ALL the gen4's varrarams are having the same sealing issue with the stock hood???
