Bonnet / Hood alignment

While working on my rat infested rover (See different thread). I removed the bonnet to better access the wiring loom. Now I'd like to fix another vexing problem.

My bonnet is rubbing the fenders at the back (closest to the hinges) while at the front there is a 1/2 inch gap between the fender and the bonnet. I've searched the forum and tried the fixes found there namely flipping over the black plastic hinge inserts. I've also adjusted the bonnet bumper stops that rest on the radiator surround.

Neither of these things worked. In the past I looked for an adjustment for the hinges behind the dash but as best as I can tell the hinges are riveted to the firewall.

Does anybody have a different solution?

Well mine s kinda the same, gap at the front and rubbing at the back, I've never tried to fix it though, just thought it was normal for a hand madeish type vehicle.
