I am finishing up my build of a Lonestar and noticed that you seem to have the same problem I am in that the hood assembly does not close properly leaving a big gap at the fender joint and also behind the air cleaners.  I have noticed this on other Lonestar builds that have been posted.  I certainly don't have the building skills you do and have pretty much given up on solving this, do you have any fix in mind?  The ultimate position of the cab is determined by details 168 & 169 and the fit/location of other relevant details contributing to the "stackup" through the location of the hood assembly is very good so I don't really know where the problem comes from.

i spent 3 days looking at it then decided they made the mounts to low and the fender to short. if you look on the moebius instructions even theirs dont sit right.
