I think they all have that problem. On mine, I spread the fenders out a little and glued the front end to it like it should be. Then added styrene strips to the sides of the hood to make it match the opening.

I fixed mine by cutting through the grill between the grill opening and the lights and glue the parts back together.

I found my Gremlin has a very badly-warped chassis plate. I haven't really played with it otherwise. I need to do that.

 

I'll be interested to see what you come up with with yours.
