Where you have run out of adjustment consider elongating the holes

Drop the front of the hinge.first make sure the stop is not what it holding it up. As you drop the front of the hinge it lets it close in the rear But moves that side forward so you come down with the hinge then back with the hood. The quick way is to shim the front bolt on the hood. But with 3 on the caddy you have to taper them. But that is normally reserved for last resort.
