    I was reading this thread:

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/158228-couple-issues-my-new-truck.html

    and noticed i have creases on the rear of my scoop as well, I looked under the hood and found several brace points (connected with some sort of glue) were not connected and i could push up on the hood with my finger from the inside...

    Is this an issue the dealer will correct? Im really looking at those dents now..

    Why is the glue separated from the hood then?

    The expression " crease " makes it sound worse than it is , it is a deliniation of where the scoop meets the hood and can only be seen in certain light .

    It is normal and you probably haven't noticed it yet .
