Like most cars the hood is adjustable, The 4 bolts that hold the hood to the hinge can be loosened & the hood adjusted. The adjustment will require at least 2 people, one to move the hood & another to tighten the bolts. Before you start make sure to mark the position that the hood is in, so that if you have trouble w/adjustment then you can go back to where you started. REMEMBER BE CAREFUL!!, a new SL hood can cost $1250.
