Hood wont latch

So for a good while now my hood has been unable to latch. I think the part on the underside of the hood is worn out so it doesn't push the latch down enough to completely close. Anyone have any idea how to fix this? It's gotten to the point where I don't feel safe driving it faster than like 30

I had an issue when I switched to my carbon fiber cowl hood. I grabbed a metal file and filed the latch attachment point (on the body, not the hood) upward about 1/4". I pushed the latch mechanism upward and bolted it down.
Everything fits snugly now.
