Not only out of shape, ill fitting, but thinner than factory too! I replaced both fenders and the hood on my '71 Camaro when I rebuilt it, and I wish I had gone through the effort to fix the stock fenders, as they were such better quality.
I dented the hood the first time I closed the latch while fitting it! Pushed down on it and it pushed in. Had to get to the backside and lay a sheet of 18ga. behind the area and tack it in so I wouldn't dent it again after paint.
