Default Q: Saleen hood shims recommendation?

Does anybody know if it is a guarantee that you have to shim an oem saleen hood to get it to fit flush with the fender etc. I spoke to a saleen tech at saleen head quarter and he mentioned that all saleens from the lot when sold were shimmed right off the get go. Id like to hear this from the forum members to hear what you guys have to say. Also if anyone could kindly post a pic of these so called equipped shims on thier saleens i would appreciate it. I had the pleasure of looking at a gt that had a shimmed saleen oem hood so everyone has an idea on where to look. He had shims up and down the sides of the fenders. Basically this raises the fenders to give them a flusher transition to the height of the hood. I really need help guys. Thanks alot. Also where would i be able to buy these shims from? Sorry for the long post guys. Here is the pic.
