Not a huge problem... The easiest way (without touching any body work) would be to fabricate some new bumper irons that mount between the wing and front apron. Just have to remove a small section of wing beading, and you're away.



BTW, looks real cool with the new wheels! Cool
You still gonna add red to the doors and quarter panels?

why dont you just cut some new slots ....if you're worried about the paint ....the rubber seals will hide any small 'accidents' ....after that its a touch up brush Smile............
