So you bent it out of shape and wonder why it's not fitting right? Did I read that right?


Also depending on the brand also depends on how well it fits. Ask a body shop what brand they use that's not OEM? They will know which are good brands an which are bad.

No i didnt bend it out of shape. i rolled the fender u know so my wheels dont rub. Its not the fender that wasnt fitting right its the bumper which reminds me i need to put some heat on it and get it to fit right. I didnt do anything to the bumper to make it flared out. It came like that.

Take the bumper off and get a ratchet strap. Wrap it around the bumper to squeeze the outer part inwards a little. Leave it like that for a day. It should help shape it back into shape. It's the same principle I was talking about with the side moldings.

Oh ok. Its really only the drivers side. it just doesnt line up with the fender like its supposed to. and its only the last hole that wont line up. It does now since its ziptied but u can see a lil gap. Its fine though i just dont want the zip ties to break and my bumper comes off lol.
