The gaps are about 5mm to the ruler so thats are all good. I'm aware about the general issues with the alignments, from previous posts and the years of looking at them.

I think the win bar needs squashing for a nontechnical solution, but as its painted thats not ideal, so I might give the mount a love tap, generally, all the gaps are in tolerance, and as I'm doing it thats acceptable, and better than the better fitting rust offerings.

Cheers lol. The other side has settled, just needed some gentle persuasion by hand to follow the profile of the door, but happy enough.

Default Bonnet Gap Now closed up.

Dear all another Newb question.

Since refitting my front arch trims, bolting it all together seem to have pulled the bumper up the bonnet.

Did I miss a trick, or do I need to now adjust the bonnet via the stops to align this.



It all fitted fine before, though on one side I do have a new liner.

It's the same on both sides.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

cheers

J.

I am not sure why bolting in your liners have moved things, but if you take them back out there is some adjustment at the top rear bumper mounting points. Certainly enough to even up the gap shown on your photo.
Have a careful look when removing liners to see what has happened, it could be that the fixing bolt on the points I mentioned are just not tightened down enough.
