Anyone have to loosen or adjust reinforcement bar to get the 1m bumper to lineup with the fenders?

I have a pre LCI doing an LCI front conversion using ltmw 1m front bumper.

It fits properly where the grill is ( kidney grills ). But when I try to attach it to the fenders they don't reach. It seems as if it's not wide enough to reach on both sides.

I called and spoke to long tran. He says to loosen up the reinforcement bar move it up or down. Just play with it to get the bumper to go on. Just wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with this front bumper? My impression with this bumper purchase was that it was supposed to fit like a glove 100% fitment as it is the top half of the bumper for my vehicle and the bottom half of the 1m.

Please if anyone has any info on this pm me post. Thanks

Ps. The Autobody I have the car and bumper has had it almost a month and they can't figure it out. They say it's not going to fit.

This is kind of what you get with aftermarket bumpers man. They advertise 100% perfect fitment because it sells, as realistically "75% fitment" doesn't sound too good. If a bodyshop can't manage it I'd ask for a refund, personally.

Thanks for the advice. Turns out the help I needed was found in a different forum site. The crash bar needs to be trimmed 6-inches on each side. Then the LTMW 1m bumper fits perfect.
