My Blitz front end is annoying me! Anyone with a Blitz, HELP!

I have a Blitz front end/bumper. But there is a big 6-8 in gap between the ends of the bumper where the plastic wheel well doesn't cover. It's not so noticeable during the day, but at night the fog lights really brighten that area up and it looks like shit. Here is a pic I took of the situation. http://www.bigredrawkitriot.com/blitz.jpg

Does anyone else have this problem? Or know of a fix? Any help at all (besides turning off the fog lights) would be greatly appreciated.

Take a piece of twine and tie the plastics to the bumper - make a hole in the bumper and plastics so the twine can weave through it similar to how you would lace your shoe. Afterwards, clean it up so the twine is does not show. You may even want to think about using a black rubber gasket on the plastics side so it doesn't tear.

Here are more pictures of that...

If you're talking about extending the bottom of your stock wheel well plastics (if you have already cut them "straight") to meet the bottom of your blitz bumper, you could take a dark colored sign (or paint a for-sale sign) and bolt (or attach it with glue) it to your stock plastics (it will look "ghetto") similar to whats described here...

But I believe that tying them with twine may be the best solution. Also, check out this post...
