bumper alignment

Here's another question... thanks to those that helped with the spoiler. Anyhow, as you can see in the pictures, once the bumper is bolted up the rubber top-piece compresses against the fenders. My 'dog-bone' rubber shims are in good shape, but has anyone else found that they need to shim the whole thing out a bit to get it to fit? I'm thinking I'll need to shim mine out about 3/16" at the top and a bit less at the bottom. Thanks - Will

I shimmed it... I think this is better than having the rubber bumper top rubbing paint off the fender. wd

No shim required. Everyone I have seen is like the top picture.
