Icon8 Getting a fiberglass kit to line up

i just bought this fiberglass kit but since it is not from an original mold the bumpers do not line up and are either not sitting right or popping out and leaving gaps. I took a nice chunk out of the front one so decided to scrap it and get a stock one, but i would like to keep the back. Can anyone help me out on how to get it to sit right? Also i need a set of grilles, but can not find them anywhere. does anyone have good websites?
thank you

goodluck.

body kits, especially cheap fiberglass ones, are notorious for horrible fitment, huge gaps, nothing lining up correctly, and being extremely brittle/delicate. just ask LittleFoot, she's been through it all with her fiberglass body kit

Usually its a job left for a body shop, and they charge an arm and a leg to get it to look decent, at best.
