Hey Josh, just looked at your blog. That is a well done site. Thanks for the link. You will get there. You showed a picture of the aftermarket rear valance not fitting quite right. I believe the lower edge (corner area) could be stretched gently which would let the panel settle in and close that gap. Do you know anyone who could help you with that? Maybe the instructor you were working with. The best of the replacement panels are what we call "near fit" panels. They are never completely correct. Hope I'm not getting to big for my britches but you obviously want this project to be the best it can be. Keep up the hard work.
