I also cut off that triangular piece of plastic near the base front of the ground effects using a Dremel and cut off wheel. I also had removed the end pieces of the impact absorption rubber that was interfering with the fitment of my front nose.
Because of a slight flaw in the fibreglass fabrication on the passenger side of the front nose I am going to have to do some filing and then re building up of the fibreglass to make that side fit better. I also accidentally punctured an air pocket in the top drivers side of the front nose, another slight flaw in the fabrication, good thing I discovered that before I got to the painting process. Billy from "Knight Designs" has mentioned a method of checking for air pockets that I think I will need to utilize just to make sure there are no more surprises.
