69 lower front valance trim

Ok, I bought the 2 chrome trim pieces that go in the openings on the front lower valance. The trim has a lip on them like they are supposed to wrap around the opening. But with the stud placement, they sit back too far. The lip sits right on the top off the opening. Do I need to tweak the locations of the holes?

I looked on line and I can not find a clear enough picture to show me how others fit. Can anyone clear this up for me.

welcome to the repop world of something not fitting...

original valance trim fits original valances

original valance trim does not fit correctly on repop valances

repop trim doesnt fit on repop valances

same for

the turn signal/parking lights ....

just from the 6 or 7 I have dealt with in the last 20 years ...

It sets back in there a bit. Read through my restoration post for Voodoo II and you will see some pics.
