try to trim your bumper support foam. I had to do that for mine.

Try not using the USDM bumper support

*edit for the children that ate paint chips*
... by that, I mean use the JDM bumper support in the place of the USDM one

Indeed, use the JDM support. The usdm would have to be cut down quite a bit to make it work. Not worth it in my opinion. Just track down a JDM support. Makes it go so smoothly. Swap is cake with the right parts.

JDM support ftw. If you search I am sure someone has covered it before though....and I did a write up on the conversion, just not messing with USDM support at all though....
