Hey Boosty, you hadn't even posted yet
But yeah, take them to a good shop that will let you work with them to get the tips positioned how you want before they weld them for good.

Good deal! For whatever it'* worth, if I could do it all over again, I would have postioned the tips furher into the bumper so they aren't sticking out as far. I've got as much as 3/4" sticking out.

X2 !! I may just cut them off and shorten them up flush.

The only problem is that the offset doesn't perfectly match the bumper'* curve, so if one tip is flush the other one is slightly off. I'd put it so the inner tip is flush and the outer one is slightly tucked under I guess.

or, being they are so close, angle the tip so it is aligned. they will point slightly in, but I don't thing anyone would notice. I would have to look at them at the time.
