Vert with ix flairs

Ok here goes.

I have a 1991 318ic which I want the flairs form the ix on it.

I have bought them and I see a little problem and now looking for a solution.

The problem as most people know is that the vert has a deeper body thus putting the flairs higher. so I'm thinking of cutting the panels and filling in the gaps.

Now the bonus with cutting them is it keeps the pieces all clean and I still can fasten them to the car. I'm left with these gapps between the bottom flair and the upper fender covers.

Question is, How can I fill the gaps with out rivets or a botched up job. I asked a plastics company and they had no idea. Any thoughts?

Glue the gaps shut n flush if that's what ur asking

Bodyshops have 3m stuff made for it.....just be aware that's it's a commitment and very damaging to remove if you want/need to. Strong stuff n bonds well/fairly quickly.
Shouldn't cost much either just for that part.
