I need help with my Mugen Lip

I just recently bought a Mugen Lip for 98 - 02 accord coupe off Ebay from street racing concept. I drive a 2000 accord coupe, but I can't seem to get the lip to fit right. Plus when I try to get the lip to fit there are little gaps from the lip to the bumper on both sides. Is there a way to mold it? or am I doign something wrong? The sides of the lip don't seem to reach both sides of the bumper, I feel like am a centimeter off on each side. Please I need help!!!

when you put it on it might be very very snug
thats why you need to use screws on the sides

Excellent finger pointing skills, well from the pics it looks like it's too wide and too shallow correct? did you dbl check that it was for your model?

Yeah...that's how it's supposed to be.

It's an EXTREMELY snug fit, so you have to force it on your bumper. That's good though because it's more of a secure fit.

yeah molding it is just taking fiberglass or something for plastic, and covering up the seam. making it smooth and paint it.

I'd be weary of molding on a lip especially on the front bumper on a dropped car. It's definitely gonna crack sooner or later along the seam of the lip and bumper. Even minor scrapes goin up driveways will weaken the bonding material.
