Default Front Bumper/Fender Gap

I've had this problem since I bought my GX. I'm guessing the original owner bumped into something or maybe it's a defect? I used to be able to push it in and it would stay for awhile but eventually the plastic tabs wore out. I pulled down the plastic in the wheel well to see what was there (nothing).

I couldn't find any resolution from inside as there is nothing relating to this area of the bumper. Only the two screws in the fender well and the plastic tabs.

I pulled the plastic bumper back and scuffed it up with a grinder.

This is what it looks like three weeks later. A little bit of a wider gap compared to the other side but I can live with it.A big improvement from what I HAVE been living with.

The good side.
