Your front bumper actually looked normal Like mine when I installed it. I believe your suppose to have the bracket loose ( the 2 main in the middle) mount the corners then go back and tighten it all. I could be wrong buts thats how I did it altough you wanted to tuck yours in a bit more. 

I have tried adjusting it every which way. It was more the issue of the front end not being straight rather than adjusting the mounts. It is getting there now though.

Thanks for doing these videos, I really enjoy all of them, especially the Porsche 911.  I have a little bit of regret with that marque, I had a friend give me an old 911 he ran on the track, it was in bad shape, but instead of repairing the engine and body, I parted it out and used the funds on my 280Z.  I probably could not have afforded it, Zs are so much cheaper, but I feel like I missed a chance to drive one of those machines.

Parts for Z's are generally reasonable. Parts for Porsche's are insane, I originally thought I would build my 911 as a track/street car, but I soon learned I couldn't afford the maintenance costs. 

 

That said, I have even looked at getting an MX5 as a track car, as they are much more affordable than Z's now, and you can trash the hell out of it without worrying if you break it.
