IMO, a customer shouldn't have the responsibility to fix the manufacturer's product. Would you buy something that had obvious flaws? In the automotive manufacturing world, we call those parts: scraps.
Unfortunately, that's the road with aftermarket body parts. None will ever fit perfectly. In all my years modifying cars, only one piece I ever bought fit perfectly.
