Hi Mitch, You have to cut them to mimic what the originals did to allow the gasket to form and flow around the corners. You just have to be careful and use a razor blade or xacto knife. Based on what I can see of the originals, they already had the relief cuts in them for a production setting.

OK, that is what I did and they look OK, I think I needed to cut just a little deeper as they still wanted to buckle. I have to take them off again sometime, so I'll make a slight "adjustment". Yours lay very flat and look original.

My 72 Nova SS built in Van Nuys Cali has the front bumper marked on the inside too.
