Trim the fender bead, but not at the factory rounded end. Take a piece out 
of the portion that will fit under the windscreen "foot". Then the front 
portion will come from the headlamp back under the front of the foot. The 
rear portion will continue from under the foot to just touch the base of the 
windscreen post...do not try to fit it under the post. The raw cut ends will 
be hidden under the "foot".

This picture shows an original undisturbed car.
