aftermarket bumper covers

I'm new to the world of honda aftermarket parts. I am replacing the rear bumper cover on a 2003 accord ( old one damaged by a new driver with no damage to the car underneath). The cover I have is made by YCC, made in Tiawan. I replaced the front cover a year ago with one from the same company without any problems.

I tried to put it on and it is too small. When it is centered the bolt holes are partially covered by the cover; covered enough that I am not able to thread the bolts in. If I put on one side then it is 5/16ths short on the other side.

I am going to return it and try a different brand that is available from the same shop. I am posting here first in the event someone has insight or tricks to offer that might help.

thanks

OEM bumper is the real way to go.

With aftermarket bumpers, you'll face problems like yours everytime; poor fitment.
