I bought a used old style cobra 550/850 xp front brush guard. I did not get the hardware to mount it. I bought some hardware to mount it but when I get the top bolts and the bottom set lined up the middle set have a big gap. Is there some kind of spacer that go in there. Thanks

It may be bent, you may have to reform it to fit. Keep in mind that you are bolting it into aluminum at the top and center, so do not try to draw it in with the bolts. Doing so may strip the threads right out of the frame.

How big is the gap?

The more I look at it I think it will be OK. I had to order The top bolts from work they will be in later this week. Once I get the top bolts in and tight I think I will be ok. I was lucky found both front and rear on craiglist for $200.

I just installed one of the new cobra brush guards from guru and it came with extra washers to fill the gap behind the two middle mounts. 3 washers a piece filled the gap perfectly!
