Default Removing bolt holding front bumper and fender tight(Low Car)

For you guys that are low, what approach did you use to remove that bolt holding the front bumper to the fender and finding a replacement? I dont want those quick release ties or whatever they are but I dont think, what I have here, will work. Any suggestions on how to keep the fender and front bumper firm against each other, without a bolt connecting the two, would be great.

Thanks

Figured I should update this post.

So the shop came up with their own remedy. They shaved the bolt off and the inner lip, leaving just enough room to do their own set up.

Ill add better pics once I get the car back, next week

definitely wont be enough, trust me. I updated with a new pic, youll want to explore a more drastic cut to the liner fender, if you want to go low.

So idk if this is related or not. But I just bought a bagged nismo and when its at a "low" but drivable setting going highway speeds, the portion of the bumper by the wheel that connects to fender is popped out slightly and it rattles like crazy. Not sure exactly how to fix it. Maybe I just need better hardware for the bumper to keep it secured? If I cant find a solution im just going to take it to a body shop and get their opinion lol.

its kind of an illusion. Thats a shot right before my front tires start going up my drive way. Theres a 5-10 degree incline on my driveway and I was just showing, if I went STRAIGHT ON at it, how close I get to hitting the ground.

On the stock body, I have a good amount of clearance, heres a pic of the actual ride height
