Fender Sills Factory

O.k. quick question. It looks to me that a lot of D-90s have this problem. My 94 has the factory diamond plate fender sills on it that appear to intrude on how the hood closes. Any solutions.
1. Replace with one that don't interfere if so who makes them?
2. Sharpie a line and have them cut?

Thank you.
Clay

You could adjust the hood bump stops (at the front of the hood) so it doesn't hit them..On my truck there is a noticeable gap between the hood and the fenders.

Mine is factory and it closes fine, but very close. So I put little rubber bumper pads along the wing under the bonnet that make it float just above the diamon plate all along.
