Accessing v8 front-lower valence bolts

Hi,

I'm just fitting the V8 lower valence to my 1995 and notice that there is zero access to the two outer upper bolts on the v8 version. How do these get tightened? The shop wants to cut access holes in the valence at the top of the air ports, but there must be a way to do it without that?

If they look they will find some plastic caps hiding the bolts.

Ah! This is a new unfinished part from Lotus -- so are those plastic caps in holes that are drilled into the part? Possibly missing from the raw piece from the factory?

Do you have a photo of that area by chance?
