Pretty sure that's the flashline from the mould. Simply get some fine sand paper and rub it off. In fact as it's a fibreglass part, i'd give the whole thing a good rub down with wet'n'dry as they're sometimes not perfect!

This is assuming you're talking about that TINY lip (few mm on that picture)...

You fix them wherever those dents for screw holes are on the arch (you have to drill holes in the arch there!)... There should be maybe 1 screw/rivet to go through the A panel, the rest through the wings with maybe another one through the front panel!

the lip is for fitting a rubber strip if you are not bonding on the arches

if you don't fit a rubber trim the arches will rub on the paint work and damage it :ohno:
