Are your crank bolts torqued down? That crank really looks like it's sitting too far out; look how much space there is between it and the chain stay.
The FD doesn't look too bad. What if you gave the cage a tweak so the rear of it was a bit lower? That might raise the front just enough to make it all work.
This is one of those things that wrenches don't talk about but can make all the difference between a "good-enough" fit and a perfect one.
