Kona Dew Deluxe 2013 - porteur rack

Anyone have a clue how to assemble this to the bike? Seems like they left no clearance between it and the front fender, leaving the fender prone to a lot of noise as it bounces against the bolts above or, even worse, jutting out on an angle. As a brand they do seem to have issues created by a sense of "artistic" merit, mainly around their rack and bag setups. The porteur rack seems ordinary in design and somewhat limited by application. Think I may just say meh and toss it. Unless one of you guys knows how to save it, (without cutting off the end of the plastic fender)? Cheers.

Actually not as bad in the end, just takes a little bending of the front bracket to make it fit properly. Think I made it hard on myself by the order in which I put it on. If anyone else is going to assemble this, make sure you put the rack on first, followed by the fender. Still not overly impressed with the design of it, though it does seem solid enough.
