Default Mishimoto radiator clearence issue

I have a 99 miata with A/C and i was told the mishimoto radiator would fit with no problem.....there is a problem, about an inch and a half problem. The radiator is hitting the A/C condenser which is holding the radiator closer to the engine to where the tabs that hold it in place on the top are about an inch to an inch and a half away.... any suggestions? if you have one in place please post a pic. thanks!

What, no kiss? Just ram it right in with no lube. (i.e. how about an intro with those fries?)

unbolt the top bolt on the condesor that holds it to the car. Bend the mounting tabs forward. Bolt condensor back on and check clearance. Repeat till it fits.

But yes, intro thread next time would be good

Because I'm nice, here is the pic from my build thread showing the tabs you need to bend
