Bushwacker Fender gap

I recently installed bushwackers on my XJ but i installed them a little differently which has left small gaps between the fender flare and my body, in some areas up to an inch. my concern is with them filling up with mud, water, snow, etc. which they no doubt will. Is there a good way to close the gap between the plastic and metal to prevent the mud from filling up the flare?

Install them the right way?

i placed the rear 2 peice "assembly" back about an inch so the flare on the door wont ever crash into the body because it was pretty close as it was, i figured it wouldn't be hard to do and it wasn't. just got a small gap now.
