I did the same thing (cut the feet off, smoothed off the brackets with an angle grinder, and drilled through them) when I installed my euro bumpers. Once the bolt was tightened in the bumper frame, I tightened a pre threaded jam nut back against the bracket face in order to insure a tight fit between the bracket, and fender. I reinstalled the rubber seals along with the brackets.

Great news that this worked for someone else too. You can't really see them behind the bumper but I am happy knowing they are there.

I wasn't able to include a pic of my installation for you for the same reason.

Looks great! I never grow tired of seeing pics of 107s transformed by mounting euro bumpers.
