Default 1998 Civic DX fix gap between headlamp and fender?

I fixed a new fender and headlight assembly on the driver side on my 1998 Honda Civic DX - I noticed that the headlight assembly took some effort to fit because the fender is from a 1999 Honda Civic and a little different from the 1998 Headlight lamp assembly edge that goes aligned with it.

Now, there is a about 3/4th inch gap. Is there any way I can fix the gap like this? Any way to use some decorative strip or any kind of filling?

if you want to be ghetto you can bondo it, real good and spray paint it... or you can leave it unpainted, other than that there's not much else you can do...

if you have the 98 headlight and the 99 fender its going to look funny anyways 96-98 was one style and 99-00 was the updated "facelift" for those year civic's

for the gap issue there is a write up on how to fix this i believe it was for a older civic than yours but it would be similar how to fix it.
