    Headlight Eyebrows

    I got some of these ages ago,and decided to see how they looked on the car,and discovered that they dont sit properly over the top of the light. They are made from ABS not fibreglass,but has anyone else had this problem?
    They are not original VX items,but i thought that something as simple as a light brow could be made properly,obviously not!

    If they are ABS, once you apply some Tigerseal or other similar adhesive they will flex to form the shape of the headlight.

    My Irmscher ones were like that too until I stuck em down fast!

    Failing that just carefully file down any proud edges on the brows before painting.

    my irmscher copies (ABS) fit nice. I have however fitted them under the black rubber weather seal and then used loads of trim tape (3m sticky back badge tape)
