I've posted in New Bay but not sure if anyone's seen it. I'm buying a pair of eyelids that fit to headlamp surround, I've seen Brazibays with them fitted. Is it best to use adhesive or double-sided tape please? Im thinking the latter so that they can be removed iof necessary? Any ideas please?

Do you mean like these?



If so, no tape or adhesive required. You need to remove the light surround then push the eyelid through from the back, locating it at the top, then refit them together.

We loaded up the gap where the surround and lid meet, with waxoyl.

Tallulah thank you, very helpful.

I'll post a pic in a few days when it's done.

We had chrome eyelids at first, they lasted less than a year before starting to rust. We replaced them with stainless steel ones which still look as good as new 4 or 5 years later.
