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.

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.

Hi all

I ordered a set of these from VW Heritage. Arrived the next day but they are not the right shape for the rims. Do you need to bend them or are there different types?

Thanks
Stef

Sounds like they need to be bent into place! Does seem a bit odd. Thanks for the warning though
