Well as some of you know, I have had problems with my headlights being lined up right and stuff. Ever since I ordered my blacked out headlights, the driver side headlight went fine, but when it came to the passenger side, the tabs under the headlight would not go in the slot of the headlight holder for nothing. Me being dumb, I dremel BOTH those tabs off. I can now get the headlight on no problem. Problem was with these clips gone, my headlight would move a little without them. So then I decide to dremel the tabs off the old headlight. The long tab under the old headlight I epoxied on the new headlight. It fit fine. So the short tab on the headlight must have been the problem. Well I wish I just cut the short tab off cause now that the long tab is just epoxied, I'm not sure how much longer it will stay glued cause there is this bridge I drive over frequently and it is terrible bumpy and I don't want it to shake loose. How can I get the tab to stay glued on better cause I wouldn't be surprised if it already broke off. Its a small problem but bothers the hell out of me. :(

Yea but its pretty redneck and involves drilling into the housing. Make some small aluminum brackets and attach to the headlight housing and then use those as the tabs.

Yeah I know. My dad always gives me a hard time if I have to learn the hard way. Thats why I haven't told him about it. But I saw this epoxy at lowes thats used specifically for plastics. I'll go ahead and buy that stuff and see what happens.

haha. No way am I drilling into them. I'll try this epoxy for plastics. I've had good luck with using epoxy before on other things and hopefully it won't let me down with this.
