The top adjuster has broken it's spot welds on both headlamp buckets of my Parkview. I was wondering if I could just drill them and the bucket and use sheet metal screws? Maybe a little loc-tite on them?

If you do end up using pop-rivets, make sure to use steel ones, and not aluminum ones.

I take it, you guys don't like the idea of sheet-metal screws? I don't know how to do a pop rivet.

Spend the $7.00 for a rivet gun.
