I was unable to close the gap at the bottom of the painted trim ring on my 51 nose bullet. Is there a trick to it? I've seen many others that do not have the gap.

Not sure how to close that gap, but I do like your cool lights!!!

I can only imagine that the lip edge that fits over the chrome ring may need some tweaking, or you've had the ring rechromed and the additional few microns of chrome have added to the circumference. It's amazing what a small issue may make over a full circumference. Should be virtually no gap.13337

is there any way to "angle" it down from the inside as you would a headlight that was aimed too high?

the simplest way to have it repaired would be to ship the car to me. i'm sure i could figure it out in a couple of years!!! :rolleyes:

It looks fine with the chrome thing you used, your car isn't stock anyway, besides who'd notice besides a bullet nose freek. Not sure he'd even catch it.

I was wondering if that was the problem. At least I have my Buck Rodgers lights to take your focus away from it.

Is one bulb out (at about 10 o'clock position) or is that just a photo problem?

Jon, here is a picture of mine. It took me a few times before I could get it to fit properly.

The picture didn't make it. Don't know what I did wrong. I followed the directions in the forum,
