56 Oval tail light woes.
« on: April 22, 2016, 09:40:19 PM »
Finally putting my tail lights back together, and can't seem to get the retaining clips back on. Using original housing and Hella lenses with reprop bezels, lenses backing and clips. Either I need 3 left hands or there's a trick out there I'm missing. Anyone had any experience?

Snowflakes are a goofy setup! I don't know why they made em like they did? The bulb holder balance stuff together without popping out is fun. Sorry doesn't really help

Nope Josh that doesn't help at all, but it does let me know it's not just me. I did end up getting one side done, but wound up chipping  the paint on the housing.
