Re: [DML] Flipping Headlight Buckets Upside Down



Oops -- he didn't say who the Boo Boo was.... (I just assumed it was one of my regular detractors).

Anyway, it *IS* possible to flip the buckets (and the brackets of course) over. As stated, my car has been like this ever since Spring 2008. Every person who drove my car at DMA FFT'11 drove on upside down buckets (they drove at night).

You have to cut two notches in the underbody, not the fascia, for the raised areas around the adjusting screws to nestle into. Only takes a minute or two with a Dremel tool. Before regular detractors' brains explode: you're at the edge of the underbody already and the notches are only 2 or 3 inches wide.

Work smarter, not harder.
