Fitting rear tail light covers?

Postby BMcD » Fri Jan 25, 2013 11:55 am

Just picked a set of fiberglass rear light covers. Going to get them sprayed, just wondering whats the best way of fitting them? Haven't a clue what to be using for it?

I used very thin double sided tape around the edges and they have never budged, been on with about 14 months now.

I also fitted mine with double sides 3m tape. Same stuff you fit number plates with. Also if you want to take them off gain it won't damage anything either.
