    Well, I've got my angel eyes fitted and working fine, however they interfere with the self levellers and don't sit properly no matter how much I p1ss around with them or the shroud. I want to glue them onto the rim of the reflector which will cure all problems. Anyone know what glue would be the best for this? Cheers.

    Don't use hot glue! It will melt again or become brittle and crack in the cold.

    as neal said, hot glue will be no good and will melt again when the lights are on,

    I used superglue on mine, a dap at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock and they have stayed put not for several months
