Thread: Jim and Sarah's Nova - The third project !

  1. #231
    Hi all,

    As you may recall the Nova is fitted with the Moon Ace headlights.

    I have always been pleased with them but aware something isn't quite finished around them. Though the rebate for headlight covers remains a perspex cover would just touch the upper lamp brow and in my opinion wouldn't look great.

    I am also not a fan of perspex covers as they scratch and weaken the light output.

    So I don't plan to cover the lights, but do want to finish the gap between the light pod and recess.

    So I have been playing with card and wood templates prior ot making a fibreglass trim, which I intend to pit once cleaned up and painted in satin black.

    Would welcome peoples thoughts before I get brave and drill securing holes!

    Jim,

    You could always attach it with 3M double sided automotive trim tape. Then if you don't like it after the honeymoon it makes the divorce a lot easier and won't leave a hole to fill in.

    Looks good, could it not be bonded rather than screwed?

    Or even better glass it to the pod, sand paint & then the pod will look like one unit

    Rather then fit a trim piece, why not mask it up and apply a bead of silicon sealant instead? If you don't like the end result it is reversible without affecting the paintwork..
