head light ring
« on: April 18, 2010, 07:21:59 PM »
I removed the head light chrome outer ring and found the ring that holds the cover (and lens) to the rest of the bucket is heavly rusted.  It is a metal strip that is shaped into a V and then bent to a circle.  It goes around the head light bucket (which has a matching but opposite direction V).  Mine is very rusty and could break at any time.  I was thinking of using POR-15 and a thin strip of fiberglass to  reinforce the rusty areas.  Any other ideas?  rusty
