Hello,
I have a pair of the chrome headlight visors. You can see what I am talking about in the LMC catalog linked here:
Headlight visors

How do you install them? Do they go between the lamp and the retaining ring? Or do they go between the retaining ring and the trim ring? Do you have to throw away the seals that fit into the trim ring?

The arc of the visor doesn't really fit either option. Do they have to be bent slightly?

Hmmm... no responses. I guess no one wants to admit they have installed these rather goofy things! not me

I will admit to installing them, 30+ years ago, so I don't remember the procedure. Sorry. secret

I think they go behind the retaining ring but not sure.....I do not think they go back behind the headlight bucket.....


....now lets see who corrects me!!

I put them between the retaining ring and the outer trim ring. I tried between the lamp and retaining ring, but it was too tight; the retaining ring wouldn't fit to hold the lamp in place.

They do slide around a bit - if it turns out to be a problem, I will stick them in place with double sided tape.
