I recently purchased and installed a set of altezza generation 3 tail lights. After I installed them, they seemed to be loose. I removed them, messed with the two metal clips, and put the tail lights back on. It seemed to help a little, but they still move a bit when I touch them. They also seem to have pretty good gaps between the tail light and the car. What can I do to remedy the looseness? How can I seal the tail lights better without gluing them down? Or is the slight gap and shifting normal?

I'd get some weatherstipping foam from Home Depot, etc. Comes in strips with peel&stick on one side, maybe 1/16" thick, about 3/8" wide - it's closed-cell, so shouldn't sponge moisture. Apply it to perimeter of light before you stick it in the opening.

Mine had moved a little too. I screwed them in tight and messed with the clips worked fine for me. Yes mine also have some space. I wondered if they sell chrome rings to go around that area to hide that.

KingKole - For chrome trim go to www.ptwoody.com and check out the Flex Chrome. I haven't tried it yet but it sure looks like a place to start.[8D]

20 bucks for 6 inches pieces of striping. I really would like that 20 I spend on the sample pack then the extra 20 for the one I want, to go to my gas bill. [:0]

Price is pushing my away. Would look good though.
