Default Headlight cover rims

In response to a PM:

The headlight cover rims were cut out of a 3mm sheet of brass then drilled, countersunk and later chromed.

I used slightly curved top stainless screws of a coarse thread - through to some captive bent metal nuts. A second attempt with the next size up was an improvement but not yet perfect. Too much force on the screws can crack the TVR covers

Sealing these rims and covers is very difficult. My local TVR garage use a black silicone sealant, but the gaps around my rims and covers still allow water ingress. Tried using a neoprene gasket but this made it too thick for the screws in use.

Happy Christmas,

Kidge
