Not all rear panels have vertical surfaces to mount your rear lamps. Our moulded lamp housings offer an easy way to mount your lamps vertically on a sloping rear panel. Here's how to trim them.
1. First make a cardboard template. Draw around the lamp with a magic marker.
4. Mark the cutting line on the moulding - we've used a Tippex pen here.
|2. Cut the hole with a sharp knife. Depending on the angle of the sloping rear panel you may have to extend the cut hole a little to an 'Elipse' shape. Trial and error is the best way here - just trim a little at a time......||5.Trim carefully to the line with snips or strong scissors. Trim in stages, testing the angle against your panel every time. You can always trim a little more off - but you can't put it back on. For final finishing you can level the cut edge by rubbing it on a sheet of 60 grit abrasive paper glued to a piece of flat ply or MDF.|
3. ... until the housing sits nicely in the hole at the required angle.
|6.Glue a strip of rubber 'U' channel around the edge and you're ready to mount it to your panel..|
