    Bugeye headlight

    Does anyone else's driver's headlight stick out significantly more beyond the hood than the pass side? My lights are aimed correctly per FSM. I'm wondering if mine sticks out further due to the drop, the non oem black headlights, or the 'meh' quality radiator crossmember repair from years ago.

    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    My driver's side is the same way and I'm running the black housings as well. Don't remember my original lights being like that.

    Hmm, that's wierd.

    I could believe that they were originally set up for left hand of the road driving maybe.

    I'm 99% sure mine are the same. One definitely sticks out more than the other, I'm just not 100% sure its the drivers side. I believe mine are OE

    That's crazy, I always figured it was due to my cars, uh, checkered past

    Looked on the way out this morning. Mine is not quite so pronounced, but it definitely does it. Driver's side.

    Intresting.

    I wonder if I could remedy it without too much work. A bit of precision adjustment to the headlight bracket with a mini sledge perhaps?

    That's a horrible idea.

    Remove the bumper cover, foam, and aluminum member. It'll reduce the apparent-ness of the poke.
