Default Look what I broke setting up my angel eyes







I think I am going to do something like what "Merlin 91/97" did in the picture below to solve my problem.... I already drilled the brackets that came with my Angel eyes just like Merlin 91/97 did. Btw if you read this "thanks for posting those pictures of your install

Wouldn't it be easier to have bent the tabs on the frame ot accomodate the angels instead of drilling the angel bracket?

Agreed..Merlins setup looks like it will work for the adjuster. Unless you are near a junkyard and can get a couple

You guys are way too hard on those things. :P

Do you think the metal was just old? I can't see it being stressed and fatigued in that application.
