I would even consider a clamp to hold it in place overnight to ensure it bonds securely.

P.S. I wasn't telling you to get those one, but saw the costs for the ford ones escalating way out of control....

I know you weren't "telling" me Paul, thats not like you. Thanks for the advice re fitting. If I did clamp the reflectors overnight, some bugger from around my "slighty dodgy" neighbourhood would probably steal them.

Thing is the MOT isnt till November, so I dont know why Im thinking about it now. I'll probably forget about the reflectors by then, put the car in for its MOT, then be suprised when it fails.
