Clear Repeater - EB issues
Went down and picked up some AU1 Fairmont repeaters for the EB today and I've ended up putting them on 'backwards' with the thin bit at the back and large at the front BECAUSE (dont destory me yet) upon trying to install them facing the favoured and proper way with the thin part facing forwards, I was perplexed as to how I could go about getting the approximately 4cm deep clip to fit into an approximately 2cm deep gap, ie. the metal body of the car prevents any deepening. The only thing I can think of is cutting the pressure clip, but then it wouldnt be a pressure clip but more like a pointless bit of plastic sticking out. Then that would result in the only option being glueing the repeater in, but that would be a bitch to change globes if the situation arose. I've attached a quick image of a top view, as from what I've written its kind of hard to picutre whats going on. Obviously there is a way to do it as everyone else has it thin end first, but I can't figure it out.
