Anyone else have this issue? Thinking about redoing this whole thing and carefully using betalink or something to make the reflector stick all the way around.
Never had this issue and have done quite a few of these. What kind of double sided tape did you use? Is it possible the bumper got deformed a bit in prying the original reflector out?
