Ok so i go to swap my headlight, pull it out real quick. Put in new one, then go to put metal stay on the headlight and the plastic piece broke by the screw. Now the piece wont stay on and I cant put in a headlight, is there anyway I can glue the metal stay by the screw (its a 95' zx6r) or do i have to buy a whole new headlight? thanks! matt

You may be able to glue it back. If you try that I'd use some quick set epoxy(bonds like a bitch). They also make some steel-reinforced epoxy that bonds even better(available at hardware or auto parts stores). Good luck.

Life is short, but sweet for certain...

Duct tape is the shizz:D Also, you could just make another metal stay to go over the plug to hold it in instead of over the actual bulb. You can screw the stay into the black plastic, it won't crack, and there is a gap inside before the reflective plastic.As long as the screws aren't longer than 1/2 inch it would work.
