Is there an alternate way to attach the headlight bezel? I have had two come off, so the bottom screw is evidently not holding, as well as the top lip.

What I did for screw holes that have been rounded out to oversize like the corner trim on the top of the door trim chrome, was to fill the hole with JB Weld to give the screw something to bite on. Using over size screws would just make matters worse.

Thanks. I was thinking about that or another type of screw lock adhesive but thought they might be too brittle. Think I will go with JB.
