I thought that might be how you did it. Sounds easier enough. Like you said the tricky part is holding everything in place. I bought headlight gaskets and used black electrical tape to hold the gasket , then just trimmed it away after the headlights were assembled.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.
