Default Map Light install

ok..

I'm car stupid..so I gotta pregunta

I have this new map light for my 87 mustang GT T-top

andI bought a new dome light / dongle thingy (I think you guys know what I'm talking about) cuz the last one had a broken switch and a busted bulb

anyways...on the back side of the new map light (the part that goes into the roof chasis) there are these 2ish inch plastic legs that are definitely supposed to be there...however when I put the new map light in....the legs were too long and it didn't fit right...

the last map light had the legs cut off....but I don't know what the last guy did lol....but now there is a half inch of space betwen the map light and the roof ....should I just cut the legs off?

Default RE: Map Light install

you can always cut it and make it work...

I had to replace mine when I first bought my car, but I didnt have any problems with the new one fitting...
I bought mine on ebay for $15 in summer 05
