    headlight

    woops ! just noticed my 2008 tuono's first mot is overdue !!
    All will be fine but there is a star shaped crack from a stone on one of the headlights, is that a definate failure or does it depend on where it is on the lens and whether or not it affects the beam. It's above the bulb and doesnt notice at all at night !
    Theyre expensive new and rare as hens teeth secondhand..

    I think it would take the heat fine. You do not need a lot. I'd put this up against most any glue/sealer. This is how I mounted my AFR meter.

    I had a stone chip in my headlight a dn it passed its MOT ok. Its only if the light is out of alignment that is causes a problem.
    I was lucky to get a second hand one off ebay, think it was about 35 + postage.
