I did a CRG search on this topic and found some helpful information, but did not find the answer to my question...My RS has the chrome trim ring around the front parking lot lights. From the factory how were these two different material assembled..Was it a sonic weld, compression fit or two part epoxy..They will not stay on once removed and reinstalled...

Eddie - Compression fit. Begin by installing the ring from the top, then along the sides, finishing at the bottom by snapping it into place. You can certainly hear & feel when it snaps into place.

Thanks Marty...I bought a new set of lens and trim rings and they would not fit to save me..Kept popping off no matter how I tried it...I was running out of time last week getting ready to go the Camaro Nationals,  so I took the new lens and trim rings ground a little here and there on the lens so the trim would fix (without popping off) and then epoxied them together.

I have my original all cleaned up,  painted and ready to go back on the car...Just could not figure why the new ones would not fit...
