Re: IRS Camber problem, low buses

Re: Rear tail light sizes and trim

Iโ€™m pretty sure the all red USA rear lenses are slightly smaller in size, so I suspect you may have bought Chrome trims for USA lights unfortunately. Just fitting orange red to my 63 and original USA trims didnโ€™t fit, they were to small.
