i like the way the right side is nice and sweeped but the left one to me looks like its more straighter and then curves across the bottom if you can cut the gasket out and then send it to me ile send it off for chroming as i want it shiny like the light to match in it might be like this to you but the pictures are dark to see the shine. i am a fussy bastard haha

Measured both sides against each other on this template:

Drew around it then flipped it over to see how it lined up with the other side & it looks ok to me ?

Also the scwiggley line around the template is to show im not lying about the equality between the two sides.

By light cover dont you mean plate to body gasket ?/
No the polishing will have to be re-done as im gonna give the bottom scratch ago (wont be seen as the light will cover) but i'l try anyways.

no mate i meen the light i am using will it cover the scratch marks accross the bottom if so dont worry about them if you aint going to see them just polish where it will be seen and that will do nicely. havent you got any car polish or brasso i remember using car polish on my door catches and they come up top notch.
