key word here is heat it up A LITTLE. too much and it will turn super soft and distort and break. heat, use card to fold over into place and hold there until it cools and it will stay there forever.

looks tight. make sure you run your high beams at all times so your visable. added benefit is that no taping headlight for trackdays. just remove lightbulb

does look good. Only thing I could see as potential issue in future is the fading on the headlight cover. It is exposed to heat from the bulbs and is plastic; so you might have a pretty mesh shadow when it is removed some day.
