2003-2007 recon mirror gap

I installed some recon clear mirror lights and the passenger side is good but the driver side has a bad gap at the bottom. Any body else have this problem, if so how did you fix it ?

Please post pics of gap before and after if you will.

Thx for your help !

I have stayed away from that particular Recon product when I saw first hand the poor QA of the fit.

I have used their cab light kit for over 3 years with no issues.

I seen good and bad fitments. I have their cab lights too and like the look with the white trucks.

I have Recon smoked mirror, roof, and third brake lights. I do know what you are talking about with the mirror lights, as I had the same problem. I do not have any pictures to show, but what I did was cut out 4, 2 for each side, little U shaped clips from stainless steel shim stock. They are about 3/4" "square" with a slot cut from one side. With the mirror lights installed, I slipped these U shaped clips under the plastic clips that are on the lights that are suposed to hold them in. This pulled the lights down a little tighter and now they look factory. No gaps whatsoever. I was a little displeased with the original fit, but with this little garage engineering they fit perfect. Hope this helps.
