    Anyone have any ideas (without a vehicle to measure within the area) on how to position reflectors in the correct factory location on my Aqualu tub? Pic with a good reference and measurements? Thanks

    Right even with the rust. Oh wait, no wonder you can't figure out where they go.

    Thanks Mr. Fast Eddy...looks like the light sits flush with the outside body line and about centered vertically on the rear bottom body line. If you put a straight edge (blue line) on the rear bottom body line, where would it cross the reflector face... on center, 1/2 inch down from the top??

    Thanks again

    Thanks all who replied...

    I'll check out the measurement and see if looks about right...
