You must enlarge this hole to 1.125" to accept the new lamp socket by using a round file or a large drill bit. Somethings you don't want to do:

1) DO NOT - scrap the inside of the dome, it's coated with a reflective paint.

2) DO NOT - go too deep into the opening, you do not want to damage your lens.

3) DO NOT - make the hole too large, check the fit often with the lamp socket provided


Step 6

Here's the finished hole. Don't worry about the plastic shavings getting inside your lens, they can be easily be blown out with compressed air or washed out with water, but - besure to let it dry out before reinstalling lamps.
