#5041: Headlight!

So I got a headlight this morning on my way to work, and I arrived at work early enough that I had time to replace it in the parking lot.

Problem: one screw (of two) was so badly rusted that instead of loosening it, I ground a conical divot in the head; I could not budge it. I ended up pulling the bezel out and breaking out a small chunk of plastic, but I figure I can get the screw out at my leisure and use epoxy to glue the bezel back together, and be none the worse for wear. WTF, it's a 16-year-old truck.

And now I have two headlights again.

Of course at 9:45 PM on Friday I get a call which ends up keeping me at work an extra 45 minutes. Argh. That means I didn't get home until it was almost midnight. WTF.
