Re-do painted reflectors?

Hey guys,

I'm from e90 post however, my father owns an f10. So being the great son I am I continued my modding on his car. All IND parts (grilles/gills/painted reflectors). I have one problem with my work. The front right reflector, I did not scrape off all the glue from the old one. And it caused the reflector to look pushed in. Any ideas? Just get some 3m adhesive?

Thanks in advance

I would just buy the grilles. Ordinary paints will not put up with rock chips.

I believe they are secured with 3m molding tape similar to this
You should be able to find this at your local autozone or auto parts store.

I bought a set of used clear front side reflectors. Prior to installing them I removed the old adhesive and applied new double sided tape I got at the local hardware store. Easy stuff.
