Just fitted a set of OPG (original parts group) strut tower caps

They don't seem to have a way of being firmly secured , they just kind of 'slip on'

I mean they fit snug and don't move but I'm not sure if it's secure enough

I'd like it to be firmly secured on there as I'm paranoid that they'll fall off ...

Any ideas with this ?

They wouldnt be able to fall off because the room between the bonnet and strut isnt enough for them to fall out

I fully agree with the above. I've been driving with mine on for months and no problems.

i'll test clearance between the bonnet and caps with different size balls made from blu-tack :)

oh OK, looks better but probably adds weight so makes you go slower and use more fuel !
My VE is heavy enough already, but the original strut tops are rather ugly
