a little help for adjusting the headlights
I just wanted to add a bit to that information:
If you have epoxy which is thin, like the consistency of honey, but you need something more like chewing gum or putty, you can "stiffen" the mixture.
Add dry sawdust to the mix, while you are mixing, to get the mixture thicker. Any hardwood sawdust will work, I guess, but you can use fine sawdust, from fine sandpaper (not from a saw), on the classy little jobs. Epoxy does not have great strength, of itself, so (I believe) the sawdust filler can make the "build" stronger in some ways.
Cautionary note: Never mix epoxy in wax-paper cups, because the wax will make the set-up fail to happen, and all you get is a useless mess. I use disposable little plastic salsa cups (from the fast-food places) for mixing epoxy batches. You can see through them, so if you are mixing two-tone epoxy (hardener and resin of different colors), you can see when the mix is "thorough" enough. Most places will give you some salsa cups for the asking, or I have bought an entire sleeve of salsa cups from the manager at times, for a few bucks. Amazon will sell you all the salsa cups you'd ever need, for maybe a ten$pot.

P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
