Great DIY write up!!!

Few odd questions:

a) where stated in write up, "thread the new pieces on the existing headlight adjustment white screw", is the cutting of the new threads necessary on the new piece done by the screw with the 10mm nut (that can also be turned by the white adjuster screw but not advised), at the direction shown in following picture?

Or, maybe i got this thing all wrong in how the new adjuster piece is screwed/threaded on to the existing screw.

b) In the following picture, how are the A and B adjustments affect the proper alignment of the headlight?

c) After cutting the new threads on the new pieces, is it recommended to still use the 10mm nut to do final headlight adjustment? Or use the white adjuster screw?

Thanks much!
