Thanks for the update Ken. I also did what you did; it took a little effort, but they are back in place where they should be. I was afraid of pushing them in and breaking the light. The trick with pulling back on the wires from the inside worked for me as well. Though not 100% bright on the side (bulbs are still more forward based; sides are more faded and dark in color) I'm happy; now that it is more prototypical! Thanks all for your suggestions.
