        The low side horizontal should be level with each other.

                you must have the same problem as I have, the hotspot is a lot above the cutoff line and I had to move the lit bulb by hand on a dark area to find it out. I now have to move it towards 7 o'clock and I am thinking of trying something like this:

                  Seems a bit thick, but if it works, it works. Usually we use cardboard like from a cereal box, sometimes double layer it with double sided tape.
