How to Adjust Headlights

Ive had smoked headlights i bought from latemodel restoration for about a year now. Every since ive had them ive really had no idea how to adjust them or make them stay tilted up to where i can actually see at night. I didnt want to spend $80 so a ford mechanic could do it for me but no one around me seems to know how to adjust them. Their extremely frustrating and i would never recommend them to someone because of the horrible light quality at night even with $50 sylvania silverstar bulbs in them. But does anyone have any idea how to adjust them? They never stay in place when i tighten the little plastic things on the screws

$80 at Ford? Geez...most local mechanics charge about 10-20 for that...you should try to find a good one.

personally I'd recommend getting some OEM Cobra headlights...make sure they are real Ford, then if you like them tinted buy some spray tint and go that route
