That is really freaking weird!

What type of light bulbs are you running? I cant see them being hot enough to melt the plastic but I have seen weirder things happen....



The stock tail lights melted/broke the lens on my camaro once... but it was like a perfect storm type of scenario...

Could they have heated it up at the shop to make it fit? Or possibly heat up the metal around it for bodywork? I would think that if it was the bulb or electrical the lens would have a hole melted through by now.

Go back to the body shop and let them see it. The longer you wait the less likely they will fix it at their expense.
