Default Headlight Conduit

The indentations on my conduit ferrules aren't deep enough to engage in the j-slots of my headlight sockets. I have a dull centerpunch to use, should I make up a hardwood dowel with a transverse hole to punch the indentations into? Or is there another good way?

just wondering: do you have the older repros where the indentation is barely a dimple? newer repros I bought have a deeper indent more like original and click fairly well onto the sockets, though I am sure the total design worked best with factory parts.

I'll check on the dremel tool approach.

My conduits are probably older repro parts. I'm going to try to make them work before I break down and buy new parts.
