Then you can tin it and the wire you want to tap into it, and solder them together. Works MUCH better, don't spend as much time hunting down which scotch lock didn't break the plastic or fell apart.
I actually did what you just said, however I figured I would make the write up as user friendly as possible.. being not everyone has a soldering iron etc..
Like I mentioned in the write up.. that is not the only way to do it. In fact there were a few things I did differently with mine than what I put in the write up, but I wrote it up the way I did so it was easiest followed and certain to work.
Honestly the write up could have simply said what supplies/materials you needed, and that you wire it to your parking lights with nothing else lol. It is such a simple installation and alot of it is common sense, figure it out as you go type work, but I figured I would spend the time to show every step for those who would rather not have to think about what they are doing and prefer to follow directions.
Just glad I could share this with others and I hope to see pictures of others Halos/Angel eyes soon!
