Default 2000 SSEi Fuse block question (under hood and back seat)

Ok, heres the deal ppl.. I just got the Hella Optilux 2500 Angeleyes driving lights and have a couple questions concerning the wiring of them. I know that I can wire them by running new wires, fuses, and relays, but I want a clean and factory job.. I already figured that I am going to just wire the bulbs using the factory switch, wire, fuse, and relay considering the Hella'* came with the same rated stuff anyway. Here is my dilema. I noticed in both the under hood and under back seat fuse blocks, there are spare fuse spots in there. I am wanting to maybe open one of the boxes up and just run my wires on one of the spare fuse spots so that way, you will never even know that there is aftermarket wiring at all. My question is: Is this possible? If so, how do I open up the fuse block so I can connect my wires to a spare fuse spot? Hope one of you guys out there can help me, cause I would sure hate to have to run a seperate fuse holder under my hood, just for the LED'*.

Thanks,
Derek

ok man I just got some HID installed on my ride and said "ok cool .. now thats done, now I can move on" BUT NOOOOOOOOOO... YOU HAD TO SHOW UP with this cool optiplex angle eyes stuff. Damm that stuff looks awesome. IM gonna buy myself a pair today.

in answner to your question my first blush thoughts would be, the spare fuses in the plastic fuse holder have no metal female contact for the mini fusse to slip into.
ok so you would have to fabricate, or get a junkyard plastic fuse box to get the female porton of the fuse holder. Honestley Im not shue if the spare fuse area in the plastic fuse box has the built in "retaning clips" to hold the female portion of the wiring harness.

I dont know for shue. I say its worth a look. be sure to let us know wich way you go.

cheers
