Look at the schematic that comes with the angel eyes. Is the black not a ground wire? yellow is power? How many wires total come out of the light fixture?

you have to make your own bracket I was told that JOIST HANGERS are one of the best brackets to use, they're only like $2 and some change, you'll have to do a little fabrication though.

as far as the H3 there is a certain way you have to put them in, they have little rivets that have to be aligned. one should be a creasent type shape and the other should be more square like.

Both black are ground, and both plug into a single connector on the harness supplied by optilux. Maybe hack up or modify the harness they sent you to use.
