Default Angel eye fogs

What is the degree of difficulty for hooking up angel eye fog lights? I can just use the same power cable that was hooked up to the stock lights allready, then hook up a toggle switch inside my car for the ring eye effect? Or is there more to it then a simple hour long task?

You'll have to splice into your stock wiring. And most people wire the rings to the parking lamps

No switches, and they're on whenever you have those lamps on.

Some have modified the stock light bracket. For the lights it depends. if you want to have eyes/lights on at same you just splice into the existing power for both. But if you want to have independent control on which effect is on you will need to run an additional wire and switch.

Allright, so if I am reading this right. I can have the main fog light power wire tapped into the stock power wire, then for the halo effect seperately all I do is run another wire and have a switch at the end of that one?

Here'* a link to how my install was done...

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...&highlight=eye

I place 3 illuminated toggle switches in under my console.
They control the Angel Eye "halos", my LED grill light, and the neon lights inside the car.
The halo'* and led grill lights are connected to my parking lights.
I wired the main angel eye fog lights to my existing fog wiring, so my stock switch still works.

Hope that info helps....

I mean, what can possibly go wrong, its only electrical stuff...

One thing to think about, The stock fog wiring, will cut out with high beams. I had my first change to drive with the Hella driving lights, and my high beams, and DAMN. Definetly do the switch they supply.

You get EVERYTHING you need for the angel eyes in the box. All wiring and a "1 off 2" switch. They hookup to your battery, and the ground by the battery, and are fully independant of the normal ones.
