Default Angel Eye and/or wiring gurus.

For those who have the angel eye fogs, or anyone who knows about wiring...how would I wire mine up to the overhead switch? I'm guessing I would just cut the stock fog wires at the plug and splice them to the angel eyes?

Or should I just leave those alone and use the switch provided once I get it through the firewall?

Afterall, I'd like to leave the option of taking off the angel eyes when I sell the car (if I do) and putting the stock ones back in.

You could use the old wiring, I think Alien did. But you won't have a switch for the "eyes", you would still have to run a wire into the cabin with a switch to control that.

if you used the stock wiring, why wouldn't the stock switch attached to the stock wiring work?

Seth, so what you're saying is I might as well just use the provided switch since I'll need it for the ring anyway? If so, that'* what I was thinking. I'll just go with the switch. It'll make things easier.

BB, I think he'* talking about the switch working, but only for the driving light part. I'd still need a switch that would work with the ring light.

The switch supplied is a three way: Eyes, Off, Driving lights. The stock wiring and switch will work, but with only one option:eyes or lights.

Precisely.

Or, use the stck switch and wire for the light part, and the included switch just for the Halo. That way the actual light would perform the same as the original, and you could turn the ring on any time you want.

That'* exactly what I want to do. But I may not since I'd have to cut the stock wires and if I ever sell the car I'd have to leave the Angel Eyes in. But I'd rather take them off and put stock ones back in for the buyer. Can't let him/her get away with all my goodies

Save the connectors with the stock lights, and resplice 'em if or when that day comes.

me and a friend were talking about this would it be safe to run a 55W light off the stock switch which has a 35W bulb in it? so what i was thinking for mine was run the halo off the stock interior swittch and run a seperate switch for the light itself

Pete don't sell the car!!! If you get a SSEi next year keep yours as a winter car. Then you won't feel bad about the rust, and you'll be BonniePimpin all year long yo.
