Default Ahhhh Crap!

Geeze, I was working outside on my car and I had the phone out there just incase someone called. Well someone did, and when I was running to get it I stepped on a pair of xenon lights I had in my fog'* and crushed them. There is a good chunk of money down the drain. Currently working on angel eyes, that is why they were out. Anyways, thats is, just frustrating!

You always have worse. I tried changing my oil 2 weeks ago and rounded of the screw for the oil drain because of the wrong socket size.

The angel eyes are worth it, you won't need those xenon bulbs with the Hellas.

Well, after some playing around I will probably save these lights for a little warmer weekend. They are a really tight fit, but allready drilled a pilot hole to test it out, and it does fit nicely, just really snug. I picked some up from a local auto store this morning. I will defenitaly be posting some pics once I get them up.

Yea, really tight fit! I cant even use the stock brackets. They look really cool when they are placed in the fog holder because it is all flush against it, but they dont stick out at all. It is hard to explain, but I will get pics up in a bit. Probably around next weekend'ish.

Yeah i ditched the stock brackets. They woulda fit if i bent the stockers out, but they would have been about 3" too far back. The metal infront of the stock bracket is surprisingly easy to drill into.

I might try again tommarow, but probably take it up to a car bay and use a lift so I dont have to lay on my back all day. The wiring looks pretty simple, it is allready laid out and I just have to connect it to the battery, get a good ground, then run a cable through a grommet in my firewall to my interior for the toggle. Just mounting the lights somewhere is gonna give me a headache, especially if they are off centerd from each other.
