Anyways, thanks for checking my thread out and hope you all enjoyed the write up and feel free to ask any questions you'd like or throw out any tips on what you think could/would've been better!
Hey Deadserial, thanks for the photos and info - it is very helpful. I am considering an attempt at replacing the LED bars with some switchback LED strips like the following:
Since you opened things up and have electrical knowledge, can you help me with details on how the wiring is set up for the LED bar and blinker in the Eagle Eye headlights? Do you think it would be a straightforward swap going from the LED bars to the LED strips, with the extra connection (wiretap) going to the turn signal power for the switchback 12v input? I would like to keep everything internal to the light and use existing wiring as much as possible.
Do you happen to have any close up photos of the internal wiring from the disassembly?
Also, if you were to do the HID retrofit again what HID ballast/lenses would you buy? Any good ones you would recommend that are cheap but close to OEM or better?
