Re: GB: WK Halos will be here soon......no BS

Here is a little write up for everyone on how I did it.

After your lights are apart and either before or after painting them. Tape off where you will be drilling your lights for the halo power wires to fit through.


Test fit them and mark where the leads will go through at.



Drill the holes with the blue tape still on so you don't mess the finish.


Test fit them to make sure they align where you want them to sit at.


Apply 3M automotive adhesive tape to the back of the Halo.


BE CAREFUL ON THIS STEP...you have 1 shot at it...once it's stuck it's there FOREVER! Now fish the leads through and align the Halo's where you want and stick them.


Repeat and you have this.


Now you just need seal up the headlights, Black silicone adhesive works well, wire them up and install. I haven't got that far yet will post more when I do.

And here is a teaser pic of the XRT8 Punisher. I still have to get my RamMedic hood (should be this or next week), install the Halos and rims and tires, the winter ones are on it right now.



Enjoy,
Escape

Re: GB: WK Halos will be here soon......no BS

I'll soon have a full wiring write up with pics on the wiring too.

I wired mine into the parking lights without cutting any of the factory wiring! To deactivate the 3157 parking lights simply remove one of the inner contact wires on the light bulb (inside ones are the parking, outside ones are the blinker). Wired the activation lead into the factory relay for the parking lights, no need for the ground (Lead #16) as I'm alread using a full factory circuit.

Here are some pics of my 10,000K Halo's:
Halo's Off-




Halo's On...Currently running 10v I think I'm going to turn them down a bit, they are very bright!





These are just the halo's and fogs, as you can see they are very bright indeed! I need to get some sylvania silverstar's for the fogs, lows and highs so they all match.
