Reverse light HIDs

I've had this kit for months, finally decided to install it.

I was waiting for something that I designed with a buddy of mine...but since he's the one making it and he's M.I.A I went ahead and installed them as they come.

You need to either glue or epoxy them in.

I bought the kit from DaBears and they include a small tube of super glue to use.

Here's the ballast mounted with double sided tape:



HID driver's side vs. halogen passenger's side:



Both sides in:


Note: the capsule in the passenger's side is from DaBears it's a 5000k.
The capsule on the the driver's side is an extra 5000k I had out of a POS ebay kit.
I would have used the other ebay capsule on the passenger's side...but as I mentioned it's a POS and that capsule does not work.
And my other capsule from DaBears is in my buddy's possession for R&D, but since I wanted to get it in tonight I mixed and matched
So they are slightly different colors even though they are both listed as 5000k.



With the way I wired my LED tails I can easily swap back to halogen bulbs if I have any issues.

Re: Reverse light HIDs

Very nice! And if you are speaking about Jason as your buddy, he's here now.

I believe he was speaking about you and him doing something with these kits.

Popped into my head since I've had people asking me about his rear fog harness a lot lately.

And yeah, the PM that I got from you was magically gone. Luckily I have it setup for email notifications and found it in my email to get the web addy
