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 :D
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.

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

Na, a local buddy of mine.

Jason knows what I'm doing though and has seen my "rough drafts", LOL.....I emailed him about this site yesterday as I didn't know if he was here or not :thumbsup:

Thanks Dan for sending him over.


I pm'd him on the red site but it seems that the admins over there were onto me and deleted my pm's. LOL

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 :D
