I took some photo's during the prep of the LED Fog Halo rings :

This is what you get delivered....2 off 80mm LED Rings with LED on a white plastic ring :

First ring painted with Grey Primer (paint both sides to seal it better):

Painting second ring ...(just take your time and not paint the top of the LED itself) :

First ring painted Matt Black :

Both rings finished on LED side painted Matt Black :

Finally on back of the LED Ring.....I desoldered the short wires and soldered longer thicker guage ones .....then paint the connections to seal them :

To connect the RED wires to the Main Headlight Connector you just need 2 off Snap Fit Connectors which splice into the only need one for each side......

Here's my Headlight Connector.......For each side Wire RED to (Left Headlight wire - Gray/Green) and (Right Headlight wire - Gray/Blue)'s the bottom thinnest wire on the Headlight connector :

The Black wire just goes to an Earth Ground Nut on the car chassis ...which there are several to choose from....
