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 wires.....you only need one for each side......
Here's my Headlight Connector.......For each side Wire RED to
(Left Headlight wire - Gray/Green)
(Right Headlight wire - Gray/Blue)
....it'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....
