You can just put electrical tape on the contacts on the back of the bulb to test it out. Or you could leave them like that (what I did)

I like being able to turn mine off, since i have blue lights, orange corners, and yellow fogs, its a bit of a color rainbow with the city lights on

looks good CJ, now when you get DEPO's you'll already have 194 bulbs lol

I actually was thinking about doing this, but I'll probably just run a generic switch next to the dimmer.
