Welcome and good luck!!!
Hey MC,

Thanks for the great tip & you just use hot glue to hold them in?

Thanks again,
Dave

I used electician tape, black the first time then I ordered silver. I wanted it to be flush withe the body lines if you look close you can see the grey.

Wow, I did not notice that. How 'bout good ol' duct tape?

My bumper is red & I know I have some in red somewhere around here.

Thanks again,
Dave

Duct tape will ruin the finish. Electrician tape wont. That was a big deal to me. Do the black elecrtician and then call around .....somebody sells red elec tape.

I think the halos would look perfect with LEDS... if you made a new halo from LEDs.

Make yourself an array of LEDs and wire up a set of them in a ring to come on for DRL (if you intend to keep DRL), wire the lower half of the array as low beam, and the entire array as high beam.

I love it when an otherwise potentially reputable business confuses the English language so egregiously.

I don't see an angle anywhere on that product that would be worth mentioning... I do see the angel eye lights, though.

Ha ha, I didn't even notice it. However, technically, a circle is always traversing the same "angle" in space. And you *could* add some batteries and use them in an angel costume for halloween. Or, when the cop pulls you over, put it on your head, turn it on, and claim you are innocent. If you make them laugh, sometimes they let you go.
