59dc45f42d0ec7de1e3d7a11528a2b34.jpg Heck yeah The lights came a day early and I couldn’t resist a little mock-up to see how they look! I’m gonna have to trim the inside hole for perfect fit but it looks like it has real potential. I also ordered some LED strips to add to the halos for DRL Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Next quick step...working on a solution to seal the back of the lights. I decided to utilize the original projector housing which reduces the hole size I need to seal

I then used a step drill bit to open both holes to 7/8 inch

With these open to equal size, I intend to use a couple small sections of hose, one inside another, sealed with RTV that allows the wiring to pass through the smallest hose. High beams thru one, low beams thru the other. Or you could plug one entirely and just use one

Now onward to mounting the LED light to the black inner frame!

A grommet could work on the high beam hole but the projector bucket hole is too deep. But if all the wires could pass out the high beam hole then I could just plug the other one. We shall see!
