well i've had the sockets and wiring for about a month but have been to busy/lazy to install these... but i decided since I had the day off today that I would dedicate it to finally installing my city lights... started off by going down to Jotech and picking up a set of Raybrig 168 bulbs... using my trusty dremel i started by drilling a whole in the center of the socket area of the headlight



then i drilled a little more, through the reflective part of the housing, so i can get a start on the other side





then i used the little attachment to drill out the little holes for the little parts on the side of the socket that hold it in place



here's the backing with the socket and bulb in place



here's with the headlight reassembled



daylight pics
nothing on



corners and city lights on



headlights on (notice city lights off, thx one6 ;) )



nighttime pics












the pics don't do them justice... they are so clear in the housing, they look amazing >` ... im so proud of myself :lol:

that looks awesome, now when you say you wired the ground the the headlight did you wire it to the actually power wire for the headlight or the ground wire for the head light?
