    Angel eyes side light connection

    Hi im new to aoc and this is my first post. recently bought some used fk angel eyes and tried connecting. got everything to work but then realised there are no connectors for the sidelights/rings. It seems that the wire has been cut. So just wondering how do i connect this to the sidelight socket on the car. Its an Astra 52 sri.

    Grey/Red mate, Crimps not the best connector to use i would say a proper waterproof plug and the connections soldered but it's up to you

    From the image which wires should i connect, the black and white wires have connectors at the end, would they plug into sidelight adapter of car? Also would i connect the black and white wires to the grey and black wires of the headlight.
