    Fitting HID to Depo/FK angel eyes

    Hi,

    I just received my new headlights, and I was wondering if any of you guys have fitted them to Depo/FK lights.
    All the wires come fitted in the lights, which wont go into the HID bulbs, so did you just cut a hole in the back of the dust cover for them?

    I made a neat hole int he dust cover in my first set, my second set i modified the rubber bung in the light so that it came out with the rest of the wires, however you do it will be fine, as long as its still pretty sealed

    yeah, i was thining of making a hole just big enough to fit the center section of the rubber bung in, so it seals either side

    I drilled a hols in the plastic as the HID bulbs have rubber grommets.

    cut out the rubber seal from the headlights, then pushed the rubber seal from the bulb into the gap

    I took the wires out the bottom of the rubber cover using a bit of tape to secure them. This way the rubber didn;t need cutting where it would let water in
