    Cool angel eye fitting

    not sure if this is the correct place to post this but here goes.
    i have a set of angel eye headlights.
    it says i have to wire both rings into the sidelight circuit.
    what would be the best place to connect them and how would u do it?
    also how do i take my speedo unit apart so i can remove the orange filter he milage?
    or wont it matter as im gonna fit a red led buld there?

    Angel eyes should be plug and play so you just unplug all your old headlight and plug the new one in with no extra connections to the side light circuit needed

    I used some scotch locks on the sidelight wiring for the angel eyes. That way the standard wiring is still intact on the car.

    I guess they have side lights and halo's seperate then. Just join the halo's onto the connectors that go to the grey/red on one side and grey/black on the other. There will be a brown in both connectors for the earth

    I'd do it at each light so it's 2 onto 1, the lights must have seperate side lights after all. No need to add fuses and soldering is the only way to do this sort of connection

    so just trim a small bit of the side light wireing cover away and then solder a poss n neg wire onto each cabe n rap it in tape to keep water out.
    then join the single wire onto the two sets of wire comming from the lights n heatshrink n tape that up.
    does sound ok?
