shoulda spent the extra dough... since this is a HID thing, does it bug your radio out when you turn your headlights on?

if im listening to my ipod on my kenwood deck and turn the lights on it stops the music and i have to unplug then re-plug in the ipod... but then it works fine, and i can run with my headlights and amp and tunes blasting even at an idle for a while with no problems...

You have your kit wired backwards, switch the hi/low wires.

this shows the drivers side setup a little better. the ballast is double-side taped behind the headlight hole thing. i really have to loom everything up better asap :x the ground point for this ballast is the factory body ground, right off the negative battery cable. then the harness runs up in front of the radiator, ziptied to the factory harness...

...and back thru the other side. this is the best picture of the passenger side i could get, damn airbox. but you can see how the ballast is mounted right in front of the airbox. this ground point is the plate that bolts to the inner fender to support the airbox. i had to sand it down a bit for a good connection.

i hope this helps! all i had to do was to unbolt the top radiator mounts, and the airbox support. soon i hope to reloom everything even cleaner.
anything else, feel free to ask!
