Default Re: Effigy's history

I got my HID conversion kit in the mail today. It's going to require some work.. the cables to the ballast are factory made and only give me about 10" total length..

I eyeballed it, and assuming that I can even fit all the wires/connectors inside the dunebuggy headlight buckets I have, I'll only have maybe 8" to play with to run it into the trunk so the ballast won't be exposed to weather..

I think I'll be able to pull it off, but the connectors will be exposed, so I'll probably buy some 1" heat shrink tubing to cover them up..

Again, this is assuming I can fit HID bulbs and both a male and female pigtail connector INSIDE the headlight bucket..

If not, I'll have to figure out a way to cut the bucket and add a compartment on the back or something..
