I'm thinking about adding these to my SS to help compliment the car a little more. Also since the taillights have red angel eyes around them standard, I thought it would look cool to have the headlights like that also. How do you install these? Where do you install them? Like against the headlight itself.. or on the clear plastic cover, or what?

I'm not even sure if they would fit my headlight.

I stole this from the item description:

To install, you must take remove the headlamp assembly from the car. This involves removing the front bumper. Then bake the headlamp assembly in the oven to loosen the glue. You can then pull off the front clear plastic cover from the rest of the assembly. Glue the CCFL rings inside the headlamp, route the wires out the back and to the transformer. Then run the transformer's power and ground wires to your power source. You should probably put a switch on it so you can turn it on and off.

Also, what temp and timer should I set on the oven icon_smile.gif

This is a link on the description page. The tutorial is for a Scion TC, but hopefully you can reason out some stuff from it. As for glue, I would use silicone sealant to keep the moisture out and the tutorial says the temp should be 225F.

Not all are...

If you're worried get a spare set from a junkyard - look for a car that was totaled in a rear impact and scavenge the headlights. That way, if you hork them up, it hurts nothing, plus you can work on them and drive the car at the same time.

Just be thankful your headlights aren't custom Xenon projectors that were only made for 2 model years - mine cost about $500 apeice to replace and used spares are as scarce as a virgin at Mardi Gras...

Unless you own a pretty expensive car; BMW, Mercedes, S2000, or the not-so expensive TL/TSX then you probably will have to retrofit your own. Even then you'll probably use a projector out of the above list. Those eBay projectors are cheapo halogen projectors. I say if you're going projector go HID.

Well, OK, that IS true... Good point. I still think that CCFL rings in THESE housings would be awesome though...

At almost $500 a screw-up, I think I'll wait, thanks. Many have baked them open so it's more-or-less a known science, but I'll still wait for a set of replacement units to show up at a salvage yard. icon_smile.gif
