For some light fixtures you will have to drill a hole just big enough to slide the LED through and then silicone everything around the LED so you won't get any moisture in your headlights or fogs...You need to find a place inside of your headlight and fogs where the LED can not be seen....and for maximum "glow" you need to aim the LED or LEDs towards the reflector around your bulbs....Hope this helps and makes sense....

Here is a picture and a couple videos of mine....

Yeah, that makes sense. I guess we'll have to do some experimenting with locations in the headlight for the bast look. Thanks for the help. Btw, I f-in love your whole set-up. It's amazing.

The biggest thing is with the placement of the LED....always remember you should be able to see the glow and not the source...just experiment and one drill once...trust me you will be happier....

Check out the white car in the pics I just added. He just put 1 superflux in each headlight and fog light. That will give you a good idea on the brightness.

On jdusty's its hard to judge brightness since he actually has 3 (different) colored LED's in each headlight.
