    Default Hid's Fitted Today... Ballast Location / Pre Face

    Fitted today, in between fitting footwell and boot lights to my mates vectra...

    Not taken many pics as you've seen one set you've seen them all, But i found a pretty decent location for the ballast's and cancellers if anyone's interested...

    Pic 1, ballast on the Driver side, under where the headlight sits... Very snug fit with a couple of screws...

    Pic 2 is location for cancellers, flipped underneath and 3m'd under where the ballast sits - passenger side pic.

    Everything is neatly out of the way, you cant see anything when look under the bonnet and the bulbs are still easy to get to... And no cuts on my hands either from changing bulbs as i went the whole hog of bumper removal way, 20 times easy and i needed to sort something with my fog's anyway... Pic 3

    Arrow Where I fitted my HID ballast's/canceler's.

    On the drivers side,once I had made sure that the light was working,I refitted the airbox and zip tied the ballast,with the canceler on top of it,to the air box intake ducting.It's been on a week now and when I checked it it's still as solid as a rock.
    On the o/s it was inside the battery holder,which I think everyone uses,(unless they take the bumper off and fit them under the headlight itself).FELIXX.

    Yeah, seen most people stick it in the battery box etc... But my main concern was them being completely hidden, as i'll be doing a lot of under bonnet styling eventually
