Hey Guys and Gals,

I have been searching the forums for a thread like this. I couldn’t find one so I created this one.

I am very interested in getting HIDs but I would have no clue as to where to place the ballast. For those of you who have HIDs would you mind taking a picture and post it on here so that other and I can have a clue as to where we can put the ballast.

Very appreciated,

xBam

right ballast placement:


so basically, from surfMOMster & CrewMaxter (including me), you want to place your ballasts away from an area where you will get a lot of heat. why? your ballasts also heats up when on. too much heat, the ballasts implodes.

Installed 7 months ago. It's rusting. Gotta spray it with something before it gets worse.

This is the same area, where I placed my ballasts. As far away from the engine (heat), as possible.

tricky thing with HID, from what i have noticed, in certain angles color varies. 10K in general is brilliant blue. however, sometimes, my 10K shows a slight purple accent. maybe yours will do so as well with observation.
