how much more control do you need? When the lights are you, you can't see angel eyes anyways. When the lights are off, just turn parking lights on and there you have it. Don't want the angel eyes, then don't turn your parking lights on. You have all the control you need if you connect them to the parking lights.

its done... 3 days worth of work... putting the headlights back into the oven 10 times... losing 1 10mm socket on the last installation of the last headlight screw... its done... also my ground wires came in... put those in during angel rings installation

with the switch u can turn it on and off... doesnt take very long to put some switch in... on my leganza it seems like some lexus is300 at night... the angel rings r on the high beams but the switchs seperate so u can turn the rings on and off without turning on any other lights... had to cut then smallen the rings to fit then replace the white bulbs instead of the blue LEDs on the rings

the way the car is now at nights so sweet... wish there was some cam on me

Which Ones?

Postby chriz_woo » Sat May 27, 2006 3:09 pm

Hey All.

I am new to the site and this is my first post.

I was wondering if you just put the CCFL tube on the light or you replaced the globes with the Angel Eye Kit.

If so, what globes did you use??

Cheers.

ebay
heres a link

if you do decide to do this mod it will come with four angel eyes you will need to cut off two of them but not the ones that are connected to a little resistor chip. if you cut those then you're screwed unless you try to reconnect them.

i think you can get them at pepboys. and you have to put the lights in the oven to seperate the lights from the backing of it so you can put the lights in and/or paint them. basically it softens the silicone sealing so you can take it apart.

So when you finish installing the angel eyes and painting, you should put the head lights in the oven again so you could seal them again??
