    Re: How to install halos or paint headlight bezels pics

    I am doing this project right now:



    I have the adaptive headlights, though, so my outer ring cannot be attached directly around the HID eyeball, but the bezel instead. I also wanted complete rings; not horseshoes. I looked around and found Umnitza Orion Lite LED Halos (120mm outer; 106mm inner). The inners fit exactly inside the high beam pocket, and the outers fit precisely along the low beam bezel lip. I have tested them; they're quite bright, and look great! I got some LEDs to replace the incandescent side marker bulbs, so we'll see what happens when it's all put together.

    I'm getting ready to paint my long-term RRS S/C to Overfinch DIY project. It's been an incredibly arduous process to get this kit to fit like factory, but it looks fantastic. I'll update that thread soon.

    Re: How to install halos or paint headlight bezels pics

    Has anyone tried this on a 2010+ model year? I can't get the two pieces apart. The plastic is soft enough to nick up pretty bad but they aren't spreading apart at all.

    EDIT: I am pretty sure that the 2010+ headlights won't come apart as easily. The glue must be different. On the bottom of the housing, there is some glue that is visible. The oven at 250 doesn't even phase it! It's still just as hard.

    Huh! I didn't see that problem coming, SLO. I wouldn't have expected the sealant material to be tangibly different. Anyone else have input on separating the 2010+ headlight assembly?

    Re: How to install halos or paint headlight bezels pics

    I wish I had searched for this yesterday. Great write up. We were wondering why we were not getting ANY power to the parking lights when wired up. We never thought of trying to connect the red to the black and vice versa. Never even crossed our minds. After we gave up trying to figure out what the problem was, we just hooked it up to the fog lights as a temporary solution. (no fog lights at the moment.) Now I get to get dirty again and try reversing the wiring. Does anyone know why they would reverse the wire colours?

    Thanks for the awesome write up and pics!

    Yep - it is goofy. Since LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, it only allows power to flow in one direction (and won't light up in the other). Took me a bit to figure out what the heck was going on as well, since they used the correct color wire, but didn't put them on the right side.

    They probably did it on purpose to screw with us. Evil, just evil I say.

    As side note: Up here in the great white north.. we spell "color", colour. We love our "u"'s.

    Nice RJ, I can work with those, even though they have 12 and the 2010 has like 6 leds, where did you get them from and will they work on the little light?
