Any tips on installing Halos?
Heatgun with a wide flathead screwdriver to open up the headlights. Thats really the only "hard" part. You just need a power source and a ground. I used my cigarette lighter for the power and connected an on/off switch in between and put it on my dash. Run the power fire through the firewall and connect it to all the + on the halos. Connect all the ground wires together and wire them to a bolt on the car. I just used small pieces of double sided tape to hold the halos on. I drilled a small hole in my headlight bezel up at the very top to fit the wires through for the smaller halo. I used a sharpie and made the white wires black. You cant see them. I've had them on my car for about 5 months with no problems.
Which lights are you going to put them around?

Heres a picture of the hole with the wires running through it. For the high beam I didnt have to drill one because theres plenty of space between the bezel and the actually light to run the wires through.

So you didn't bake your headlights?

No. I didnt like the idea of putting my headlight in the oven. Just use a heatgun and go around the seal of the headlight for about 5 minutes to melt the sealant. Then stick the flat head screwdriver in the seam and twist going all around the headlight to pull it apart. Heat it up more as your going if you need to.
