I didn't take a picture of installing them but I epoxy'd the led ring to the inside of the projector assembly facing the lens. The kit i bought fit pretty good almost like it was meant to be there. I just got hit again and I will be replacing the headlight so this time I will take pictures of the full install.

Just my opinion

I bought these Halos for my Sol.

They are about $20 worth of LED and a $5 box. No connectors, no instructions and to make it even better they dont fit.

I highly recommend that you not buy them.

They look pretty on the bench but they are way overpriced and a science project to get installed.

Rob - Which "Halos" are you referring to in your post?
I saw a link (my yesterday reading to catch up) that TS posted that I'm interested in, It gave me an idea for a vary nice project....
Mark - Can you post that link again, thanks!

theretrofitsource.com (under Accessories) - Rob's halos were from somewhere else, which is why I suggested TRS's as replacements.

The TRS ones we're talking about are the xBaled ones - which are LED-based also. (Besides, would you believe everything you read on eBay? )

I did the halo's about 10 months ago, have worked for about that long, but beginning to notice LED's going out. Life time warranty from the manufacturer, but a pain in the butt to do them again. Will redo the ones I have, but doubt I do the second car with them, even with how much I like them.

yea I was thinking about it since I'm taking the headlight apart anyway. but I want to see if there is a way to setup battery operated ones that I could possibly change out the battery out.. anywho I'll see what I come up with.. There has to be a way to do this with like AA batteries and setup a box where its easy to change out the batteries that way I don't have to mess with the wiring of the actual car and just have a remote or something that turns em on and off. (thinking about halos and demon eyes.) I like the look.

No I did not have this done to my car.
I have other lighting mods that would interfere or distract with the halo's...

The best Halo's that been done for the SKY are the ones Tammy (Fidget) got. If you search I sure you will find pictures of them They were professionally installed, very expensive!!
