    My retrofits should be arriving this week from eledobleu. I searched this site, but did not see any instructions or write-ups of how to install and do all the wiring. For those of you that already did the install, can you provide instructions, tips, etc?

    Thanks.

    Do you have to tap into a fuse or to the battery?

    image.jpg It's really easy @eledobleu was great! walked me thru all the steps and was easier than what I thought. But I forgot to take pictures while I was installing them :facepalm:
    Too excited I guess lol. But I do remember how it all went together. If want to see more pics check out my build.

    Nice.. pretty much the same look I'm going for. Did you get the switchback and going to delete the factory amber DRL?

    So the sheer size of the headlight and projector shroud is the first thing I noticed.
    Second thing is that there are many wires coming out the back. Hopefully, when I take the headlights off this weekend, it will be more clear to me.

    One question is that there is a wire with a what looks like a fuse tap. Where does this go?

    So you kept your factory amber DRLs then, right? Do your white LEDs also switchback when you use your blinker?
