they have terminals on the end of the wires, I just wraped electrical tape around the terminals and the wires for the sake of it.


Can I suggest, that next time you plan some wiring work. That you use Heat Shrink instead of Electrical tape. You'll get a neater more robust job, and all you need is a heatgun or lighter.

I have started my Install, I have made up the control units.
Thought this would be the appropriate place to post it rather than start yet another thread on this subject.

Hi all, without tryin to highjack the thread, can someone tell me where the best place to get the cornering lamps from?.
I've seen them on ebay (new) for $230 a pair, not sure if this is a good price or not. :?:

Buy a inline fuse holder (blade type is best) splice it into the wire leading from the battery.

Something like these

Yes, this is a very good question. I would like to know the answer too. In a factory fitment the lights are only active while the indicator is on and not running costantly. Being the lense is only polycarbonate, are they at any risk of melting? I know the globe in it is only low wattage (H5-is that right?) but is it enough to be able to do damage to the lense?

tilli lind
pm me and ill send you inline fuse holder (2nd type ) and some heatshrink free
im a wurth rep and we sell all that stuff

also if you retrofit the globes with led type bulbs these donot create heat
so melting shoud not be a problem but im not sure if the brigtness from the led bulbs will cause a yellowing effect on the polycarbonite


ps the springs i got off you BLOODY AWSOME
especilly with shortened boge shockies
