Hid Kit Done...

10 December 2014 - 07:34 AM

So my package arrived from the other side of the country, and can highly recommend them if you ever doing the HID kit in SA, they're called violet electronics and they really helped me even by saving me a few bucks. So I took the plunge and bought the 35w H7 (Non-canbus - Fiesta's don't need the canbus) 6000k HID kit from Violet's, everything was as they said just plug and play, the hardest part of the install was removing the overly massive lights and the dredded clip that hold the H7 globe in place, this part has too be modified for it too work on the HID globe, see pic below
 
As can be seen below the only way for the HID globes to work with the old clip is to cut a piece out for the globe with wires to slide in
H7 light bracket
 
The pic below shows the clip with the original H7 globe in place
HID
 
The other small change that was made was cutting a small hole in the rubber seal for the wires to feed through, mine is about a centimeter in diameter and works perfectly once the gromet plug is in place to seal the hole everything should be waterproof.
 
Before
Pre-HID
 
After

Left is HID, right is standard, ps. if you can't see the difference have your eyes checked

Both HID

Both HID

 

Hope this helps a bit, remember the HID kits works best with Projector lights

 

Now too change that damn courtasy light, looks all yellow with the HID and the silver visions

Spiderman's Prank

01 December 2014 - 12:44 PM

I have a spider problem, one that I can't get rid of, about 3 weeks ago a spider made his new home inside my right mirror, I have tried everything I can think of, even the high pressure hose, but a day later spidermans back with his web covering the mirror, only thing I can think of is taking the mirror apart and searching for the little bugger, any advice before I dismantle my mirror? tried to take some pics, but the phone just wants to focus on my reflection.

Fixing Front Wing

10 November 2014 - 02:24 PM

After running around town on a lazy saturday after a big night out I wasn't concentrating when I parked to close too the curb and so the front black winglet came off the body kit, I was wondering how long this will last, luckily it happend at a snails pace and I just picked it up, I do have some proper Aluminium rivets that I will use too fix it, but the standard plastic rivets looks as if it was made to be broken. I'm surprized they lasted this long, almost all of the second hand cars I see have theirs missing, anyone else have this same problem? and a better way of fixing it back on?
