Thanks in advance
I purchased these from eBay. They were about $35 shipped. I attached them with 4 drops of super glue each (top, bottom, left, right) to the grill. For the wiring I went through the headlight harness. I used the number 4 wire (purple) for the power and the #14 (black with grey stripe) for the ground. This runs it off the same power source as the parking lamps. I will take some daytime pictures later today. Wife and kids have me out for Father's Day right now.

Hey, the halos look great and it's something I have planned for mine soon in the future. I want to get the Boss 302 grille and put them on (like the picture in my avatar). Have you had any problems with them falling off or becoming loose?

I want to do this myself, but don't have any experience with wiring things, you don't have to cut any of the wires do you to wire it up? How'd you hide the wires? You don't need to drill any holes in the grille, right?

Sorry for all the questions lol

-I have these installed on a boss grill. No issues with them falling off, I even took the car through the wash today to see how they would hold up.

-You don't have to cut wires but go to Lowes and purchase some "vampire clamps". See attached picture for reference and part number. If you walk in, go to customer service and ask them where that item is. They will point you in the right direction. You pull it over the wire you want to link into and put the other from the halos in the second slot, push it closed with pliers and voila no wire cutting.

-I wired each light one for one off of the headlight wiring harness. See attached directions for Oracles Halos. The wiring is the same process.

-No drilling of any sort. No tools required. Just yank the grill out, attach the lights, wire it up and snap the grill back into place. I also used wire mesh (Gutter Flashing from lowes. $3 for 10 feet) to fill in the empty space. Look a few posts up to jonyou's close up for reference.

Cool, thanks for the help. Hopefully everything goes well when I do it. I noticed you have your headlights darkened. Are they covers or tint? If tint, what percent? Did they drastically change the light output of your headlights?

Took these today with my s5. No filters, adjustments , or anything like that.
For some people, that translates to #allnatural #nomakeup #nofilter :p

I notice mines have a hint of blue not enough to be notice but still noticed it I wonder if anyone else seeing it? If I put on sun glasses and stare at it up close you can see the tiny bit smd's and some look like they are blue mixed with the white ones

Edit: they say on the eBay description they are 7000k close to 8000k so I guess that's how they achieve the color temp

Thats usually a result of low quality LEDs
Typically with ones that are supposed to be white, they can have a slight blue tint

I purchased wire clamps however that was optional. If you look a few posts up you will see exactly what I am talking about. The halo kit I purchased from ebay (linked in previous posts) had everything necessary except the adhesive or mounting hardware you will need to hold the halos in place.

I used superglue the first time and took it apart last night and went with hot glue...

Mines because they have a plastic housings didn't need anything they are actually held pretty good and not going anywhere but the top flat part of the circle between that and the actual fog light keep it in place.

Only thing I did was hot glue the back of it or silicone could be used but take longer to dry and I did so to make the plastic housings water sealed

So I bought the halos, I have them mounted on my grille at the moment. I connected both halos to the inverter and the inverter has two wires, red and black.

I see you guys tapped into the headlight harness, is that the plug connected to the headlight? Sorry I don't know anything about wiring lol.

You could just use an Add a fuse and and wire the halos to it, that way when you turn the car on, the halos will turn on
Thats why i did with mine

Thanks for the pics. So I got the grille ready with the lights, and the wires from the inverter don't seem they can reach that far to where the headlights are. I might have to take it to a shop so they can do it for me. These are the ones I bought: Angel Eye Halo CCFL 125mm White Rings | eBay

Those are the same ones I have. The wires can be long enough. I mounted my inverters close to the headlights along the main wire bungle that comes out of the headlight light itself using two zip ties per inverter to hold them in place. If you take off the radiator shroud you will be able to see plenty of great areas to pull the wiring through.

If you can't get it worked out let me know and I will take my set up apart tomorrow and take pictures for you.
