Help with mini d2s and xb led halo

I just used t-taps into the black(ground) wire, and green (power) wire from the dtrl. That keeps them on all the time and with blinker. Use the yellow wire if you want to be able to manually turn them on with dtrl and parking lights. Mine are mounted inside the shroud. You can use epoxy , or drill tiny holes and fish thin garden wire through to tie them in to keep them from possibly falling off, or do both. TRS has some videos on youtube showing how they do it.

I used the black rubber butyl the kind found in your door panel which holds the plastic weather covering on. Works like a charm, and super clean install. Its stuck on there pretty good!

Thanks man!

Yeah I wish I put something back there between the halo and shroud might have to cut the wire and apply some just incase I try to be a prerunner lol I attached the halo and masked them off and sprayed the shroud and the side of the halo all black so it doesn't have the silver showing from the side of the halo or the wire

sorry i've been busy, but problem is i already taped mine up, but this link will help.

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/lig...-retrofit.html

if you have a 2012 model with drl and want to tap into the drl for halo, dont touch the green wire, negative halo wire go to black, positive goes into other color besides black. For parking light tap, positive goes with black and positive goes to color. I think quick splice is what i'm using.

Then I was going to power a relay with the power wire for the headlights and hook up the halos to the 87a terminal (normally closed), that way the halos will automatically go off when my head lights come on.
This is what I have planned for my halos just need to figure out how to wire it never really messed with relays too much

here is a great method
take a piece of copper wire and pull a couple strands out
drill a couple holes and feed the wire around the halo
worked like a hot damn
