    Having trouble uploading pics so I will add them in tomorrow

    So I ordered a set of the automat central 7 inch fog lights! I decided that I will do the first review on these things that have a HID conversion. Doing the HID conversion was fairly simple so it will be part of the review.

    First off, packaging and shipping was secure and quick! All components required to do the install are included, and with a couple extra steps, you can do a conversion to make these SUPER BRIGHT!

    First open the headlight by locating the screws on the side of the housing.

    Bend forward the tab which is holding the clip down. Pull the bulb out and put an HID bulb in. In my experience, the H3 bulbs are short so I opted for a slightly larger bulb, a 9006 HID bulb, turns out that the bulbs are a perfect fit and cover up the bulb opening completely.

    Bend the wire back down and check the alignment of the bulb

    Drill a hole in the plastic outer housing, seal it up with silicone and you are good to go!

    Edit(9/21/11)-added last nights pictures:D

    So here are the pictures of the HID converted lights mounted up on my truck! Amazingly bright and real decent beam pattern! These lights are the best bang for the buck option! For $50(lights)+$30(HID kit of your choice)+one hour of fitting, you can have an HID converted fog light! Definitely brighter than my friend's internal ballast fog lights which he paid over $100 a piece for! Contact Automatcentral and get your lights today! It comes with a free hat lol
