    So i want to stick some HIDs in my 7x6 headlights...I am trying for now to find some cheap projectors that will still actually work right now...But my plan is to turn my corner lights (lights next to headlights) in to my turn signals instead of driving lights (if thats what they are called)...Then i want to switch my current factory turn signals (located on my bumper) into HID FOG LIGHTS!!!!!!.....ehhh preddy coolie right!!!!!

    1. So I i was thinking HIDs into headlights - Simple

    2. Driving lights to turn signals - re-route wiring and bulb then fit into corner light housing (unless you guys know of a better way????)

    3. But for the knew turn signal fog lights i dont really have an idea on how to wire them... so if some one could point me in the right direction of some dudes that have completed some of the mods i am thinking about please let me know!!

    thanks guys i will keep researching tonight.

    sweet i actually found that thread moments ago haha. i was even one of the first to post in the thread :eek: I totally forgot about that.

    That covers everything but how i would put HIDs in my fog lights? I will need to find a way to aim those things too so i dont blind people.

    yeah i am sort of stumped on what to do about the housing...i sort of want to hardwire power from the battery then a switch hooked up to the headlights switch for the fogs....or maybe a stand alone switch i haven't decided yet. i have never messed with headlights before so this is a learning process.
