    An update for everyone who is waiting for BD rock lights. Just talked with Baja on the phone. They received enough housings that they will be able to cover all back ordered units. They are currently building, and anticipate shipping all back ordered units THIS WEEK.

    The black plastic should break. It looks like it's barely hanging on by a thread. You just need to pull.

    Drill the plastic in a wider diameter hole. It will crack/break and just come off.

    There was a post early on somewhere where someone installed amber BDs instead of white. Anyone else go that route?

    Bad pics, but benefit of having friends in the motorsports wiring industry, they go full OCD on making it look good.

    Super clean!
    I’d love to provide them wired, but everyone will wire a different color/configuration so I leave it up to the customer. Did you get the Orin’s seal included, or it’s just removed in the pic ?
