Where do you guys mount your ballast/igniters?

More for the facelift guys....I just installed some xenons in my previous halogen headlights (Thanks JLevi), but wanted to see where everyone mounts their ballast/igniters.....

Also anyone else experience the lights flickering for a few seconds when your headlights first come on?

I installed P46s and I bought some brackets at homedepot. I then used double sided tape to secure the ballasts with the ignitors and wrapped them with a ziptie. Once the ballast and igniter were securely fastened together I ziptied them to the bracket that I screwed to the P46s. The bracket looked like this. I hope this helps
