New mod DAE but have questions

I just installed my DAE tonight and wired it to my fog lights. But I have few questions. The light box near my windshield fluid, will that get to hot that it might melt the container? Also since I have daytime running lights activated, should I have them turn off or just wired it different so that I can show just the rings? If anyone have any recommendation please let me know.
TIA.....

Ps. Thanks Dollar99 and Herb... I love it

The materials used for your windshield reservoir and most of the other parts have no issues with ANY heat that is produced from the lightboxes of either kit.

There is nothing to worry about.

Remember, that when you DRIVE, the air stream going through your engine WILL help cool the boxes as well.

umnitza thanks for the info on the heat issue... Since I just got this on, didn't really get a chance to run it long so wasn't sure how much heat it gave off.

mfspolo... Thanks

Brendan I see you wrote its a joke under the sig Its no joke

Ps. I know DRL :sad:
