Duluth, ga members help?

Hey guys, I was just wondering if there are any fanatics who reside in duluth, preferably near Berkeley lake? I just got my angel eyes but i have no idea how to install them. I have looked at the DIY guides for hours and i just cant make sense of it all; I guess im just not a diy kind of guy. . So i was wondering if someone could help me out? I will be willing to pay or reach some kind of agreement.

it wouldnt be bad to make a new friend either lol
the local shops were rude and had no idea how or what the AEs were so i gave up on professional install.

im sure you can do it

basically the idea is to get power running to your angel eyes, the wiring is quite simple. It draws power from the power source in the engine bay, by the "drug bin". Triggers are wired to the ECU and the footwell lighting if you so please (these turn the angel eyes on when charge is detected to either the footwell lighting or the wire you hook it to in the ECU). Then the wires are just connected to the angel eyes. For that part of the install, the headlight lenses need to be removed which is easy enough as long as you don't have a facelift coupe, and the wires just need to be routed from inside the headlight to the engine bay.

I've installed AE's on a few cars.. I can't say I'm completely confident on the procedure though. I haven't yet got it wrong.. but I've installed them on my car before (they're off now) and a few friend's cars. I can also direct you towards Eurowerkz here in Atlanta. They will do it. I don't have their # on hand, but there are tons of guys on this forum who are apart of the "EUROWERKZ" team and can provide it for you
