HID Safety Question

Hey guys,

Just installed my HIDs, and due to limited space in that area, ive put the HID warning like cancelor inside the headlight housing.
Are there any safety issues in doing this?

Also, once again, due to limited spacing to install and mount the ballast,
I have installed the driver side ballast just on top of the headlight housing.
This is somewhat near to the washer fluid compartment which I have realised to warm up a bit after driving.

Does this raise safety issues?

you can use double surface adhesive tape to put the ballest at the water tank, another ballest can put at the surpension top. warning cancellor is light weight, just tie up by cable tie with the remaining wiring.

that's fine. i'd take the warning canceller inside the headlight and find another place for that though.
