So the instructions aren't the best! I assume I connect the angel eyes to the inverters which in turn connect to the positive battery terminal and ground nut under the bonnet? Do I then slide the sleeves over the join? It says to heat shrink them, cigarette lighter?!

Me personally would tape it, alot don't like to use tape, but if u need to disconnect it could be a pain heatshrinking they do obv say it for water ingress but if alternative methods available they should be ok.

Hi Jim, I got them from the car mod shop, I think they have an eBay site too. Just realised that they don't connect to battery as they should be connected to side lights! I know I need to remove the side light bulbs but how do I connect the wires to the side light connectors?
