This odyssey started 22 months ago, and finally finished today.

My SINCERE thanks to:

Dartboy. Chris, without your home, your stove, your work...the rings never would have made it into the housings.

LilJoeJoe: Joey, you helped lay the groundwork on the wiring with a regulator that is truly a one of a kind in the world...never been done.

PLCMAN: Raymond, without your regulator and electronics genius, the whole damn thing wouldn't have ever worked.

DAHNIC: DIallo, my friend...you've been in this with me since day 1. Who has a better buddy than me, someone that would drive all the way out from Ohio, for 1 day, just to help me try to finish these things?

Mr. Norms Garage: Tim and Andy, for finishing the whole deal up and making this Frankenstein monster of a project come to life. Thanks, all of you!

Yeah, pretty much.

And now on to the "easier" lighting ideas, Joey: grille & dash lighting.

Dave, I'm glad they are FINALLY running the way they should be! They look spectacular!!
I'm sorry we couldn't get them up and running last year but I'd come out there again to help if needed.
Now go get the damn car tuned and tear up some streets!!!

nice dave! good to hear your hell is over.

i just ended my own kinda halo hell myself. when i first installed mine a couple years ago i bought 2 different epoxy's for the rings. a clear plastic one and a gunmetal color all purpose one. i tried the gun metal one first on the passenger side headlight because i thought it would look better if you saw any of the epoxy. well that gunmetal one took forever to set for some reason so i used the plastic epoxy on the driver side headlight. no big deal right? well it was a big deal. turns out a year later i find out that gunmetal color epoxy was metallic based and it bridged the resistors on the back of the rings. this resulted in the resistors going bad on that headlight. my driver side headlight halos have never had a problem the two years i have had halos since i used the plastic based epoxy on the rings in that light. lesson learned.

so just got my last replacement ring in from flashtech and put it in today with plastic based epoxy. everything is back to 100% and i shouldn't have a problem again.

so i have had one or two setbacks with the halos, but i don't ever see not having them on the car. they are worth it.

Huh...I didn't know it, but someone caught audio of my phone call trying to get these halos done at some point...





And video of me after they were installed...

I am glad you got this wired, they look real good you should see no heating at all, from the halo's. The regulator is a PWM based unit capable of well over 15 amps! The frequency pot can make them stobe to the point you can't look at them. This setup he has is custom and this wasn't an easy wiring task at all, good luck with them.

Now if anyone needs a bullet proof regulator with 2 outputs capable of 15 amps per output let me know.

We'll have to talk about the strobe setup...that one isn't even wired up yet. Even more fun courtesy of Raymond! I'm running 3 switches: mains, fogs, and master override for show lighting when the car is turned off.

BTW, Andy from Mr. Norms ended up mounting the box under the carpeting in the trunk, left hand side. Nice and ventilated form the rear wheel well vents (now that my resonators are gone).
