Re: DIY: Audi-Style FL/2 Headlights

hey trick i ran into a problem setting up the lights..first the lights i got (from auto zone) said they were 24 inches but they were really 12 a piece..second problem i faced was when taping them to the lights i had a hard time judging exactly where you put them on your headlight underneath(like how close they were to the lip) and the third was the lights did not shine the same since the lights shined down and not out, FAIL..could you help me out with which ones you bought because i swear you have the same ones i bought. thanks

i know they we're short. It sucks. Autozone Blows....Oznium.com has better ones.

Second, i put then about 1/8th of an inch away from the edge.

Third, did you boost the Headlight up with the Washer?

i didnt mind the length cause i figured 2 feet was too long but i went onto oznium and there was a couple bad reviews. i didnt get to putting them onto the car because when i taped it to the headlight before i even spliced it to the drl's..but when i was testing on where to place the lights i noticed that you cant really notice the lights cause theyre aiming to the ground and not out towards you, were the LEDs like that for you or did you get a different brand/ type led strips..i thought maybe you angled the LEDs so they would shine out

they are simple Side-Emiting LED strips. Nothing more...you must've bought the wrong ones

Re: DIY: Audi-Style FL/2 Headlights

ok, so this was a great tutorial minus 2 things for my car.

I had 10mm bolts/ not 8mm

And the positive/negative wires were opposite the way your trick was supposed to figure it out. Other than that great job and i will put a pic up when im done in about 20 mins. Reversing the last wires now.
