Recommended Posts

I just keptted drillin till it fit

And the blue arrows are that i sand abit of them of to sit a bit more flush to the body

And what photo do you need mate

Oh right did you drill all the holes or just the 1 in the middle ? Probarly photo off the back of the light and how it sits inside if possible ? also what screws or washers did you use ?

The red arrow points to the nut that i use for the top

The yellow arrow points at a washer and a nut i use both on the middle 1 to hold it in as iv drill it out to make the light sit back more

& The gray arrow point at a washer this 1 is used 4 the buttom *Only use a washer as i lost 1 of the nuts*

left side: swap wires 1-2

right side: swap wires 4-5, cut the two lugs off connector, turn connector around and plug in so it's technically upside down from original position, should work now.

Did all of you sand down the clips?

I just used a tool to push the wires out and then swap them round. Easy.

Have you got them sitting really flush? I spent ages sanding and cutting bits on one, trying to get it sitting flush, but whatever I did, didn't seem to make any difference! Drove me crazy! Have you any pics showing how they fit and what bits you sanded or chopped?

what tool did u use to push the wires out of the conector? it seems a lot better to do it that way instead of cutting and bodging

If you Crimp the wires and take your time and dont do a pikey job with tape, then there will be nothing wrong.
