      Icy,
      1st - they are going to look awesome on that car.
      2nd - what do you mean by light loom? the harness?

      I don't have personal experience with it all yet, but I'm going to assume it's the same as e-codes.
      At least, it looks that way. I know the "light fixtures" do come apart from the housings via 3 screw-looking things that come undone.

      I'm sure someone who has more 1st hand experience with it will chime in.

      I may sell the dual rounds that are on my car. They are an absolutely mint set of clear Hella's if anyone is interested?

      No broken tabs, adjusters, nothing rusted, etc

      can i buy the bolts stickin out the back of the cibies on abts? snapped one when removing the plugs to get the lights off the casing so when i rebuild one will be loose

      If you're talking about one of the three studs that are
      Part of the back of the actual cibie reflector, no you can't get those individually, you could try reattaching it somehow, or find another used light, or you can buy them new but one is around 130 to 150.

      Hey guys I was wondering if someone (preferably with voted dual rounds, but I guess any will do) had any up close pics of the mounting. I got mine in, and have the ecode brackets, I just feel like they're not just right because they don't line up with the fenders well and I feel like if I close my hood hard I could damage them..don't worry, summer wheels going on tomorrow and is going lower lol

      I think they look pretty decent anyway!

      hmm never heard of them, just purchased a pair of them! Lol, thought they were unusual and awesome because I couldn't find anything like them. I guess I'm a sucker for rare/unusual things.
