Check your wiring again. Make sure the connection where you spliced the wires together is making proper contact. Reference the other working side and make sure they match. What type of connector did you use to splice the wires?

I just picked up a round headlight grill and light to convert from the pick n pull. How much better is the lighting at night with the HID kit? are they way better then the stock square lights?

It's a bulb. Quite like the one in your tail light. Only on steroids.

Has two filaments.

On low, one filament is lit up.

On high, both filaments are lit up.

Your high filament is burnt out on the passenger side.

Lining up how? The round eye grill is pretty much a straight fit. You have to get a little creative to make sure it is held in place nicely on the outside, but everything else is more-or-less perfect.

I got the same headlights. Did you have a hard time getting them to fit in the lock ring? They are thinner than the stock bulb assembly.

okay so, I have my round eye kit, cleaning it up at the moment but question now. I didn't want the original 7" round headlights since they are halogens. I'm looking for 2 7" lights that I can put an 8000k HID BI-xenon kit in that I have here at the house. Anyone know of a set of headlight housings that are simple and cheap? Really can't wait too put this sucker on as soon as I get it cleaned and screw tabs re-fabricated out of steel this time.

Hey Jeremy,
I did the conversion on my (recently wrecked) RS, and am in the process of building my new-to me RS, and was thinking of upgrading to the brighter bulbs when I convert Mr. White.

Are you getting any water in those housings, or is that fine old high desert dust just finding its way in through a small gasket seam?
My main concern is the difference in rainfall between Portland Oregon and the high desert where you're located.

Okay, so question. What do you do with the marker light plugs wiring that plugged into the square headlights? Are they just not used now?

Mine are set off to the side but have toyed with the thought to add a marker lamp on the fender.
