LED Daytime Running Lamp Mod / DRL

Here you go for sharing.

Took me about 5 hours to do this mod as I had to determine where to hook up the wires, locate the parking lamp connector, determine which one is parking light positive wire, determine where to route the wires and stow the excess cable slack and play around with the optimum positioning of the DRL.

So I have done all the home work for you guys, I have also created a pdf file so that if you want to do this mod you can just print the file and take it with you when you do this mod.

Here are some photos and attached is DIY file for your own use.

Hope that helps.

Well done. Those LED's are great. They were on my short list before I decided on a similar LED form factor. They look great !
