the 5mm leds WILL NOT FIT unless you trim the area where they fit. it took me completely tearing the housings apart to perform a 5mm led injection.

that said, you need a 3mm led. this can be purchased on ebay. make sure you get the highest MCD rating you can find.

btw, ALL THIS IS COVERED IN THE ORIGINAL POST

Yeah you have to secure the LEDs but with prewired i have found it take out the need to have to add the resistor as they come prewired with the resistor.

There should be no resistor attached to your current Halo. The ones you were looking at it looks like they COME with them. I am iffy because it doesn't say prewired which would mean the LED and resistor comes all in one like the one i posted.

Refer to the first page



The resistor is already attached to the halo, there is no need for another one!

there are resistors on + and - sides of the halos.

THERE IS NO NEED FOR RESISTORS WHEN PERFORMING THIS MOD
