I'm talking about the whole headlight assembly. My SVT has regular headlights, it doesn't have what I would call the pop can units. I guess that is what you called the machs? Do you sell the whole assembly or what would be the proper name for those when I look around?

Thanks!

Heres the pics I told you I would get for ya Tetra

This is where I tied the wire that connects both ballasts to eachother.


This was where I mounted the Passenger side Ballast and I also ziptied it to a hose for extra security so just incase the double sided tape failed me the ballast would not fall inbetween the pulleys.


Thats the fuse box that connects to the battery so it was a very tight snug but it sits fine there.


And this is where I mounted the Driver side Ballast. I dont know what kind of intake you got. but if you have the stock airbox you'll probably have to mount it somewhere else.

i dont know if you are refering to the wiring that goes from the engine to the headlight, if it is what you are talking about, then the wiring is the same,

bulbs are different, st170s use h7 for low beam and machs use d2s for low beams although the machs do use h7 but for high beam.


rear caps, you mean de covers?, they are different, but what are you planning?

I found a set of machs out of germany and the ad stated purchaser would have to add stock bulbs, wiring and balast, I'm assuming the balast would be the rear cap or cover. The lights are made by Depo. What do you think?

Thanks,
Kirk
