HID lights - where to mount ballasts?
I'm rebuilding one of my HID headlights at the moment. I've never been happy with the ballast mounting scheme I have - double-sided 3M super-sticky-probably-made-from-Happy-Fun-Ball-taped to the underside of the hood.
Where have y'all mounted the ballasts? I have the Morimoto XB55 kit. The ballast boxes are roughly 4" x 3" x 0.5". The ground wire from the harness is pretty short which limits my options unless I want to extend the harness. I'm fine with doing that if necessary but, if anyone else has a good solution that doesn't involve a bunch of wires taped to the bottom of the hood going everywhere, I'd love to see it.
