Default Angle eyes, set up?? -check-

Ok, so i will post my lengthy journey of Fixing my lovely bike, but i'm not quite finnished
i'm on the final stage, cosmetics. I'm installing a lovely pair of Angel eyes (thanks ebay!)

PROBLEM, I HAVE LITTLE IDEA OF HOW TO FIT THIS PEACES TOGETHER?

so here are all the components i have been given.


The Angel eyes (blue) - two of these beauties



resistor/ transformer i think - two of those thingies



this lovely piece of wire, hmmmm



Switch, which i have to put into the circuit. :P


and finally two of these thingies, for connecting to the almighty power supply :P



oh and this, ??? Its seven pages long, but it assumes I'm an electrician, i'm not.






If anyone could sketch up a way of putting this all together, i'll reward you all with my how to, and some lovely photes of me on her , in my red-bull leathers (my fav drink :P)





**ebay and red bull owe me big time :P

good luck man - yeah i did my angel eyes (fabricated them myself) but very tricky to mount in headlights. you actually have to bake your headlight assembly kit in a Oven (yes, a oven) to loosen the insane epoxy glue (or cerement) to take apart and get into the headlights.

just a little tip, DONT get anything on the inside of the headlight glass - it will become permanent (trust me, it happened to me). take your time and have fun.

It's been awhile since i've done the angel eyes, so forgive me if i am alittle rusty. When creating your own, it's take times and some patience (i believe i made 6-8 sets of rings before I started to pick the ones I liked).

This project will take alot of research, but you get to make a custom accent that no one will have.

(this is all reading reference and idea sparking)

You can pick up the rods at a local home depot or lowes, also you need to get some resistors (I'm sorry, forgot how strong I used - i just picked up a few sets from fry's and tested LED's to see how bright I could get it without blowing a LED)

remember to buy extra LED's, Resistors, and mini rods (you will screw up)

Heres mine finished, i sorta referenced the video posted above for this!
couple things i found:

When you cut the difraction lines in the rod, put alot of them, close together, and make sure that you do not cut them deep, and if you can, start cutting them 3/4" away from the led, if you start too close they absorb too much light and you have a weak spot in the center of the ring.

Baking the headlight is no big deal, preheat the oven to 300, i put mine in for about 4 minutes, took it out and the glue was more than soft enough to pull apart. To put it back together, i left the factory glue inplace, i didnt clean it up. i put the to halves ontop of each other and went around teh whole light with a heat gun while pressing down on the lens. once the glue warmed the two pieces pressed together nicely.

other than that its pretty easy.
I only did one ring because the 929 has a triple headlight, and 2 just looked stupid.
