    Chappies.

    I have decided i would like to make my four angle rings into two angel rings (the two inner ones).

    I dont have LEDs but CCFLs. Above each ring there is two wires entering the headlight unit. If i cut the wires leading down to the outside ring of the unit, and join them up again, do you think the unit will not recognise a change and just carry on as usual.......just with two angel eyes showing instead of four?

    just cut the wire going to the rings you don't want Oh and makes sure you tape up the wires coming off the invertor cause if they left exposed it may do something unexpected...In fact just do what the poster below me has said

    Oh right........i didnt actually realise the wires could be disconnected.

    In that case i'll give it a bash and photo the results.

    Cheers guys.
