FashTek HID Question

I just received the Fashtek HID kit that was 75.00 delivered per the group buy deal. Question is I ordered the H7 4300? I hope this is for the low beam?
Can anyone tell me if that is so? Also I received no paperwork or instructions.
Is there a link someone can point me to on installation.

Thanks

Thanks. Looks like I will be installing today. From the instructions, looks like a pretty easy install and once again thanks to this forum and the people on it.

Re: FashTek HID Question

Make sure you measure OD of the grommet. The instructions that Joe wrote up work fine but I found my hole for the grommet was actually 7/8" not 1". Just thought I would let you know. You will love the extra light at nite.

Re: FashTek HID Question

I purchased from Fashtek last month. 7/8 is the size of the grommet I received. I went to the hardware store and purchased a holesaw and arbor to drill the dust cover. Cored a perfect hole. Found out a few moments later that the wire harness is just slightly larger, so I had to use a file and enlarge the hole. I never measured the hole, so I can't say how much bigger I made it. Just big enough for the harness to pass through, but not so big that the grommet doesn't fit securely. It had me slightly concerned at the moment.

From Joe's instructions on installing the other vendor's product (sorry, don't remember the vendor's name, CRS moment), you have to insert the wires through the grommet. Mine came as a complete unit. Less fiddle, but maybe less "Oh crap!" stress too.

The difference is lighting is phenomenal.
