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.
