HID installation 2005 LT??

Hi all;

I just purchased HID kits from DDH for my 2005 LT.

Since there is no installation directions with the kits ( for the LT) I was wondering if anyone recently installed the low bulb HID kit to the bike and can answer the following questions:

1) How much plastic needs to be removed?
2) I heard that the bulb support has to be drilled on the 2005, where and how big a hole?
3) Where does the wire from the bulb go to ? under the plastic?

It seems that some people have installed these without taking plastic off!!
Thanks for the responses.
