My HID kit came in the mail yesterday,
so this morning with a cup of coffee in my hand I stumbled out to the garage and stripped her down.
This is my first time removing the tupperware,
started with the windshield, then nose cone cover, both side covers and then the nose cone.
The HID installation was a breeze with the detailed instructions available on this site.
Stopped for lunch and ran out to the auto parts store for some universal light sockets.
Decided to convert the front turn signals to running lights, took the power from the parking light.
While I had everything of I strung some extra wires along both sides to the tipoverwings for the lights I'll be hanging from there next,
decided to go with an illuminated switch on the dash and a relay near the battery.
while I had the winglets of I noticed they are hollow, it would be real easy to put a light in there, that must be how they get those wings of gold. I might look into that in the future.
Re-assembly wasn't bad, only one little problem when I got all done I had 2 screws left over.
uh-oh wonder what's gonna fall of on my next ride.

Congrats Hans! It only gets easier as you feel the need for more Farkles! As far as your 2 spare screws go: Take a look at the nose cone cover just inside of the windshield mount arms. Bet you find an empty hole on each side! DAMHIK.

Naaw, that would be too easy, I went over it a couple of times, it's somewhere deep down in there

Check behind your mirrors, that's an easy place to forget two fasteners.

My guess is that after taking out the screws you put them together somewhere safe. They probably have not been near each other for a long time. You were busy with other things. Some of them lived up to their name. The two "left over" ones are new babies.

I feel your pain!!!!!! :eek: I to have my 06 LT torn apart in the garage. I am installing Piaa 1100x driving lights, satellite radio & radar detector. Having had a RT before and installing the same thing to it, finding all the screws to remove to get the Tupperware off is some time’s challenge. It is the only way to go to make a clean hard wire job work. I will be finishing it up tonight. I hope I don’t have any let over. Oh well “No fools No Fun”
