This is just a test fit to check for clearance and light aim.

I'll trim the wire, solder connectors and make it look pretty.

Holy carp this thing is bright.

I did the stator too.

I am also buying the ballast plate to use as a cover for the top of the light.

Thanks to Hodakaguy for the recommendation.
Looks great! While your at it remove the bulb from the light assy, mask off the front glass with tape and spray paint the back side of the light with high temp flat black....the light will look a lot better once installed since your eye's won't be drawn to the bright chrome bulb.

On the wiring you can use a piece of old rubber inter tube and some plastic flex loom to clean it up and hide the wires. Here's a few pics of my install using the inter tube. CLICK HERE

Make sure you run it aimed all the way down on the street . Even then it's pretty bright from the front although I rarely get flashed running it all the way down.
