How hard would it be for me to install DDE's with sorta minimal knowledge. I did the side marker conversion mod and the extra brake light mod, and those both turned out very well. What do you guys think? I heard you have to bake the headlights, i don't want to melt the wires or anything, somebody gotta help me, and please point me in the direction of a great tutorial. Thanks guys.

Daylight Demon Eyes...they are basically like Halos or Angel Eyes, but bright enough to be seen in the daylight, hence the Daylight part of the name. They are pretty cool really.

Putting em on can be a real bitch. It's not that it's hard it's just time consuming. You have to bake the headlight take off all the silicon and than place them on let them dry, wait for them, re silicon in all back in and it just a timely process but DEFINATELY worth the wait...

yeah, check out that ass (in MY avatar)..it's all mine

its a pin to install the halos , they are extremly fragile . i must have broke about 3 halos trying to get this done . good thing is RPM supplies one small and one large halo extra with your order , and buying an extra set cost me about $15

Another silly question: How are the actual halo rings attached within the headlight unit? And to what are they attached? Double-sided 3M tape?

They are installed with silicone, it's not hard you just have to be carefull. Handle like a new born and you'll be okay.
