    Gonna do sealed beam conversion

    I got the sealed beam conversion kit from eurolights.com and plan on doing it this weekend. I was gonna crimp the wires and tape them together but now I'm thinking it would be better to solder them together. Anyone done this?

    Solder and heat shrink tubing is the only way to go to do a professional job

    Crimping and taping is fine for little stuff, but for a major component such as headlights, I'd solder it.

    Solder it all, it will save you a headache in the future.

    Soldering is always the best. I used tape though since I had no heatshrink at the house. I am fine with it since I use the expensive electrical tape not the 99 cent stiff Walmart stuff.

    Here is a pic of the kit. They look just like normal glass sealed beams but with a replaceable bulb. I have the same kit but used HID's bulb kit instead of the generic bulbs they come with or some cheap autozone bulbs. One of the nicer setups for the price.

    Ok good. I was thinking of the fixed headlight kit and was gonna shit.

    This is a real good option.
