Hi just wondered if anyone can give me some advice. I'm wanting to know which headlights are best for taking the lens out original Alfa ones or there's some Depo ones on eBay. Also what's the best way to take the glass off. Thanks Richard.

Hi thanks for reply. I should also have asked how you stick the lenses back on. Thanks Richard

I bought the DEPO ones and i kinda regret it, After only a few months on the car, both adjustment motors have now gone, they just whirr continuously forever, and there's no real way to fix it, i had to just cut the motor's wire.
Other than that, they're ok.

Do the oven thing for the splitting them, but check evry minute or so or the black plastic will deform.

To re-seal them, i left the glue in place, then put them back together and put them back in the oven to seal them back up.

you can run silicone around to be safe, but mine sealed back up perfectly with just the original glue.

Thanks for your reply. I'm just getting started on the halos so I'm just getting my head round every thing. Not sure where to start but I thought getting the lights and dismantling them is somewhere to start. Cheers Richard.

For the Depo one I had I used the original sealant, and FYI I used the heatgun method on both my headlights. The non Depo one (think its a TRW) was a lot harder to get a part as the sealant wouldn't soften very well. I ended up using some black silicone to seal that one back up, which worked a treat but you will need some tools to keep the headlight together while it dries.

Richard, I am guessing you are the one who pinged me on ebay about my halo kits that I am selling.?

Hi yes it was me. I'm just getting my head round how to make the halos and working out where to get the bits. I take it the the halo rings you have on eBay would be ok for the job. Cheers Richard.

No. The kits troll sells are not the same as project halo and the rings are incompatible.

I think someone mentioned earlier in the thread about that site no longer being available. It is possible to get the stuff from elsewhere though

I can vouch for the relay, I have mine configured for 30 secs which is pretty cool when you're walking away from the car... it's cheaper on ebay too

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1407569745...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

I did have the other DURATEC relay fitted originally, but it went to a watery grave [which is another story entirely] and I wasn't gonna shell out another £57 either !!

This is a good alternative to the chinese PSU, I have 1 per controller, which means that my in line switch is wired slighly differently than on Jay's wikki page

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3507694484...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

They're really small, and everything is wired into a black junction box, which is now located in a much drier place

As the car has just flown through its MOT, I think it deserves some Halo attention.
Have the 'go ahead' from Mrs Druboo, so please count me in for the next batch of controller's
