    I'm going to weather seal the adapters, and ship the covers off for painting now that i know they work.

    I'll take a couple pics of the final setup, but I'm pretty pleased with the ease of install, and most importantly, the fact that i don't have to cut up any of the factory wiring.

    Plus, now when i resell, I'll have a set of plug and play morettes which are worth more.

    Thanks to BoostedBoxer from ClubWRX.net and Mulder from NASIOC. Couldn't have done it without either of you.

    Thank you, Thank you. Please hold the applause. It was my pleasure Mike, and i cant wait to see the finished product! Btw, that was an excellent idea that way you didnt have to screw with some spade terminals.

    those crimp connections/electricians tape junctions scare the crap outta me. At least get some heat shrink tubing on those bad boys, it'll make them look a bit more professional as well as providing some weatherproofing. Maybe even throw some wireloom or spiral wrap on there to hide the crimps, they make baby jesus cry.

    relax pal. these were just for testing. i'll have final shots of the finished product soon. (look closely, you'll see the heat shrink tubing on there already, just not "shrunk" )

    Can anyone tell me where I can buy JUST the adapters? I'd like to wire those, then just plug in to the stock setup.
    Seven years later in case anyone buys some Morettes and doesn't have the adapters you can fabricate some (i waited four months for Morette to send me the adapters and install hardware. then they sent me 2-wire adapters for Euro spec bugeyes which are useless for US cars. a full five months after i ordered my Morettes they finally sent me the correct adapters! they never did send me the hardware).


    Nokya 9007 heavy duty high-wattage wiring harness


    NAPA 784349 3/8" female spade connectors


    Or you can just buy the adapters (from SUVlights.com) for $45.
