    I created a harness using 1/4" wire loom and then covered that with 3/4 heat shrink tubing. In the socket I used hot glue to protect the open contacts and secure or hold the wires. I also used hot glue at the end of the wire loom/heat shrink tubing to seal the wiring off.

    Excellent! Glad to hear from others that I actually know what I'm doing sometimes.

    Updated the entire article.
    I've cut out all the extra methods that were, in my opinion, lazy. The focus is simple installation and on how to create your own plug-n-play harness (if needed) using soldering and using a more professional-looking method.
    Hopefully it's all much more clear now.

    Yes. I never had a plug-n-play harness, so it took me all day to rewire my original harness and create a new pnp for the DIY article.
    Too much sun for one day so I'll reinstall the projectors eventually. Maybe.

    Yes, I was going for that Victoria's Secret look.

    On a different note, I fear I may have inhaled too much lead during the process.
