wassup everyone!? i'd hate to bother everyone about the strobes but i just bought strobes and plan on putting them in the little compartment in the front headlights. The problem is i have somewhat an idea to install them(hooking them up to the battery) i know that the red i hook up the the battery then the black is for grounding. Does that mean i hook the black wire onto a metal part of the car? or does it mean to hook the black wire onto the negative terminal of the battery? info on this would be greatly appreciated! thanks!!!

Jay (couga newbie)

Well sence I have an mtx. I have a hole in my stearing wheel boot and I have wires ran up through my sup frame into the car. But with the hole in my streaing wheel boot My peddles get really hot on long grives and I can feel it. Only drawl back I have from it.. But I like goign through the sub frame better.. Just if you go to a po-dunk place like wall mart make sure they dont put tha lift where the wired go or they will rip them

Get a drill. Pull the carpen on the driver side back and you will see a plug thing on the floor.. Drill througn it and it will pop out if you yank up on the drill. drill in and pull the whole drill out and it should come out. You will see. And you will need zip tie's

So as long as you have a fuse on the positive then you can run the negative to the negative on the battery?
