I'm getting a set of the hella 500's so I guess I need to pickup a set of mounting brackets from kartboy.com. Just wondering how simple this is going to be. Anyone else done this?

you'll like the 500's. i've got them on my 98, and i love em. i don't know about the mounting brackets cause i still have the 98's L bumper.

If you use a few washer to shim the brackets slightly away from the bumper you don't have to pull off the bumper and you'll have enough clearance to still use the light covers that come with the 500's.

Oh yeah, you can't beat these light sfor the $. I also run Hella Yellowstar bulbs in mine and they cut through the weather qute nicely even though they're the driving light model and not "fog".

Care to explain the shimming part to me since I already have the Kartboy brackets and the Hella's sitting here waiting to go on the car. Just don't want to have to pull the bumper off.
