ICE/electrical shop?

A buddy of mine is converting his headlights to HID and needs a shop with some relevant experience. Anyone got any tips or recommendations?

When I converted my last car over, I bought a complete kit that came with the bulbs and ballast. It was easy enough to wire everything and mount the ballast.
I would think you'd be able to help him do it, no?

I've also done a HID conversion. Pretty straight forward. I'm actually gonna be doing one on my car soon...

HID conversions are superrr easy. You can probably install within 15-20 mins.

DDMTuning.com sells affordable HID Conversion kits.

PM me if you want an extra hand.

Well the thing is that he said he already tried one shop and I guess there's some kinda complication, so now he needs to reverse the polarity or something
