Where do you velcro the balasts, the thing with the BMS ones, there are now 2 ballast instead of 1 SIGH

you CAN tuck the ballasts, but it's a better idea to velcro them.

let's see if i can find that old install thread...
I had one side wink out on me, come to find out the connector got pulled weird because i hadn't secured the ballast. pushed everything nice and tight, velcro in, zero problems since.
