Hide away stobe vs strobe light heads

    I had a hide away system on my Excursion and when I got my new truck I took it off. Now the new truck, 05 F-250, I am reluctant to do the same installation in the newer style headlights with the reflector. I am worried the reflector will crack and break when drilled. I have a set of 4 remote strobe heads that I was thinking of installing. The front would be easy, in the grill, but the rear I can't find a good place to put them. Any suggestions on drilling the headlights? Is the parking light section the same with the reflector, would it be easier to drill them out there?

    If you're going to drill them out, just make sure to start out with a small drill bit and just a tiny amount of pressure. Also, make sure you don't make the holes to big. I have seen many hack jobs with headlight strobes.

    You shouldnt have any issues drilling into the parking reflectors. The plastic is soft enough that it wont crack. You can use a hole saw like I usually use or a unibit which will have a bit less shavings.
