    hey guys I know I am new here but I have been searching high and low for some advice on installing my strobe kit. I have most of it done except for the actual drilling and mounting of the strobe tubes. I have a pretty good idea of how to do the ones on the back but the fronts are what I can't figure out. I have a 2009 silverado and I just cant find a good place in the headlight assembly to drill and mount the tubes. Any guidance is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    do you have problems with moisture? I was told to avoid puting them on top because of moisture when it rains. And yes they are a big pain to remove... i had to take my whole grill off to get them out

    I just dont see where on the top to drill into without going through the actual lens itself because the backing of the assembly is so close to the bulb. Did you do this on a chevrolet?
