    You'd have to change the housing from a sealed beam glass bulb to a composite/glass housing that uses replaceable halogen bulbs.. If I remember right, APC makes one and was sold at pep boys. A buddy of mine with a Chevy truck bought them and replaced the sealed beams...

    I know what I need to change and what parts to get I just don't know if fisher wiring can handle it.

    Well as I thought you can not add hids to a 2 plug relay set-up, just draws too much for it to work for a plug n play style.

    Hid has less of a draw on the wiring, added a kit on my motorcycle this summer. The igniter/controller on is where all the high voltage happens, similar to an ignition coil on an engine

    fwiw remember HIDs create a fair amount more heat so make sure to get a glass conversion bulb not plastic. Also, you'll need to find somewhere to put the ballasts... is there room enough inside the old style housings?

    Yup fit fine, slim ballast I'll hopefully get a pic of these installed on a 3 plug mm1 tomorrow.
