I recently purchased and installed Retro Solutions 55k 6000k HID kit. I have a few questions. First has anyone hooked the power wire to the back of the fuse box instead of the battery. The supplied power wire is cut from retro solutions to the exact length to hook up to the back of the fuse box. Second has anyone had any problems with the stock mustang headlight bucket melting or deforming at all. I turned the head lights on last night for the first time and the headlight bucket seemed to get pretty hot. I left them on for 10 minutes and they were fine, but just want to be sure before I ruin anything

I have the retro-solutions 35w HID kit wired to the fuse box battery connection. No problems whatsoever. I'm going to be doing a projector retrofit myself in the future with Morimoto mini H1 projectors. Can't wait!

I think the fuse box connections looks more OEM. Thanks for the info. I was actually looking at retro solutions projector kit, but didn't like the idea of cooking my headlight buckets. If I do that at a later time I will probably buy an extra set of OEM buckets and experiment on those instead of destroying the ones on my car
