Question HID Fog Light ballast Location Help

I posted this in the GT as well as v6 form since it technically qualifies in both.
Ok, I am about to order a GT Front End so I can have the Big Fog Lights, right now I have the pony package, and I was hoping Some one with a GT, and has HID's in their fog lights, or in their Pony lights,would help me as to where to put the ballast for the Fog Lights. I have HID's for my main lights so I need them to match.
Any comments/Pictures would help

Thanks,
J

I have 4500K headlights and 300K fogs.

Do the following:

1. Buy some NON-PERMANENT Epoxy (make sure around 1200-2000psi max bond pressure)
2. Remove radiator cover and look down untill you stop the metal bar of the inner bumper assembly.
3. There is a HUGE indentation which can comfortably fit slim HID ballasts (buy SLIM HID kid if possible) and most likely enough for regular ballasts.
4. Mix your epoxy wait a few minutes till it gets less runny more sticky and smear A LOT on the bottom of each ballast CAREFULLY lower the ballast into the indentation in the bumper assembly bar and press it down FIRMLY for 2-4min (if you have quick set epoxy).
5. Route all wires as necessary.
6. Re-mount radiator cover.

This way they are hidden and well protected from the elements. Check on the epoxy periodically (every 6months or so) to make sure its holding OK, if it is then you should be good. Its been fine for 2 years on mine now. Good Luck!
