Evening Hellcat crew! Hope you're all doing well. Well I just cashed in and bought a 2016 SRT Hellcat in B5 blue. Always been my dream car and pretty chuffed to finally have it in my possession. Big upgrade from my RT to say the least.

She's in damn good condition with just 20k km on the clock and just a bit of curb rash the dealership has offered to pay for the repair of.

Anyways, I'm naturally going to be adding in elements such as hardwiring my Escort 360max. What's people's thoughts on tapping into the headlight switch or is it better to stick to the 12v DC accessories outlet? Just scared to pull it apart.

Cheers!

Get a mirror tap kit. No cutting or splicing. It slides right into the mirror connector.

Do s search, plenty of photos to go around.

I myself am using a mirror tap kit and a blend mount for my R7.
Perfect I'll take a look as this seems to be the easiest!

I'll get some shots up soon. Thanks for the warm welcome!

+1 on that, dope AF :)
Thanks!! Wasn't too hard just the mounting needs some work as I can't get my fingers in behind the grill to secure it so it's 3m'd for now.

Was thinking to put them together and sell on here if people are interested? I've seen them go for close to $300+.... Probably alot cleaner looking still.

You'd probably sell several at the very least... with my ZL1 there was people doing a lit up Chevy badge.... and it was very popular..

For sure. It's a bit of a sideline play around. I'm just struggling to figure a way to bolt that bad boy onto the grill permanently. I just enjoy designing things and save some cash. Better sense of achievement than just paying $300usd/ 390cad for something I can make.

Don't suppose anyone can suggest where to tap into an accessory cable in the engine bay? The light works great in the day but at night it turns off. If you have a cable colour too would be a big help.

If I'm not mistaken, the factory one is just bolted on..

It is, there's 2 clips and another central pin. But I mean the ones I've designed haven't got that and I can't fit my hand down into the grill to secure it properly without removing the whole front it seems.
