Chris-

I needed a plug adapter pigtail (~ $38 from our host) to mount my H1's in my H5-equipped '87 - converts the H5 plug which is 4 prong (IIRC) to the H1's 3 prong (IIRC)

Angelo, I don't think you should need relays to run H5 in a sugar-scoop car unless you plan on running higher output bulbs.

As Bryan noted, did your H5s you sourced include the mounting 'bosses'? They are a large hunk of grey aluminum that should be affixed to the back of the H5.

Bryan, telling a guy who just bought H5s that he should instead install H4s or H1s or whatever isn't very helpful 8-). While both will outperform the H5s, at least he's remedied the aesthetic.

I sourced my H1 trim rings (outer) on eBay for ~ $60... check there or Pelican classifieds...

Good luck.
