As far as wiring goes, use the hella harness that came with the hellas, the stock harness is not going to do as well. As for mounting them to the brackets, I cant help you on that one. I made my own mounts out of aluminum.

you are better off wiring in the harness that the hellas came with. if not there is a lot of splicing to be done.

Got a pic? When I mounted my FF1000's I had to put the light onto the bracket then screw the bracket to the car. What do the brackets look like and are the light bolts on the bottom or back?

To mount the lights to the bracket all you have to do is point the mounting bolt straight back and bolt it to the "slot" on the bracket. To mount the lamp to the car after it's been attached to the bracket though you'll need to drill a hole through the bumper skin/backing plate so that the lamps mounting bolt can have room to stick through. I actually just cut out an opening with a saw and some tin snips for the mounting bolt to go.
