I prefer to add a bit more butyl for insurance. Like this one TRS sells (they may have a different brand now, but it should be similar)

Under the headlight. OEM HID ballast mounts on the bottom side of the bugeye headlights. For anything else, you can add a plate to bridge between the plastic bumper cover and the front clip:

So I will have to fab something up for now, but if anyone has pictures or ideas on where they mounted the ballasts please help.
There's a fender bolt just aft of the headlights (circled below). I use that to connect TRS' newer ground connection from the harness to the ballasts.
