Have Recon projectors, want HIDs

I just bought a set of recon projectors and am wanting to go to hid's. I ordered a set from DDM tuning but I am having a little trouble installing them. I was wondering if anybody had done an HID upgrade with recon's. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I got H1 55W 8000K. Its not the bulb I'm having issues with. I don't know where to pull the wires through on them. Particularly the low beams. There isn't room on the rubber dust cover to punch a hole for the rubber grommet on the DDM wires.

Did you drill through the housing or cut the rubber dust cap?
