The lights behind the grill look great.

How did you mount them?

I plan on mounting a set of Hella 500's, maybe the Black Magics, behind the grill like that on my 245.

Where best to connect for a constant on 12v.

Car is a 91 245.

I want to hard wire a dash cam with motion detection so it should turn on and record [only]when it senses movement.

What would be best?

Thanks.
