    Good evening gentlemen,

    I was wanting to wire in some 35W HID fog and headlights. In the past I've always just wired directly to the positive terminal on the battery. In my current set up my battery has been relocated to my trunk. I was wondering if I could just run my power wire on the HID ballasts to the main power to my fuse box. (The cable circled in the attached picture)

    If this is not a viable solution input would be appreciated.

    yes be sure to fuse it as close to the box as possible.
