Custom Installation Training
Thank you for visiting the training for custom installations. Please review this information and complete the brief 3-question assessment at the end. (This training cannot count towards your goal without a completed assessment.)
At Oracle Lighting, one of our most popular in-house services is our custom installation. Our team of knowledgeable experts work together to provide efficient and high-quality work every time. Watch this brief overview of the process!
If you do not wish to install any of the products offered yourself, you can ship your headlights or fog lights to us for a professional installation by our trained technicians! Whether your customer wants an existing kit installed or a totally customized lighting setup, we are available to assist with your outsourcing needs. Your sales rep will assist with the setup of the custom application, you will be responsible for removing the lights from the vehicle and shipping them to us. You can bring your housings to the nearest UPS store where they will carefully package and ship the lights for you.
Below are some recommendations to consider when packaging your lights:
Lights should be individually wrapped with bubble wrap or similar wrapping product for fragile items.
Foam bag/spray offer best protection for headlights and fog lights.
Headlights and Fog Lights should have no less than 2 inches of padding between products and the top, bottom, and sides of box.
Use of “loose” packaging is not recommended. Item should not be able to move around the box.
Protruding brackets/features and attachments should be protected and immobilized if possible.
Headlights/Fog Lights should be insured for the total value of the items in order to prevent out of pocket expenses should damage occur.
Once arrived, they pass an inspection before being taken to our technicians for installation. With the install complete, our shipping team will package the lights with UPS-grade packaging for secure protection. We can usually design and install a kit in 5-7 business days depending on how complex the ring design is. Please add an additional 10-12 business days for OEM or Gloss Black Paint.
We can build the new set of lights, with all of your customer's desired customizations, and ship them back to you to complete the vehicle's modification. This is a great way to earn the business of local customers over competing shops that do not offer completely custom work!
ORACLE Headlight Halo Kit Installation:
The headlights are carefully disassembled and housings are separated from the assembly. Our professionals install the halo kit, then the assemblies are reassembled in a dust-free environment, and wired for you to install into your vehicle. (Some electrical wiring knowledge is required to install your headlights.) Our shipping team will then carefully foam and package your headlights and safely ship them back to you.
ORACLE Fog Light Halo Kit Installation:
Just like our headlight halo kit installs, we also offer professional fog light halo kit installs as well. The steps are generally the same as the headlight build process, but with a faster turn around time.
Custom DRL Installation:
We offer a large selection of custom style Daytime Running Light modifications for many vehicles. We can install our Concept SMD Strip, for a vibrant laser-like approach, or use our Flexible DRL strip for a more luxurious modern style.
Custom Headlight Painting:
One of the most unique mods you can do to compliment the halo headlight installation is to Color-Match the headlight housings to the body paint color. This gives any vehicle the look of an exotic. We can also tint the inner amber lenses of the headlight for a stealthy look. SMD Halo Rings can even be painted to match the headlight color.
Projector Retrofitting involves taking a Xenon headlight projector from a factory housing and installing that into a non-projector headlight. This process Involves fabricating a new projector cradle to hold the new projector properly while maintaining the factory leveling adjusters. Pricing and compatibility varies depending on the vehicle and projector type desired.
Projector Lens Glass Etching:
ORACLE Lighting offers laser-engraving services for glass projector lenses. We can etch lenses with the purchase of our Retrofit Projectors or lenses that are shipped to our facility to be etched. Customer must provide logo in high-resolution 2-color JPG or Vector Format (AI or PDF).
We also offer a beta program for brand new kits. This program gives your customer first dibs on pre-released products and scores free professional installation by our in-house technical team plus a featured spot on the product page and press release. Ask your sales rep for a list of current beta program vehicles!
This is a great way to advertise a new service that you weren't able to offer before. Since you bypass the hassle of opening and resealing the housings yourself, it can be a much easier process for a smaller or busier crew which will allow you to assist more customers.
When promoting on social media, choose high-quality photos and videos to show off the service you offer and tag @oraclelights so people know that you are an authorized dealer.
Where possible, promote your installation service by taking photos of your own work and update followers on build progress. If you choose to use a customer's photo or one you find on our profile, remember to credit the vehicle's owner. If you have a large build that displays your work well, you can consider hiring a local photographer to take professional photos (with the customer's permission) to use for promotional purposes.
Tag your shop location and use hashtags such as #ledlights #offroading #oraclelights. Posting on your Instagram or Facebook Story will also help more people find your page, and be sure to have your contact information on your profile so they can easily contact you. You can even display a tablet or television in your showroom with a slideshow of the photos you take and post. Many people like to see how the custom work will look when installed on their vehicle so use photos of your most regularly serviced vehicle.
