NEED: Electrical Bike Specialist!

Hey guys I'm looking to see if there's anybody here who'd be willing to take on a job for pay. I have a set of projectors retrofits with built-in halo rings already installed in my 2008 600rr "graffiti" headlamp housings, (reflectors taken out so headlamps are blacked out as they were from the dealer). What I need done is, have them re-wired since the last guy who "claimed" he knew what he was doing ended up dicking me around and half-assed the work leaving things a bit sloppy in my standards and unable to function as promised.

Here is what I want:
-DRL's with halos, (positioned so that the break in halo ring is hidden towards 2pm and 10am, respectively).
-DUAL HID low beams off the handlebar HIGH beam switch.
-DUAL HID high beams off a separate toggle switch he installed.
-Clean, tucked, (almost OEM) look of wiring in wire loom/etc.

Here is what I have:
-DRL's with halos, (break in the halo ring is on the bottom and looks ugly).
-SINGLE HID low beam off the handlebar HIGH beam switch.
-NO high beam HID's AT ALL, (switch doesn't do anything).
-I hear a buzzing sound, (NOT the normal HID ballast noise; I've had HID equipped cars).
-When the headlamps were open and resealed the glue is easily seen when looking at the headlamps once installed, (glue is grey-ish, housing of headlamp is black so it's very easily noticed).

So in essence:
-Rotate the Halos so the break is on top instead of bottom, (break is hidden when on).
-Fix so that the single low > dual HID low beams off handlebar high beam switch.
-Fix so the toggle switch turns on dual HID high beams.
-Address the strange buzzing sound.
-Tidy up the wiring with heat-shrink/solder/wire loom.
-Make sure the glue isn't visible and the headlamps are properly sealed, (black high temp silicone?).
-Properly aim the headlamps for dual HID low/hi beam functions.


I hate having to redo work and on top of that giving someone else a problematic bike to start off with, but was seeing if anybody could help me out. My pocketbook is already drained because this guy took the money and isn't willing to work something out so cost is of essence. I know the kind of effort this takes as I've seen him *TRY* to do right the first time, so I'm not oblivious to things. If anybody could help, please post/PM me. Thanks fellas!



ps. I have diagrams and schematics that will help as well, just some of the toggles for high/low beams may need to switched around.

Good luck finding somebody that doesn't know you that is willing to go in and fix that mess for what sounds like very little money....

Thanks friend for your kind input.

ps. I can revert the wiring back to stock if it'd help so we can start from scratch.
