Gen 1 with Hid Help

looking for a little help with wiring up my new Beamershid H1 6000k's in my gen 1 projectors. the power and ground wires to the balist, did anyone just cut the adapter off and hardwire or plug spaded lines into the adapter and sealed from elements or is there an adaptor to connect the factory harness and just wire it to the balists?

Idk exactly what the question is here. But for my projectors I just cut a hole in the rubber sealer thing tthe bulbs are in and the wires come through and put the spades from the wires directly onto the connectors then sealed it baclk up with silicon.

for the gen 1s do you just attach the power and ground lines for the ballist to the lines on the h1 bulb?

What I mean is the wires that run through the rubber cover to power the stock h1 bulb for low beam. Do I attach the the two spaded lines for power in to ballist to it?.
