Heh.. I know..

I have to decide on how much current I'm going to run, and pick my resistors.

I have been posting steady updates every few days.

Update:

Last night I installed both headlights with projectors mounted and drove to Kmart to aim them late at night against the wall of the building. After removing the lights and shimming the adjustment spots I made I have the aim basically perfect (although I think I want to adjust the rotation of the drivers side)

Today I built the PCBs for the headlights, and I'm happy with how they came out. I had continuity one place where I wasn't supposed to, but I fixed that with a razor blade. They fit awesome. Obviously these are installed backwards (so you can see the trace).



The only problem I have now is that I need a 1.0mm drill bit. I was able to find 1/16th" size, but I don't want to use these, I want something smaller. I will probably buy about 50 of them because I'm sure I'll break quite a few of them.

Took apart my projectors today and painted the cutoff shield so that they will look bright green from outside.

Today I drilled 672 holes for 168 Superflux LEDs with a 1.0mm bit.

And I didn't even bend or break the bit!

Took me about 2 hours... The LEDs fit fantastic. Now I have to figure out a way to paint the back side of the boards white so they will match the truck. When you look through the headlights/corners at the LEDs they will look clear and match the body.
