Default Re: Finally Bit the Projector Bullet

Just have to fine tune everything once darkness falls then I will be good to go. I will get dusk pictures and output pictures as well

Excuse the RF Stickers in a couple of the photos... I dont have an FRF Sticker that would fit in that spot

everything cost me $375 plus the cost of paint.

Time wise. It would have all been done in about 7-8 Hours if all the parts had arrived at the same time. Then to seal them back up I used just plain bathroom clear silicone from home depot and then ratchet strapped them together over night. Wiring was all pretty much plug and play.

As far as hardness goes it really was not too hard. scale 1-10. I would say probably maybe a 5 or 6 at most.

Night shots will come as soon as the sun starts going down

Looks good! Props for doing it right and not just throwing HID's in stock housing like others. That cutoff is sweet.

I'm talking about giving the 9007 bulbs up in order to get bulbs that will fit the projectors which are H1 I believe. I'll have to do the same as well but I bet it's well worth it. But I'll probably wait later down the road because I'm still waiting for my free replacements of 6000k for my new 55watt kit.

I don't like the shroud that goes over it. But what about just getting the projectors and a set of bulbs off evilbay?
