Post I too finally bit the Projector Bullet

As the title says, I just placed my order for some retro fit projectors from http://www.theretrofitsource.com/. I ordered the Morimoto Bi Xenon Mini D2S projectors as well as the new Gatling 2.0 shrouds; Angel eyes for the shrouds and to top it all off, Audi style LED strips! Ben Manning aka btm757 on here I believe has the same setup but with the original Gatling shrouds. The output with these projectors are amazing so that is why I got them. I'll be getting pictures up once I receive the package and the setup on my truck will be different then Ben's setup (don't won't to be copying) lol. So stay tune and wish me luck

i've wanted to do these for awhile. it just seems a little sketch to just 'screw' the projector into the stock headlight bulb socket. but, since i lack the finesse to actually cut my headlight up to mount a projector a different way (and have it be aimed correctly), these look great. i wanna see pics too.

Update 4/25/11

So since Thursday or ordering the stuff, I have not received any information or responses from the company about my order. I was scared that they took my money and ran. But I did receive some info today (after emailing them) and they apologies saying that a lot of people took Friday off because of Easter. So they told me that the shipped it out today and I should get on Wednesday. I got free shipping and they are giving me 2-3 day shipping, NICE! So, everyone, please be patient (ahem FlyinRyan) as once I receive the package, I will take pictures and post them onto here, I PROMISE! So stay tune!

Update 5-3-11

So with work and everything, I had been very busy and wasn't able to post pics up here. BUT, I have been working on the projectors and I am just about done. I snapped a halo (they are SO fragile). So I had to buy a replacement one and also a high and low beam harness. But all I need to do is install the halos, the harness, LED strips and seal it up. I have 58% done of uploading onto photobucket and once done, I will post them onto here in order. So stay tune everyone, your gonna like it!

Painted the headlights black after the background glare of the lights shinning:

Before



After



Can you guess what's in the lens?

Once you get the headlights apart, it is a piece of cake! Shoot, I might be up to do this for members on here

----------

Night shots




Look at that beautiful cutoff and that color. It's SO vivid




PS. I have no high beams YET. Need to wait for the package tomorrow.

I'm going to place the LED strips on the top and not the bottom. Just wanted to compare.

how well are they held in there? my worry is that off road these will cause the housing to crack, or will shake so bad i won't be able to see.

They don't shake or anything while inside the housing. It is well secured and tight inside. I'll take some pictures of putting it in and showing you how it is tighten down. I'll do this when I get home from work.
