Default Bit the projector bullet... AGIAN!!!

Well I decided to upgrade to FX-R projectors. Im gonna stick with the same bulbs (Phillips 85122+) but I am gonna boost the power up to 50w from 35w.

Ive got new housings in the mail. Also Im gonna order the shrouds when I order the new morimoto 5five ballasts which Im gonna wait about a week to do that.







That light is just the flash from my phone




These are on 35w ballasts and are already brighter than my mini D2s setup.





I'll keep yall updated.

Ben, I know you would recommend these over the D2S so I'm taking back mine very soon and want to do FX-R for my second retro as well. I have a question though. How did you mount them and what did you use? The cutoff band is beautiful! Is that with no mod straight out of the box?

I havent finished mounting yet. But its gonna have some bolts to hold it to the housing when I permanently affix them in the housing using JB Weld and final seal with silicone.

That is a unmodified FX-r 2.0 cutoff.

I need to get back to it and finish these so hopefully soon I will have a more in depth w/photos of the final mounting.
