1. yeswastedonanime said:Also for clarification, is it true that:
1. The projector (housing?) can be purchased w/o the light assembily which will provide appropriate beam patterns for the bulb it was designed to work with.
2. Given that 1 is true, you can purchase an aftermarket HID conversion kit and combine that with the projector housing to make a fully functional and properly working unit?
Basically, I am trying to find out if I can purchase the bulb/ballast/igniter that will (more or less) 'easily' retrofit with the original wiring and purchase the projector housing seperately. Somehow I have the feeling the answer is "yes" just because it would not make much sense for the answer to be no. Stuck at work so can't do the appropriate research and I can't wait til later. ^ ^
There is a very informative thread on HIDplanet which the diagram above was taken from. I just ordered the parts to make a wiring harness and will post a parts list and progress pictures. Basically you just follow the diagram above.is there a way you could post a write up on how to install the wiring and all?
HOLY CRAP THIS THREAD IS THE TRUTH! i was asking about it over here:Retrofit completed. Much larger pain than anticipated due to several unexpected things. End result is a 3/4 finished project. Will be completed next week (with the driving lights put in).
Went with the original chrome trim for a bit of contrast. Could have stayed with the black but it's too late now (well, it's never too late but as far as I am concerned its over and done with). Didn't bother with a shroud/bezel. Partly because I like the 'raw machine' look but 95% because I didn't want to bother with it. : )~ I'll have some nighttime pics up when I have them aligned and I can have my amateur photographer friend take some pics with a camera that cost the same amount as this mod.
