Nee got some new eyes :) New pictures 4/23 Post #29

Post by LilSparkPlug » Fri Apr 20, 2012 8:48 am

It was time...the OEM lenses on the other set of retros far exceeded their usefulness so I finally hunkered down and in my spare time over the last few months built these retrofits for him.

They are:
Morimoto bi-xenons v3.0 that are sunk (not mounted the way they would normally be)
GTI-R shroud painted PYH
Semi Gloss black
A mish mosh of bulbs (I ordered 4300k but I got a 4300k and a 6000k :/...gotta fix that)
Morimoto CANBUS harness

Nothing too fancy or elaborate just better visibility overall and finally...I have high beams. :) They're a love it or hate it retrofit and I'm still not sure if I'll be going with eyelids or not. Next on the list is foglights.

I also tinted these:

Here's one of the last pictures with the old retros and eyelids taken on Easter Sunday:

I approve of these new projectors, Macaroni. I still say you do one eyelid.

The "yellow under glass" (actually plastic :lol: ) really makes it stand out. But I like it better without eyelids.

omg love them.

quick question on your old retro you also had mini h1 projectors right? did you have any issues with them hitting the lense and pushing the lenses off the headlight housing?

I like the the eyelids and the white walls on the tires adds nice little touch IMO.

Jeff: :rofl: I knew you'd say that.

2low4uneon: Thanks!!!

r/tguy: Part of my does also, thank you :)

SC62391: Here you go! I took only one eyelid off the old retros to "test" how it would look.
Image

WhiteSRT69: Thank you!

Gramps: Thank you :) I'm really torn about the eyelids though. I think that's where my heart is but I'm not sure.

Fac3l3ss: The lenses are in poor condition but I was considering selling them cheap once everything settled down here with my classes and whatnot.

JesseL Thanks! The old retrofits were G1 projectors which won't hit the lens. But the Morimotos will almost always hit the lens when mounted the way they come unless you modify the headlight bowl, and even then it's hit or miss when it comes to aiming. I didn't want to deal with that so I sunk them.

LowNSlow; Seems to be a 50/50 thing. Maybe Jeff's right I should just leave one on :rofl:

Spaz: Thanks! I love the white lettering, I really need to re-do it I haven't had the time but I love the look.

Dodge Evo: Thank you :)

Ragek23: Thanks!

theColonel: I can see that point of view for sure....leaves a lot for me to think about.

Thanks! I think that's why I'm so torn. Right now they're off because I don't have the time to fix and repaint the ones I have until classes are out. But I may put them on again once everything settles down.

LOL.. anyway GREAT job! I think they tend to blend in more with the eyelids and I can feel for you cause I like them with and without. I would NOT do just one on though ;)

SC62391: :rofl: Good one!

Speed127: Hence my dilemma, although I did a photoshoot this weekend in upstate NY and I think I'm starting to love them without.

Nate: Thank you!

Johny: Fogs are definitely next on the list, just not sure if I want to retro them or just get new ones and tint them with some rock blocker. Back when I first got him I had them tinted but the film was horrible and it didn't last. I liked the look with the headlights being so dark and all.

brybry: :rofl: Pikachu good one!! Thanks :)

Manny: The lenses were starting to go and I'm not sure what I want to replace them with yet so I tinted them to appease my OCD so I wouldn't have to look at the yellowing any longer.


Here's some shots from this past weekend in upstate New York. These make me love them just the way they are. It was raining in A LOT of these pictures, so my lens was "dirty".
