degamer Almost there! It's probably time to start working on the custom housing lens, and the rear end cap, and mating it all together to check the clearances!

degamer After making some slow and steady progress i started getting closer to where I need to start looking at creating a custom housing lens, I decided to try out the projector in the housing as is and make some comparison photos for others to see what they're missing out on!
Here's both the Plug n Play kit and my future HID Projector together side by side. There's no denying the difference! If you're in the CA Bay Area and you wasn't REAL HID lighting the RIGHT way, hit me up!

On one side, this is what my retrofit will produce! More than 2x the width you get from any Plug n Play kit you just drop into your regular lights, and NO glare in other people's eyes!

On one side, my Plug n Play HID kit that I currently have. Don't be fooled by that cut-off line you see. It still sends HID light glare into people's eyes.

degamer Slowly grinding/cutting the housing to fit the Morimoto Mini H1 projector inside. The smallest of the highest quality aftermarket HID projectors you can buy, and tuned by The Retrofit Source. If you want HID lights the right way for your car, and you're in the CA Bay Area, hit me up.

  •   sgtrodriguez3kgt Let me know if you find a way to make them close without cracking the glass/plastic. It fits too far back for me so leave my headlights open all the time. 10mon
  •   degamer @sgtrodriguez3kgt I think I did. Create a vertically curved lens out of acrylic to make a little extra room inside and bring the projector a little forward without extending the lens rim around the outer sides. I think you can also make the acrylic lens a little thinner than the glass lenses the housings come with because they're so much stronger. 10mon
  •   degamer @sgtrodriguez3kgt you said people ask about your lights all the time. Is it because they're black inside with a real projector, or is it really the retrofit job itself? 10mon
  •   sgtrodriguez3kgt The questions I get are how did you do that, and is it hard to do. I don't have the tools to polyform a rounded lens. Nor do I know if it would look right with our cars. However I didn't remove the lens, I cut the housing open. My came with a glass lens, which I would need gasoline to take off. Cutting it was much faster. 10mon
  •   degamer I see. All you have to do is heat it up, then bend it to the desired curve. If you google search 4x6 HID or something similar, there's a premade 4x6 with a projector that has this very design. It will look fine, and it's the only way I could think of that would provide more than just a couple millimeters of left over space front and back. That's what someone else had when they barely managed to keep the up down function. It will still be tight, just not as tight as others tried. 10mon
  •   sgtrodriguez3kgt I can say the best workable length is an eBay projector housing with an h4-3 bixenon bulb. That total length is maximum workable depth for the headlight function 10mon
  •   degamer @sgtrodriguez3kgt Exactly! I found out that even the non-projector eBay housings; which is what I have; are shorter on the mounting legs on the back half of the housing compared to the metal Hella housings I currently have on the car. I found this allows you to add 4 mm in depth to the lens. Then with the curved section, you can easily add another 15 mm to the available depth without affecting the beam or headlight adjustment much, and it's a relatively shallow bend so I don't think it will look as weird as you might think. 10mon

degamer I'm so thankful USANA Health Sciences came up with Nutrimeal and Rev3! It keeps me going while on the job, and allows me to relax on my breaks. No rushing more rushing to eat anymore!
