Default Prodrive Headlight Gurus, need some help...

Alright so below is a picture of what a buddy got me really cheaply. The level motors are still in there as are some H7 bulbs. I can plug and play the Turn Signals and driving lamps, but the rest I'm just wondering what I need. I'm not necessarily wanting to do HID but definitely want projectors.

I've labeled each of the wires to help with people explaining stuff to me. Basically I want to know what I need and what I've got, and if it's all labeled correctly.

Not really sure how this all mounts up to my current stock bugeye with the single headlight, but I realize that the 3 wires going into my current headlight are + and - and a switching one, which I'm assuming I'd hook into the relay right?

Also if I find a cheap HID kit, are the wires that I have labeled for low beams just hooked into the ballast?

Thanks in advance...



And here is me mocking them up...

wow, what a mess. it might just be worth ripping everythig out and starting over.

anyways, looks like #5 plugs into the headlight socket.

is the orange lamp the driving light or the turn signal, or both?

it might also help to remove all the electrical tap, and draw up a quick diagram to show us where everything goes. then we can help you a little more.

im not at all familiar with how the prodrives are wired, but with a diagram any electrical guru can help you sort things out.

The 3 wires going to the headlights should be power in the middle and the other two are switched grounds for the high and low beams.

No. 1 in you picture is a relay and No.2 looks like a diode pack to me. If there are plus an minus signs on it then that is most likely the case.

Sorry I can't help you with the rest of the items.

its been a wile since i have owned prodrive lights so bare withe me
you can pick up new low beams from www.rallylights.com the have both the HID and standard version of projectors that fit that light. look up the 90mm modules.

the other plugs should just plug in. the one you have maybe high beam i think is for the high beam. thats the lights that are still there. pop off the back cover and those two wires should just have right angle spade plugs on it.

plug in all the stuff that can plug in and go from there.

#5 plugs into your stock light harness. however, you will need to make a adapter from H4 to the 9004 (as i think the bugeye is 9004 and that plug is a H4)
what i did was just cut off that plug and put the 9004 plug on it.

#3 should be for the leverlers. you can double check the color code to be sure.

Thanks everyone for the help! I found that when I looked at the right hand light it has no wires at all, no turn signal bulb, no city light mount, and no leveler. THe leveler I could care less about, and also that's what the brown plug is for. The turn signal area fits the oem turn signal if I can find a way to snug it in there non-permanently. So I think I'm gonna head to radio shack and take the light and say what's it gonna take to build this for the other side.

Hey Paranoid-thanks for the link!! They have basically everything I need except a city light mount and turn signal mount.
