I haven't gotten around to making a forming table-no room in my tiny house. PM me with your idea(s).

Marlons:

The ones I did were relatively easy once I figured out the parts. You can read more about it here: http://www.tahoeyukonforum.com/forum...=32004&page=11

Start reading at page 11...I started pretty much from scratch over my original plan and you already saw the results.



Couple more exterior pics in the daylight:

So I'm thinking of getting four 6 inch fog lights to mount on my roof rack bars but then be able to mount them to the basket. I'm not sure what brand to go with light force or hella's. Is there much difference ? What about wiring ? I'm thinking of going through the antenna but not sure if that will work. Any suggestions ?

I think a set of lightforces will run you an upwards of 250ish i think i know they are pretty expesive... Theres also some lights called vision x i just heard of dont know anything about em but they could be cheaper if u want to look into that

Well fogs shouldn't go on the roof. Driving beams would work much better that high. Hellas would be the least spendy by far. Lightforces are spendy but I'm told they are worth every penny-Inkpreza loves his.

Took a quick peek from my phone ad vision x are about 450 for a pair of 6".

Question for all you guys with Morimoto H1 (or D2S for that matter) projectors.

How do you like them? I am hearing some complaints they aren't very good with distance, I realize they aren't OEM so there are going to be some downfalls, however if I find when I install the Morimoto H1 projectors I have, that the light is less than my OEM Halogens I am not going to be impressed.

The quads are H1s. Even a pair of them will be far better than stock halogens.

Like a fool I didn't have my camera with me when I installed crash907's E55s so I'm refreshing the thread so he can post the phone pix he shot. I'm also thinking of having another HID mini-meet. I'll post up with a date.

Sonny and I did my headlights today. I chose to use Morimoto 50 watt ballasts and bulbs for some more oomph in my lighting compared to the 35's, along with OEM Mercedes E55 projectors and shrouds. Sonny did a great job and really taught me a lot about lighting. He experimented with a single relay wiring harness that works great and really cleans things up in your engine bay. Anyone wanting to do this should sit down with him, have a beer, and make up a plan for your lights. Truly great work. Thanks man now here's the goodies.

Here are the before pictures

And here I thought you'd be "exploring" every unlit backroad in Alalska! Lol! Glad you like them and thanks to you for being my guinea pig with the new wiring harness and the kind words. I hope to post up the time for the next mini-meet soon! Enjoy!
