Default Bugeye Morimoto Mini retrofit

Just finished my Morimoto Mini H1 5.0 retrofit...I'm pretty happy with the outcome so I thought i'd share! So, i wanted to do this for a while and after seeing countless posts i decided to go for it... i mean they are only headlights... Bought the Morimoto Mini H1 stage III (35 w and 5000k bulbs, gatling gun shrouds) kit from theretrofitsource.com. The guys TRS were extremely helpful! Anyways, onto some pics...

"stock" headlights...already koji modded them years ago...


time to start retrofitting!

testing the fitment


almost done...but not sure i like the gatling gun shrouds chrome...

time for some paint and some trimming so the projector pops out of the shroud further...

Much better

aaaand the only thing that matters..the output!




Let me know what you think

Looking good. Is the ground level with the garage door? If so your driver side would benefit from a little clockwise rotation. It is hard to get this level, on mine even if the projector is level in the heqdlight, somehow when I attach the headlight to the car it tends to be rotated. Try loosening the mounting screws of the headlight and angle it a bit. There might be enough slack to make the driver side level, and then retighten.

I also have to do that to mine, I think I'll enlarge the mounting holes slightly (the 2 towards grille) to have a bit more play to get like 1 extra degree.
