Pm'ed you! About to do my own retrofit but I'd like to see what you have and what you'd charge for yours first!

Is there a thread somewhere with instructions for getting good night shots of beam patterns and cutoffs?

Hey man, it cost 125 for the eBay headlight housings, and 375 for the projector kit. Fits only on bugeye, the bulbs are 5500 if I remember correctly. The labor to retrofit the eBay headlights is no easy task, and the headlights were only on my car for 6 months before I got rid of the car. You can see the date I completed the retrofit within this thread, but I say 6 months because I finished the retrofit last summer and took the car to school. At school it was hardly driven and garage kept. The aiming could be adjusted slightly, but the adjusters all work fine so that shouldn't be an issue. The reason I got the eBay headlights is because the adjusters broke in the process of retrofitting and I couldn't aim the headlights properly. Make an offer based upon that, been asking 500 since that was the cost of the parts, they are practically brand new, if cleaned the lenses look brand new, and the labor is a bitch..

How do you expect to sell retrofitted headlights without beam shots?

Pics are broken. Any chances the pics can be reuploaded? Maybe to imgur? Or do anyone know if this thread exists anywhere else with working pics?

I am wanting to do this. Car is in repair sitting in the garage on blocks, so the opportunity is here. I have a question: What did you all do about the OEM DRLs for the retrofit to HIDs?

Do the fog light mod and also disable the DRLs. They only cause problems.

I believe that just means your fog lights are on. Try turning them off and see if the lights go away

Hate to revive an old thread.

I'm in the middle of the retrofit and I am using the ocular shrouds, but I don't have any way to mount the shroud to the projector. It sits on top of it but I have no way of connecting them. Anyone else have this issue? What is supposed to connect the shroud to the projector?

jb weld, epoxy, liquid nails - anything that'll take a high temp will do nicely

So sorry about the pics in the post. I put in a lot of work to this how-to and I feel like ppl were benefiting from it, but alas, photobucket went full moron.

To be honest, I don't have the original photos anymore, and photobucket wanted some ridiculous amount to retrieve photos. It's a crime, really. I have since switched over to imgur, but I can't really do much about this post.

If you PM me, I can answer questions directly, but I don't really check the thread often.

DISREGARD PREVIOUS POST.

I retract my previous statement. Photobucket has actually updated their site and users can retrieve their photos for free. AllI did was to reclaim my account and the pictures were restored.

Hope this thread continues to help retrofitters!
