Hey all,

Just finished up my projector headlight retrofit. It came out great.

I have not see anyone crack open the dogs though.. I really wanna try t and put another halo in there.

I can't figure out what size halo or if it's even smart to try.. I know they are glass

I haven't; I ended up making a custom replacement housing for my foglight retrofit.

Either way, there are at least 2 clips (see one above my thumb in the picture below, and another one almost opposite of it).



After you unclip that, you should be able to attempt to heat the sides to separate the lens from the housing.

Alternatively, you can get a generic 7" round unit and make a custom mount. Some of them are quite easy to separate.

You'll need to fabricate your own mount and alignment mechanism though.

Wow! Thank you for the information,
I am just looking for a diameter of halo ring to buy for the fogs. 120mm? 140mm?

The 7" OE foglight housing should be able to fit close to 6.5" inside (although I haven't fitted or measured mine specifically for that), so either one should fit.

So that is roughly 165mm.

Superbrightleds.com has them for $28 a piece! Geez.. maybe I will hold off a bit, that's quite the price for some more halos!

I'm going to photoshop some in there to see how I like it. I'll post that pic up as soon as I'm done

LED rings can be questionable; if you find something at a good price, it may not be built to last.
