Default Quad retrofit D2S 4.0 and Mini H1's on 04/05 Bolbeye - Build Thread.

Hey guys, I am working through my third retrofit for my Blobeye 04 WRX. The last two times I was so engrossed in the process and trying to do my best, I didn't take any pictures. The set on my car sold locally to a guy I know and he paid upfront so I could build the set I'd dreamt up.

The first two where simple Morimoto MIni H1's, Bi-Xenon projectors, demon eyes, and that was it. For anyone interested, this is about as drop in as it gets. I trimmed one metal ring, with a dremel, and didn't cut or sand anything, period. Get rotational alignment set and put back together. The MH1's have a threaded shaft and do require cutting out the housing and using extended screws and nuts to mount and adjust alignment.

None the less...

The set I am building now has the newest D2S 4.0 3" lens projectors in the old "low beam" spot, and the smaller 2.5" MH1 projectors in the old high beam spots.

Difficult isn't the word. Hardest part that took me more time than the cutting was being able to wrap my head around how I was gonna accomplish what I was trying to do, centering a "floating" projector, and aligning everything.

I'm not done yet, and still have only been working on one light, but conceptually I understand where I am going.

Here are some pics. I'll continue to update and give lengthier descriptions of what's happening.

The one on the right in the picture is a Mini H1 7.0. The one on the left in that picture is a D2S 4.0
