HID retrofit build

So I built a set of lights. Retrofitting projectors and HIDs into a set of SpecD tuning headlights I bought. Bought all my parts from theretrofitsource. They are badass!! The light output is a tremendous over stock. It was a somewhat tedious project but worth it in the end.

Mounted projector



Test fire alignment and cutoff line.



Reassembled with shrouds.

Complete on truck




Now the lens seemed to affect the cutoff after reassembly and blur the line it’s not as crisp. And the damn alignment is off easy to fix though. I’m pretty sure the blurred line is being caused by the bubble in the lens in front of the headlight bowl.

Nice looks like mine. Had a buddy of mine install some Acura TL Bi-level xenos in my headlight. Hard to go back to halogen.

Nice work.

Thanks.. Acura projectors are awesome just a little harder to get to fit right.

Looks good. I did the same thing. People at the retrofit source are awesome. And to say its tedious.... well, thats just an understatement.
