Cheaper that $90 for the pair with all the needed parts? How cheap are ya?!?!?thanks ben
oh trust me though, i love the stuff at TRS, but im trying to find a cheaper way to do my retrofit. and ive heard from so many peple that the "fx-r" which is what i was looking at, comes from an infinity fx35, so i was just curious if i could go to a salvage yard and pull the projectors from the fx35, but i was also just curious as to what else comes with the bi-xenons that i could use as a second option.
pretty cheap, haha. but i go to a salvage yard close to my house quite a bit, and they basically just let me roam the yard with my tools until i find stuff i need. and they keep some late models up there. i was up there about 2 weeks ago, and they had a new camaro that some kid wrecked, and a couple newish acuras and things of the like. but im sure i can find a fx, pull the headlights, bust them open, and rip the projector out, yeah?Cheaper that $90 for the pair with all the needed parts?

Seriously... I like your style, I'm a big fan of junkyarding, too. but unless you find an FX @ pull-a-part, most junkyards will want about that much for a headlight assembly anyhow. PaP doesn't keep much late model stuff.
Thanks... I want to do another set with higher quality housings and outer lens. The ones I used were pretty crappy and the lens are not optically correct. But still get great light output and a nice cutoff line.Good job on the retro Ben. I think I know what my next project will be once I finish my retro. Gonna use the MH1's and put them in some 4x6 housings with 3000k bulbs and have a nice set of auxiliary lights on my push bar.
Do you have any more pics of the headlights in the truck with the grille on? I see you had to move the headlight brackets out with spacers, and I'd like to see how that looks from a side perspective.Here are some pics of my Blazer at HIDPlanet although I think you have to create an account to view them, but it is free.
I'll take some more pics (it's raining here today so later...LOL). I was worried about how it would look too... however for the most part you really don't notice that the lights are protruding. As far as how I did it.Do you have any more pics of the headlights in the truck with the grille on?

Also, do you have a write up on how you did it and what you did?
