Hey I just wanted to know if anyone attempted to install projectors in their headlights as I would like to try. Light bars are illegal in my country (or at least you'll be harassed by every cop you see cause they think it's illegal) and I don't want to just put HIDs in my housing and be known as "that douche in the Pajero" lol. I wanna do it the right way and retrofit since I'll have to self quarantine for 2 weeks when I have to take my flight back to my home country. So what better way to spend it than to work for 14 days straight on my baby?laugh

But for anyone who has installed projectors, I would like to know what projector was used so I don't make a big mistake and buy something that won't fit. I was looking towards the Morimoto mini H1 or D2S (Made for small or large headlights respectively). If anyone has any other inexpensive projector retrofits that would be nice as well!

Also! To anyone seeing this do you have the depth and width of the headlight by chance? That can also help my choice as I'm currently not home (had to travel back for school now I've been stuck ever since) so I'm not physically with my SUV.

 

Thanks!

There is no right way.

Any & every retrofit of HID or LED lamps into a housing designed for halogen lamps is illegal in most countries.

What I plan to do

 

 

I guess I got back too late cause the link doesn't work sad

But I will be getting another set of headlamps to test my idea for projector conversion. Antigua's laws are pretty weird (that or not enforced correctly LOL), I've never seen anything specifically about HID conversions but I know in a reflector housing it'll probably get me a ticket so I'm preparing to experiment on some spare headlights and install projectors like one I've seen online.

 

Right now, the tourist season is coming so I might not be able to do much until May 21 but I'll keep you updated on my progresslaugh
