Projector Retrofit Questionnext project
Posted 09 March 2012 - 04:53 PM
Here's my TRS shopping list:
PnP Upgrade kit: Bi-Xenon
AMP/D2S Ballast Adapters
Morimoto 3Five 4300k DS2 Bulbs
Morimoto Mini Bi-xenon (D2S) Projectors
Gatling Gun Shrouds
OCI Butyl Rubber Glue
Maybe get the Morimoto CCFL Angel Eyes to put behind the Gatling Guns
(I am a firm believer that angel eyes should only be on BMW's, but they had a picture of the CCFL behind the gatling on one of the install pdf's and it looked awesome!)
How does the list look?
I'll be using my existing DDM 55w Slim Ballasts and relay harness.

Hopefully someone can confirm about the fitment of the Morimoto Mini projectors. I've wanted to tackle this project for a while, but been waiting to get a second set of housings in case something goes wrong with cutting the reflectors....if the mini's fit w/o cutting then im going for it!

Here's the install pdf that led me to believe that there's no cutting involved with the mini's:
There are two sets of kits, the D2S and H1....i'd want the D2S right (looks like it comes with an adapter)

But Nick (VIPfreak) said everything perfectly
Any other questions you have?

what do you mean about evil/demon eyes? Im still undecided about putting the halos behind the gatling shrouds (not sure about how often i'd have them on)....but this looks too cool to pass up:

I'm too lazy to search for his build thread but it was a red LED behind the projector lens. Don't know how it was wired, but I'm sure it was a simple job.

Morimoto Mini H1 bi-xenon Projectors
Mini Gatling Gun Shrouds
H1 4300k bulbs
According to TRS the H1's are a better choice because:
More colorful cutoff line
The threaded shaft of the H1 is smaller (22mm vs the DS2 being 35mm)
After doing some research on the CCFL Halo's, i'm going to pass on them. They seem prone to breaking/malfunction (according to some reviews on HIDplanet.com)
I'm going to pull my ballasts from my fogs (35w DDM Raptor) and use those for my projectors. Is there an adapter needed to make the H1's work with the Raptor ballasts?
