I wonder if the original ones I posted are any good. I don't love this ****box enough right now to blow close to $400 on the lights.
I'm interested in doing this conversion but know very little about any of the newer style lights. Where are the ones you had the picture of? I agree about the price point.I wonder if the original ones I posted are any good. I don't love this ****box enough right now to blow close to $400 on the lights.
Your lights look really good. Thanks for posting the pics! My trouble is there are so many options from the link you posted. How do you know what options to choose? I know I'm showing my ignorance. Sorry.The only thing you need to watch is the size of the projector. The set I used barley fit inside the housing when I put the lens back on.
Yes, it would. That’s what I’m doing.I've got an old set of lenses with the reflective surface gone on the inside of them, I wonder if replacing them with a projector style lens like this and using an HID bulb will work??
Honestly I have no idea as to brand. A friend of mine came over while I was removing one of the lights to fix a broke mounting plate. He’s like “let’s do a retrofit” and showed up 30 min later with these 2.5’s and a cheapo Amazon 35w 5000k H1 kit. The surrounds were originally black and looked horrid. I sprayed them down with flat grey plastic etching primer so they’d hide better
Don’t even worry about that. Just leave them be. It’ll look more factory keeping the reflective coating. I’ll post more photos once it’s done.Cool! I could even use a aluminum engine paint to paint the backs of the lenses after taking them apart, just for looks since they really aren't gnna actually be used for light refraction! I could use a tint, but it wouldn't match the other lenses, besides the cop's prolly wouldn't like that...
