So I got some interest in my headlights from a couple members and thought I would throw up a more detailed thread about it, since I will also be re-doing them this weekend.
The back story...
I bought the car w/ a salvaged title after I sold my '00 2dr Blazer. When I got the car the OEM HID equipment were all gone and in its place was a very shady install of modified halogen bulbs, melted sockets and exposed wiring. The headlights were yellow as hell and a reflector bowl broken. Originally, I had planned to just put back in the OEM stuff but then figured I might as well do a retrofit since I have all the stuff and needed to open up the headlight anyways. This would be my 5th retro I've worked on.
My Probe GTS I had b4 the Blazer...
My Blazer...swapped out the sucky ebay projectors
My bro's Saturn Vue which is the donor for my newest swap...
I will be doing the current setup over but currently v.1 consists of...
Morimoto MH1 projectors (v1.0)
Mini Gatling gun shrouds...painted
Morimoto 3five bulbs
Denso (Lexus) ballasts...rewired with amp connectors and 9005/9006 plugs
painted shields black for a subtle look
LED city lights
OEM I30t headlights cleared
Eurolite 3k foglight bulbs
How the lights look when I bought the car...
I used a heatgun to take apart the lights the trick to this is never leave the gun in one place too long or it will start to melt or warp the plastic. I started off first by clearing out the orange lens of course.
Then I had to repair the broken reflector bowl...I re-purposed brackets from a Memphis Audio amp bridge to fix it, not pretty bu the bezel hides it.
