My DIY HID Headlight Projectors

I just finished up doing a DIY HID projectors. I bought new stock headlight housings, projectors and HID bulbs/ballast.

I currently run HIDs in the stock hosings and was looking to improve even more. Plus my head lights now are not as clear as they use to be. Cost me about $300 for every thing.

I am still waiting on the bulbs/ballast arrive. It turned out ok for my first time doing this.

Retrofitsource.com for the projectors

DDMTuning.com for the HID bulbs/ballast

A1 auto for the stock headlight assembly.


I'll give you the short version. Pretty much you bake (230+- degrees) the headlights in the oven for about 10-15 mins until the sealant softens . After take out and pry it apart.

Cut the back of the light flat. The projector goes into the headlight bulb hole and has a nut that holds it on the back side (the projector is threaded on one side) Then assemble the headlight, bake to reseal it.

Longest part is waiting for the headlights to heat up in the oven. Google it and you will find more in depth how to.

Looks great! What projector and bulb/ballast did you actually buy? Part #s?

What do you mean by "cut the back of the light flat"? Actually use a knife/tool and cut the plastic housing smooth to be able to create a tight seal correct?

Is this a Hi and Low beam set up?

Finally, does the ballast plug into the factory wiring? or just wire the ballast in simply? How does it wire in?

Sorry for all the questions but I've been thinking of picking up a set of A1 Harley lights and doing this, so I am very intrigued, and I think other people wouldn't mind learning a little more on lighting! Thanks!
