Projector Retrofit Project

Well I got my box of goodies from Retrofit source. I did take all the parts out of the boxes today and I can tell you that they look like high quality stuff. The packaging is very nice, everything is labeled nicely, and they provide separate instructions for each different item you purchased. Not to mention they have tutorials on their website offering advice for different installs. Their customer service with my initial purchase was on point, compared to some other places I've purchased products. You will definitely pay more for what you buy from them as opposed to buying from eBay, but take it from me the stuff from eBay is all junk and the customer service goes hand in hand. I've spent more money returning things that were either incorrect or didn't work than if I would have just spent the extra money buying form a company like TRS.

I did test out the LED Angel Eyes they sent me and HOLY $h!t they are bright! I also got some LED side view strips to put in the headlight housings. It's gonna be a pretty interesting install and I'm expecting it to look pretty bad@$$ once it's all said and done. I'll keep you guys posted on my progress.

Turns out the glue was in the bottom of the box. They put a piece of cardboard on top of it to secure it and foam peanuts on top of that. Guess I can start this project next week.

Sweet, I am excited to watch! I was about go tell you to look in the bottom of the box lol. Post step by step pics, hopefully after a while there will be a few retrofit threads around here for people to use as guides. Can't wait to see how yours come out. One thing I wish I would've done is use the "jnc method" for perfecting rotational adjustment for the projectors. Search that on hidplanet.com, that will let you adjust them so that they are down to the T on alignment.

What did you use on the back of the shroud to seal up between the projector and the hole you cut?

I'll try to get some pics posted up tmrw. I'm taking my time here and doing as much research as I can before I start this project. I don't have a second set of lights so my project will need to be done in a day or two. That being said I'm trying to make sure I do all my research first so I know exactly what I want to do and how I'm going to do it. Considering the JNC method and painting those brackets black along with the shroud. The only thing about that JNC is those ugly brackets. The Angel Eye LED rings are really bright, and I am trying to get an idea of how I want to mount the LED strips I got.

The shroud hides the brackets. I have a set of headlights for sale too if you'd like to buy them. Just let me know
