Black Flame Customs HID Acura TL Projector retrofit

So after destroying a set of headlights trying to fit the Acura TL projectors into our headlights I decided to get another set of headlights and send off all the parts to Black Flame Customs to get it done properly. To anyone trying a retrofit the TL's are more advanced retro's and I found out the hard way that it was beyond my skill. There's some great retro's done on here by other members with other projectors and I would definetly go with other projectors if I was gonna do this retro again.

Black Flame just finished up mine and they are on their way back to me but I thought I would post some initial pic's and then get some more up once I get them back and installed.

I have been thinking about attempting a second retro in the near future with the TL's. What kind of difficulties did you run into?

I was trying to put them in with the OEM solenoids on them. The Retrofit Source has just released something called the TL-R which is a lot smaller solenoid and that's what Black Flame used for my retro. Our headlights are HUGE but the TL's seemed even bigger I got them into out housings but couldn't get them to aim properly.

It might be easier now with the TL-R's but this was also my first attempt at retrofitting.

I will say that the pic's that Black Flame sent me with the pattern for the TL's look well worth the money spent on this retro.

If you don't mind me asking what did the charge for your retro?

Those are freaking badass! I like how they lightly tinted the amber lense so it's still legal too, I got chewed out by a highway patrol because I had that lens blacked out lol.
I bet you can't wait to get those on the truck!
