who manufactures these? is a HID conversion possible? (some makers say no right away). just curious
04-25-2005, 01:49 PM
Eagle Eyes is the manufacture of the Projector Set and HID is totally cool to use in them. Let me know if you have any other questions.

hey, i bought a set of JDM's off of ebay about a month ago. I hooked them up, and i mean there is only one way too hook up the reg lights RIGHT? and well, now my inside lights are the dim lights and the outside lights are the bright lights. I think something is wrong with these lights. I bought them from a place called 4caroption.com, and i cant seem to get a answer from them. If these are wrong, can i fix them or do anything to help this out?
04-26-2005, 03:03 PM
You are correct, the outside light should be your low beams/projector and the high beam really just the bulb. Is this just on one side?
As for rewiring them...the only think I can suggest is taking apart the adapter that hooks into your existing harness. I don't know exactly how much electrical experience you might have but if you can remove the terminals and reinstall them into the opposite spots on the plug. this should turn it around for you. This is just a shot at what is wrong since I am not exactly looking at it. Hope it works out for you.
04-26-2005, 03:12 PM
Its actually both of them..thats why at first i thought it was the way it was suppose to be...but after people got bright lighted....i got to wondering. plus they came on with my fog lights and the projector lights dont come on with the fog lights....i think i might be able to rewire the adaptor. i have a cousin that knows all about electrical stuff...but for my sake...am i rewireing the hook-up terminal on the lights or on my car? & exactly how hard are they to take apart? acually now that i think of it....the terminals on the lights are actually loose....like you can take them out pretty easy...

Can't you get these on ebay for like 175 or something?

James I am very interested in buying some halo projectors. However, I must see a picture of them and I must know that they are compatible with a plug-n-play HID kit. I have looked on the net. for eagle eye projectors but, all I can find are off-road foglight projectors for jeeps. I realy want to see these projectors. I've seen some by other companies and they tell that theirs aren't compatible with HIDs because the HID bulbs are too large for the housing in their halos. Does your halos look like other halo projectors and and is the housing large enough to hold HID lights?
04-26-2005, 10:48 PM
Hey whats up guys, im new to the forums. James, i honestly would like to know which kind of projectors are better to get: the open lenses, or the closed ones. I would like to know the pros and cons of both. Also if there are any owners out there that have these headlights, it would be nice to hear your feedback. Thanks alot.

Sorry for the late reply, was sick yesterday.
Ok Eagle Eye is the manufacture, much like TYC and Inpro. They are the ones who have the patents or make specific models and such. For example InPro does the tail lights for a lot of trucks (Escalade, Explorer etc) you probably would not see the name since in the consumer world the only one that markets their name popular is TYC which is a distributor in its own right.
As for the HID yes they will fit. I have tried to upload the pic of the projectors in my photo gallery but the moderator must have deleted it because it is not there anymore.
So here is the link from our distributor http://www.kaseilights.com/products.asp?page=1 and you should be able to see the Chrome by selecting "ford" and then Projectors. At the top of the page is the chrome.

Not too sure what you mean by open lens. Most people purchase projectors for 2 reasons. They like the look with the Halo Rings or they plan on eventually getting a true HID system.
The later is the reason there is such a controversy with HID from the gov't. HID aftermarket in a car not designed for it will provide tons of glare to the on coming traffic. This is only if the car manufacture never developed the headlights for HID. So when you put in the Projector Headlights you focus your beam more so to the road and not distract the on coming traffic. This is not a cure all, since there will still be glare, it just reduces it a lot and lessens the likelihood of any problems.
Additionally HID is color customizable. Depending upon the K rating gets you certain type of color in the headlights.
Does this answer your question?

hey james, have you seen the quality of the wiring, like is it heavy duty enough to withstand what it's supposed to do? and secondly, would we be required to wire in a resistor to prolong the life of the LED, similar to what has been discussed on this forum before (can't find the link, search inept). and how's the fit? sorry to bug you with all of these questions, but i was just wondering. i'm going to see if i can score some cash to purchase these, and i was just curious. thanks a lot man
04-27-2005, 03:35 PM
Thanks for that James. What i was talking about with the open and closed lens is that the open ones are paintable, and the closed ones have plastic over it like the stock lights (only with halos inside). Im just wondering which ones are more styleish, durable, and how the price is and do the bulbs come with the housings? Thanks alot...
04-27-2005, 03:43 PM
Yes the wiring is not cheapo, I know exactly what you are asking and it is fine. Secondly, wiring in a resistor in series with the LED would be adding resistance hence you might not reach the required voltage of LED to work in a 12V system. There already is a resistor in-line with the LEDs. I really would like to read that thread you were referring too, to see what the logic behind it was. Finally, the lights are made to fit OEM specs with no problems.
Please continue to ask questions, it is no problem and for sure people who are viewing this thread my learn something or have that same question.
04-27-2005, 04:04 PM
Well I was way off in my assumption. If you choose to paint then the quality is entirely up to you. This is obviously different than when the plastic is formed and colored (black or chrome). It is more of a choice to whom is doing the work. Which one is better, up to the buyer but there is more chance for error in coloring it yourself than just buying the standard options. You could always take it to a paint shop to have it done but that is more $$$.
I would also give the both set types the same strength rating. Maybe a little more to the non-paintable but they both would have to withstand impact from rocks and such to be safe.
Yes all projectors come with a standard watt bulb set.
Thanks for the space,[:D]
04-27-2005, 11:56 PM
James I'm in! I want the chrome halos for my 2000 SE! How many more people are needed for the list? Well, just let me know when to send the $$$.
04-28-2005, 12:39 AM
i got my set on ebay for 200.....yes, they are wired different, switched the brights and regular. this is cause they are wired for the euro people...or so im told.
05-05-2005, 06:10 PM
James what type of bulbs can be used in the halos?
05-05-2005, 07:22 PM
Do you mean the bulb size?
05-05-2005, 07:46 PM
they are h1's
05-05-2005, 11:47 PM
so just for the different wiring they are $100 more??? in a "group deal"?
05-06-2005, 09:05 AM
Actally I have been selling them at the $280 price shipped. So I looked on Ebay and found it to be in the ranges of $210-250 shipped. The difference is yes the wiring is right and I am here for my customers with any questions and such. I will not dispute Ebay has excellent deals at times but how easy is it to speak with someone with issues? With every post my contact info and phone # is posted for anyone with questions or issues.
Feel free to contact me with any issues as always!
05-06-2005, 10:30 AM
he is right, i bought one of them good deals off ebay. well i paid almost $300 cause i thought they would be the best and no mess ups. well i get them and i drove around for a week and i was bright lighting everyone cause the wiring was wrong on them, so now i have to go back and rewire them or do something to them. i cant get in touch with the people i bought them from and there actually a company, i got ahold of a guy once and he talked to me like i was stupid and didnt know what i was talking about. i think it looks pretty dumb with my dim lights on and i cant use my fog lights....my opinion. So if he is gonna help the customer and get his product right thats enough for me from my experience on ebay.
05-26-2005, 09:19 AM
hey ppl, this has been covered many times already. all you do is switch the red wire and blue wire inside the housing..it takes about 1 minute 42 seconds to do. ABSOLUTLEY NO NEED to buy a wiring harness or anything...thats just absurd.
As for bulbs...the inside are H3's and the outside are H1's...
Covering price....280 shipped is rediculous...for a vendor on a group buy you should be able to do ALOT better then that. Especially when Ebay sells the same thing for 200 shipped...i bought mine for 210 shipped and they've lasted almost a year now and still going strong. So, word of advice...key to getting group buys is to offer lower price for multiple purchases.....but what do I know...I'm just a jarhead.[cheers]
good luck anyway
