Teaser for my new project
 
So guys, what do you get when you mix 02 Facelift euro headlights

And Authentic BMW E46 shrouds?

Well I don't know either, but it's gonna be badass [wiggle]

This is just a teaser thread, I intend on making a progress thread after I get the bulbs and ballasts.

My plans are as follows:

*Paint headlight housings gloss black
*Clear turn signal
*LED strip for running light
*Painting the shrouds Teal to match my valve cover

The last two I'm still on the fence about doing, so some input as to how the LEDs should look and if I should paint the shrouds would be awesome. Maybe you guys could photoshop my headlight pic to give me some ideas. [cheers]

Keep the shrouds chrome and leave out the led strips. It should look more "authentic" that way.

Good luck with the retrofit! [cheers]

cant wait to see this. i was thinking about doing this to my stock headlights but havent made up my mind yet

Should be interesting. I say paint the shroud, and if You don't like it, paint it something else.

Man thats going to look great. The LR3's are great performing projectors, cant wait to see it done. What kinda of bulbs are you going with?

Focus'd 03-21-2010 12:01 PM

You should do a how-to I've always wanted to know how you guys do it, I want to get some facelift headlights my self and retro-fit them too. I just don't know how or where to get the parts or what would work.

If you're going to sell the amber lenses let me know I need a set for my Anzo Retrofit project.

woot! i cant wait to see this!

Kauai Guy 03-21-2010 02:34 PM

Sure thing, I can sell you the signals whenever I get my clear ones.

And as far as bulbs go, still deciding on the 85122 and 85122+.

My process is going to be a little slow, I need to nab a set of stock headlights so I can run those temporarily. I'm also going to be retrofitting my old FX35's into my friends RSX Type-S this Tuesday, so I'll see how that comes out since I'm going to mount my projectors the same way. I'll definitely do a how-to and take lots of pictures.

Only other progress I made thus far was order my STi-R lenses from TRFS.

Excellent let me know when and what your paypal is. I'll pay you gladly for the lenses.
