My ST170 retrofit progress thread.
 
Okay here are my chrome St170's (aka facelifts) that I am retrofitting with projectors. This is a progress thread, so bear with me til I'm finished with them.

This was on the inside of the headlight lens. I cleaned it up so I don't have to deal with it anymore!

Are you gonna mess with the output like jvx did?? When he got done playing with them the output came out great

Kauai Guy 04-09-2010 04:09 PM

Actually the whole reason why the output wasn't great to begin with is because the bulb wasn't sitting flush with the projector. After you trim the base of the bulb it fit's great and the cutoff is straight and hotspot is centered.

I got the projectors from The Retrofit Source. It's called the Morimoto Minis, but it's also called the Mini H1. The H1 HID kit that is needed I got from DDM Tuning. This retrofit was less than $200 total.

Just make sure that the projector can bolt into your housing. So far, I know it fits H7, H4, and 9006.
