It looks slick, only problem is I have to have the side reflectors due to state law I believe. I do like the only chrome part is the high beams. I will probably take that guys idea and then mod it even more. I am thinking of having an orange LED ring replacing the little orange parking light. Now that will look slick...to bad I can't have red in front of the car. haha

You could always just buy these. Probably cost about 700 bucks for the set.

Bad part is I don't know how the projectors are with the light output. Quality looks good but it is just pictures. Maybe someone can buy them and test them out? :)

I could make you some..but I did an overall cost on my build which is about 480 bucks. (I already have the projectors from a previous car) My build is going to be the batman look, keeping reflectors, and buying transparent Gatling shrouds which will have an orange LED ring behind it. Again it depends on what you want, ect.

I am just looking for a simple HID projector with a high beam solenoid cutoff shield. The stock high beams can stay as is. I had a pretty simple set of retrofits on my 2005 Chevy cobalt and they were the best headlights I have ever used. I think those used a Mercedes projector if I remember correctly. Those were $500 i think. I would pay for a decent set, I have no problems with that. I just don't have the time or space to do them myself. I will be keeping my eyes open on here though. Plus I am in no hurry as I just purchased the car

I'm going to start my retro now after seeing that guy in Russia with the batman thing. I'll have to get a spare set of headlights to use while I do the retro.

Stay tuned...

Send me a pm with what you want exactly. I would need to gather how much everything is going to cost and send you a cost estimate. I probably will be able to take a Saturday to do the entire retro which would be fine since I would be making some extra cash. :P

Good luck! Are you doing exactly what he is doing or changing it around a bit?
