Retrofitting Guide

Would anyone be interested in an updated guide with more pictures for retrofitting lights?

Honestly anybody can do it! And depending what route you want to take it might not cost you too much!

If you got the entire Morimoto Mini H1 kit with the upgraded bulbs it would cost $300 flat, they are currently running coupon codes for x% off purchases and there is always a code for free shipping.

Anyways the reason I ask is I will be doing my second set of Focus lights and I did not take many pictures of the original because Slammed 2.0 already had a guide.

Let me know guys, $300 gets you some wonderful lights!

My next set will be perfected compared to my first set. Since I don't have to rush it I will have a beautiful blue cutoff which will take some playing around. They will be perfect horizontal beams and they will look good!

Now that I've seen it done with the oem lens insert intact, I'm very interested in doing it.

The new one I am about to do I will be leaving the 2 bars in the headlight as long as they do not interfere with the beam. I will take more pictures along the way.

Then I will either fix the old ones or retrofit them into my old car that my sister is about to put on the road. The lights in that thing suck, so that would help her out a lot!

I will do it, even if it helps one person it's cool

I like having multiple guides to go with. You can see who spends more time, and learn different ways of doing things.

TRS has not shipped my stuff and neither have the ebayers selling new headlights. Dropped another $350 between the 2 assemblies and 2 new projectors.

For sure, do it. I have an extra set of assemblies and will be attempting it by the new year. The more information I have the better.

I'd do a video but it would take too long lol.
Easier to just snap some pictures and do a description for each one..
