My HID Projector Retrofit

Hey guys,

I just installed my Morimoto Mini-H1 Projectors from theretrofitsource.com. I used the 5000K bulbs. I bought a set of chrome lights from xtraspin and painted the trim black. I opened them up using a bunch of different threads for info:

I couldn't be happier with the way they turned out!

Here are a few shots from today and tonight, sorry about the raindrops in the night shots, it's been raining off and on all day:

Very nice. I am looking for something a bit more plug and play. I tend to break $hit when I start doing what you did. I also would like to have LED running lights.

Very nice though. Good work!

Very impressive! Can I ask what all the parts cost?

I'd like to compare the price to aftermarket projectors.
