These Headlamps look great! any video on how you made em?
Place on wtb retrofit kit?
Here's an update:
SPPC CCFL Headlights were taken out.
Completely soaked (standing water) in the ballast boxes.
Return and refund issued.
Ballasts pulled and dried. (Luckily they still worked!)
Decided to try the Spec D Tuning (Black) Turning and DRL White & Amber LED w/ HID Projector units.
Access the link below to view the new look. Hope to have more pics soon.
All in all, super satisfied and would recommend these over the SPPC brand. Much better seal around the lenses, add a modern technology look to the car, and restored my overall love for this car again.
These are kind of rubbing off on me because of the LED strip but I'm still iffy on the projector part. Good find btw!!
So following up on the post,
The night time output on the SPPC's are actually much better than expected.
-Not sure if this was more a result of replacing the HID Bulbs or new headlight housings or a combination of both, but the HID lights are brighter than I have seen in years.
For the not so good:
Literally after 10 minutes of running the HALOS the other day, the left HALO will start to flicker on the passenger side and goes out.
- Contacted SPPC and they believe it is the HALO Ballast. Go figure... They are sending me a new HALO Ballast at no charge, but still, having to remove the front bumper, pull out the headlight, and swap ballasts was not something I wanted to do for a 3rd time now.
While I have been incredibly busy lately, I will try and add more (better) photos once I have a little more time on my hands. Overhauling the suspension this week.
As you can see, there is still more manual level adjustments that need to be done.
All in all, it is difficult to say if the quality / quantity of light during night-time is better or the same for two reasons:
1.) I really dont drive much during the night time or after dusk
2.) The OEM Headlamps were so hazed and I was using the original stock HID Bulbs (Couldn't believe they lasted for 12 years!)
On a side note* - The GF did say (while she was in the car) the new headlight setup was notably brighter... Or in her words "Incredibly Brighter".
