Re: DIY: x70 Projector Retrofit

I gave up the lens sanding project and ordered new clear glass headlight assemblies from Amazon.

Re: DIY: x70 Projector Retrofit

ecbsykes - How were you able to buy (cheap) clear lens headlight assemblies from IPD? I can't see any on their website.
I started sanding my old headlight lens.

Re: DIY: x70 Projector Retrofit

Who sells the 2" sanding discs needed for this project?
Are your original high beams still operational?
Are the HID lights wired in conjunction with your high beams or are they completely separate?
Do I need (is it good to get) something called Canbus:H7?

Re: DIY: x70 Projector Retrofit

Thanks for the updated pictures. Are those pictures taken with the fog lights on?
What was wrong with the original ones that you used first?
What is in there now and where did you get it from?

Re: DIY: x70 Projector Retrofit

First, when I saw this DIY thing here, I was all exited that finally I have an affordable fix for my dim lights ... but now it seems like a $300 Morimoto project.

Re: DIY: x70 Projector Retrofit

The deeper I dig, the more I find. I read that somebody had a bad experience with the cheap projector that I was looking at on Amazon. He said that it started fading just after three months. Another finding: I'm not sure that the light pattern is acceptable on picture #12 (car parked in front of gar...

To: ecbsykes - Where did you buy the Morimoto Mini H1 kit from? Is it 35w or 55w? What else were you considering and how did you end up with Morimoto?

I'm thinking of buying the following. Has anybody any experience with that kind of setup?
