08 Projectors painted

What do you guys think? Finally finished up this project. Painted the reflector bowls matte black and tinted the amber reflector. I will have some more shots of them on the jeep soon.

Oh absolutely! Were yours factory headlights or replicas? I ask because im wondering how hard it was to bake and open yours. Mine were replicas and after 7 mins at 220 in the oven, they pulled right apart by hand.

I plan on either making another set or opening these up and adding the morimoto d2s projector from the retrofit source.

mine were OEM, from a former member. It was sealed with the black rubber making it easier.

I'm also wanting to do another set..this time leaving the turn signals benzel unpainted...wit the white switchbacks against the black benzels it doesnt match up with the projectors. i also have white halos and want the rgb colorshift halos.

Re: 08 Projectors painted

Nice, its addicting once you start. I want to find a place that sells the replicas for cheap and if any members want them opened and painted I would help them. I know DCCustoms does this already and he does amazing work. Just something for me to do on the side.

I think im going to get into the retrofitting aspect more though. I think putting some better projectors in there would make this project 100% better. Im going to try and make a custom bracket for the mini D2S projectors so they can bolt up to the stock projector housing.

What is your hid setup? I have the DDM tuning 6k bulbs, 35 watt ballasts, and TRS 9006 relay harness. It works well and I have it aimed correctly but I think with better projectors and bulbs Ill be able to get more light further down the road.

Re: 08 Projectors painted

hah yep, once you open 1 set, it get so much simpler. Im running stock HID setup, with the D1S ballast and bulbs.
I REALLY miss the DDM 55k ballasts tho.Those suckers were BRIGHT.

Havent looked into retrofitting but i wish they made some projectors for the fogs. I for 1 will def be interested.
