Nice work. Clean cutoff from what I could see in the pics.

Re: real HID retrofit in WJ

I've actually been looking at yours on Flickr for a while now. Congratulations on the retro. I'm assuming from all the various picture stages you did your own work so right on. FX-R's are sick but I still have a spot in my heart reserved for TL's The light output from your FX-R's look awesome. Which version did you use 1.0, 2.0, or 1.1? How long did your retro take and how long has it been done? Also, How do you go about aiming the FX-R's? I've never used them.

All in all I like your result but I would've taken that amber strip out of the Laredo headlight or did a retro with a chrome limited one.

Nice! reminds me of my old retro


I'm glad to see more guys doing retrofits as opposed to just a plug-and-play bulb

Nobody said there's a problem. I was only curious why you are advertising for them with your signature. I figured you might have had a greater connection to them than the average customer.

1) I like your retro and have seen it before in pics while randomly browsing the web. You'e the one that did the quad bi-xenon on the WJ right? E-55's are alright, I like their table-top high beam but I like the FX-45's a little better for the size range.

2) What shrouds are those?

3) What are you referring to with Gen III ballasts? We talking Philips or Matsushita Electric Works?

4) I'm surprised you were using the stock fresnel lens. Did you ever consider doing a clear lens swap when doing that retro?

I originally purchased Photovision because I saw the promo code in someones sig. I was grateful to get it for that price, and thought maybe someone else will feel the same.

Thanks. Nope, but I know the one you're talking about

Paying it forward, I can understand that. Since you mentioned of your photography interest/career, what Digital SLR do you prefer to use?

Also, since you're not the one with the quad bi-xenon I guess someone ripped off your photo and made it theirs.

I actually did check out, I like the layout; It's Clean and functional.
I'm not too into photography but have a friend who just graduated this year from Full Sail in Photography and he keeps me up-to-date on that stuff.
