So I finally got around to making a set of projector headlights.
I used TYC aftermarket headlights and Morimoto Mini H1 Projectors.
The TYC lights were very difficult to open, It took me 4 hours heating them at 300 for 10 minutes to get 3 minutes working time. I did that numerous times. I chewed up the bottom edge on one of them with the tools, But you can't see it with them mounted on the Jeep so I wasn't to concerned.
Also, once they were open I had to continue to bake the buckets and the lens individually to warm up the remaining sealant to remove it, My finger tips are burnt on both hands, It was a really shitty experience! haha
I bought 4300K H1 bulbs, and 6000k H1 bulbs to see which I like more. I liked the 4300k, But it didn't match my switchbacks very well so as of last night they are 6000k.
I chose to not paint anything, I like the OEM look they have. Marcus' headlights turned out so well that I was inspired to leave the orange reflector. I know it's not for everyone, and some might wonder why I did it this way, But I really like them. I have most of the chrome trim that came on my Limited still so they still match the theme, although black bezels wouldn't have looked bad either. Maybe one day if I dechrome the Jeep i'll open them up and paint them.
I sealed them with 3M windo-weld, and then skimmed the edges with GE clear Silicone II. Busted a couple of tabs, but it didn't seem to matter.
Thanks to 2for3 and everyone else that has done a write up on here. It helped a lot. I appreciate it!
I'll try to get some night shots of the cut-off tonight, for now it's day pics only. Enjoy!
Oh and before anyone says it, I know... The fog lights have to go. Next is going to be retrofiting Blazer mini sealed projectors in the stock fog housing. with 3000k bulbs.
