Re: HID retrofit on the 70th

He speaks the truth. I personally was hooked after my first retrofit in a 2000 Celica with FX-R projectors. Also, I have seen the factory WK2 HID light, they're not what I was looking for, they...

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

Thanks, they are just little vacuum elbows, you can get them at the local auto parts. I put them there to help the headlamp breath and keep bugs and dust out. I have seen other OEM assemblies with a...

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

You're right, adding vents is not common, it could be a combination of both. I removed them to inspect and reseal them, since I was getting a little condensation inside plus I wasn't satisfied 100%...

Re: HID retrofit on the 70th

Re: HID retrofit on the 70th

I just took my headlamps back off a few days ago to reseal them, seal the bulb area, and add an extra breathing port at the bottom of...

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

I used a Dremel with a small cutting wheel, but I didn't cut the lens, I cut the part of the housing that overlaps the lens when installed.

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)
