eBay halo projector HIDs, lots o' pics

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, all taken with my phone :0
EDIT - See page 3 for more pictures.

Before I started:


Bumper off...


One projector, one reflector. Notice there's less of a hotspot in the middle.


Both new lights on now


Done!



Halos (rice! lol)


Looks pretty good with the retro fogs


Updated cutoff pictures:




I'm really happy with them for $115. Should hold me over until I get some real retro projectors, and I feel better knowing I'm not blinding anyone.

Might as well ask in here instead of using a new thread...

Those who have used the chrome bulbs for turn signals, were you disappointed in the output?
I put them in these new headlights and in the rear signals, but they're so weak I'm actually thinking of swapping back just because it seems unsafe.

What's more impressive to me is that the retrofitted fogs output more light and evenly.

I am very interested in these...I was just looking at the ebay listing do these happen to come with the bulbs or did you have to buy them separate. If so what bulbs and temperature did you get? *bump for this

Yes, the Blazers do an excellent job for the minimal price. I have them on anytime I have the headlights on because just headlights foreground output alone is rather poor.

They came with halogen H1 bulbs for the highs and lows, and reuse the stock turn signal bulbs.
I've got DDM 35w 5000k HIDs in them however.

Speaking from experience, you'll be very happy when you retrofit those headlights. You'll be using those same headlights, right?

I haven't determined if they will be suitable for retrofitting, have to get a hold of some decent projectors first and see how they'll fit.
If not, I've still got the stock ones to play with, nice to have 2 sets now at least so I'm not left with a car with no lights at all.

oh and tim you posted some pictures awhile back that inspired me to keep my fogs non projectors to keep a bit of glare for street signs and other stuff above the lowbeam cutoff. =)

After accustomating to non-glare, I might suggest otherwise... but that's just me.

I don't think anyone is suggesting these are a replacement for retrofits! Haha.
But thanks.

Okay, good well at least it's not just my bulbs then. I got them off eBay too so I figured maybe these particular ones were just bad.
Disappointing though, guess it's back to stock-ish bulbs. I'm thinking clear in the front and red in the back.

Good cut-off. Must not be a very big lense because it's lacking width

the chrome looks so much better, too bad. the hard part about red in the back is to be able to match the red color of the signal lights to the brake lights... let me know if you are successful..
