    Re: Oficcial Retrofit thread

    I will toss some up tonight. Also trying to document as I do these retrospective. Finishing two this weekend.
    I also think that about half the group buy members are sending them to me. Lol. All of a sudden I got a lot of requests and orders.

    Difference between OEM and MH1

    Best money I've spent on the truck yet, hands down. Everything else has been nice to have, this has the biggest instant bang for your buck end result.

    Re: Oficcial Retrofit thread

    Please do feel free to upload pics during the process of the retrofit itself, as I have a set of MH1 on the way, but may change to fx-r depending on fitment behind the headlight housing.

    Also feel free to show pics not only of the retro in the housing but behind in the engine compartment as well. :shake:

    Re: Oficcial Retrofit thread

    I'm assuming that is the morimoto mini h1 =mh1...and next to it is the OEM Denali projector.

    For those considering it, yes you can see the light difference between stock and projector in pics posted, but until you actually see it person you cannot truly appreciate the light output you get from a quality projector.

    I am sick of some guys constantly bashing projectors based on their review of some shit pair of eBay halogen projectors and assume it carries over to all projectors.

    Of all the mods I did to my truck, which isn't a lot...the projectors were by far the best money spent.

    yes those are the morimoto min H1's. I have a picture of the stock output with an HID kit in them.

    Holy hot spots!!

    I should go back to the same place and retake that picture, just havent done it yet. The difference will be huge.

    I'm happy enough with the light output in my truck, but, I'm planing on ordering a set of headlights for my Grand Prix and sending them to Phil for a retro fit once I pay off some bills.
