Post 09 GMC SIERRA projector headlights - done..se output page 2)

i know this not the kind of threads that ppl write arround here but just to share the experince with you ...

so i just payed 700$ to buy and ship these over to me



they are bixenon projectors , an after market repilca of the infiniti FX 35/FX 45
of cource these must come with a complete hid kit
so i went with this after market company called morimoto wich is backed up by 18 months waranty for everthing


because the projectors are bixenon i went with 4 projectors

and just to rise it up a notch i went with 50w ballasts and bulbs @4300k
pics of the gool in mind



more pics of the above
http://www.lightwerkz.net/news/2011/...on-conversion/

a company did the next and the cost for that setup for 1550$ and a singal projector will cost you 925$..they used a lower class projectors that uses an amp H1 bulb not like what i bought that uses a real HID bulb the D2S:thumbs:

of cource i wont do the led strip













another great look( mind that i will replace the white with black)

http://blackflamecustoms.com/gallery/gmc/07-gmc-sierra/

what will i be seeing from an FX-R projector? note that this is a 35w setup and a singal projector not 2 ,and projectors are 40ft away





i have 4 of each so ill take picture of one each as an example

they send custom harness for my high beam





they send a 1mm spacer with each projector a 2mm would emprove the light output but give it a less sharper look, will i have 4 so ill space 2 and leave 2 as is





blub color is 4300k i kinda changed my mind too late i want 5000k but ill do it latter in a year or so.



high beam solenoid



back of the projector

ballast.. looks good , and is 100% watar proof with 2 years warranty













projector with the shroud on, it has a space inside for led angle eyes , i might consider those in the future









naked projector



bulbs




here is what i have done

i bought 4 fx-r projectors , gattling gun shrouds, morimoto 5five bulbs and ballasts 4300k m with the harness.

the stuff has been sitting untill i finishd me collage exams i open the box 3 times a week to check the stuff lol

sorry for the low quality pic's all i had was my 3.2MP blackberry
i started with the marking the hallogen cutoff so i sawped back from my PNP to the hallogen's



my workin area



removed the harness for the heating process



it toke me 1 hour just to peal the lens from the housing because this is my first retro and because i ussed a heat gun, i strongly recomend not to wast time with a heat gun...go to the oven and bake the hole thing for 2 minutes at about 210f







imperfictions of the OEM reflector

use a powl or any thing to keep all your bolts and littel things in it so you wont lose any




ruber removed



i looked every where for the screws that held the reflector to the housing and didnt find any after drilling two holes in the back...no probs the silicone will close them up just right.


the reflector is acctually two parts the reflectors for the high and low beams and the signal and liner reflector

the signal reflector was held on the housing with the sealent and somthing i dont know what you call it but ill say clips







first pice out





this is the actual reflector



its mounted uisng 2 10 mm plastic bolts that are attached to a flexable plastic adabter( the white piece)





the second bolt was in the inner side and it was so tight i couldent use my 10mm wrench so i used this 5/16



WAAAAAAAAA!!

didnt work

so i cuted my wrench



this is the inner side bolt





its out....damn hard



befor you hurry up and pull it...there is a holding point at the adjusting screw..
you dont need a wrench on that one just pop it firmly and slowly







the plastic bolt at the back of the reflector

this projector is the mokeup projector



the projector is alot taller than the reflector





the shroud





so i cuted the mokeup projector and i fWONked it up ... i orderd another one i still have 3 good ones so ill complete this unit and wait untill the replacement projector arrives and do the driver's side

this is my goal... i wont be using the oem reflectors and wont use the acrilc eather

it looks so good that way and looks tough too i want to show some details like bolts and stuff to make it look like a heavy duty setup
i dont mind the look




i thought about the mounting method , what to chose from , the cheap and easy epoxy/silcone rote or the better JnC method..

i wint with the JnC , the adjusting option is always appricated.

i cleand the housing from the old robber PITA, for any one that will use this as a "how to" heat the rubber with a heat gun and use a small flat blade screw driver,and a wide paint removeing blade



set the projector temporarly to adjust and mark the drilling holes











drilled the holes and monted the two " L" braket on the bottom of the projector using 8 mm to adjust the beam hight

this is how i used the bolt

nut
washer
rubber grommet
L bracket
=housing=
rubber grommet
washer
bolt head



here i did the upper mounts/ adjusters i used 10mm bolts with 80mm length





here is the upper adjusters/mounts setup

10mm bolt x 80 mm length
projector
coil spring
10mm washer
housing
10mm washer
10mm nut
10mm nut

i might add another nut cause the first 2 can be moved easy

here is a back view of the projector and adjusting bolts

side







low beam after adjusting...this is ONE projector
