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 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

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
