Get off your ***, its not like you have anything else to do!

I think the Mini D2S would be an easier fit, but damn, its 3x as much? Definitely the Square shrouds, they match the lines of the truck. You just painting flat black or you matching your truck? Any angel/demon eyes or DRL fun?

Literally nothing else to do but work on my dumb truck lolol.

Gonna do Satin black. Just to get color match the painter said its 90$ plus his cost to prep and paint. I prefer black accents anyways. Might have him do the grille as well.

no halos, although behind a shroud like Gatling gun shroud is baller but probably not. Also no Demon eyes. I wanna avoid extra wiring this time around. Demon eyes are low-key the coolest **** tho lol.

Man, if it wasn't for my desire to have those C-bar LED.... That looks good!!! I did a retro fit for my F150. Looks like there is plenty of space to do some cool stuff with those heads!!!

ha yea i sent those to a group chat the other day (all of them have retrofitted Titan headlights), very similar to what I'm gonna do. I actually sent that builder a message with some questions but haven't heard back. Not that i really blame him since he does this for income.

I think the square projectors will work better than round, even tho they're hardly square. also hope the Baja Designs Squadron looks better, I think it will but then again I won't put all this effort into something I think is gonna look like garbage lolol

Parts should ship today or tomorrow, got the Bi-xenon Morimoto MiniH1 stage3 kit. Went with square mini gatling gun shrouds and the normal Mini H1 projectors. 55k color HID's. Going to run a High beam splitter to tie my LED lights to the High beam signal. the harness being sent with the kit also splits the OEM plug to a separate high beam and low beam plug. Also a couple other connectors and everything SHOULD be plug and play. Maybe by next week i can get parts to paint and reassembly.

Started with getting the projector fit, needed to cut away part of the plastic that held the halogen bulb diffuser/shield thing in order for the bowl to sit all the way against the back of the reflector. Next up is drilling a hole to mount the LED cube in the bottom section.
and a pic of the mommy mobile because snow pics are the best pics.

Yea i have a pair i removed from my bumper. I'm going to mount them upside down and use a piece of aluminum L track as a spacer to center them. I flipped the bezel and lens so the logo isn't upside down as well lol. Plan is just to bolt them to the chrome reflector and use a big washer on top to give it a bit more area to tighten down on.

Hope to get them dropped off today for paint we will see how work goes though.

Great work on the retrofit! I have retrofitted my last three trucks. I didn't do the 17' because this is the first time the headlights aren't terrible. I love that you are using the baja designs squadrons. They are my favorite LED company! They are now offering Laser LED! Crazzy stuff out there.

This picture reminds me of the face of the drones in the movie OBLIVION.
