with my upcoming sale of my cd changer and my current funds I'll be purchasing some projector assemblies this weekend. I also plan to buy an HID retrofit for christmas. Im going to try and make it an early present though. I know the ellipsoids use an H1 bulb.

Just to be sure, I need an H1 HID kit, correct?

Ahh the dremel.

Im making my own angel eyes using a DIY i think was posted here. And naturally, a dremel is involved.

I just cant wait to get them. i even bought new amber bulbs and coated them gray to replace my current ones. I thought they were getting whitish, but damn, the new ones look HOT!

Don't just retro fit projectors in US lights water will get in and fuck every thing up, if you gonna do it do it right BRO, get Euro lights you need the housing.

yeah, here's the DIY angel eye. I made one today as a test, I'll post some pics in a sec. I need to make my cuts deeper. That way more light will be reflected.

I went to take pics but my camera sucks for nite shots. i need to make the cuts halfway through like in the DIY site. Mine are barely past the surface. The camera did pick up the light around the LEDs though.
