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!

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.

Also el presidente that little battery isn't going to light them up nearly as much as your car battery. What bulbs did you use for them?

I just used two white LEDs from radioshack. I wasn't paying attention when i bought them and I think grabbed the ones that don't illuminate much. I made my cuts deeper but the light barely improved. I think Im going to admit defeat.

I've done everything he did in the DIY but mine are much dimmer.

Well I am sure he taped into a wire that gives power to the lights...so that wheen he turns on his lights they turn on...and they are much brighter...try getting a smaller resistor....

I just checked the thing again. I did indeed use LEDs that are too weak. once my projectors arrive I may pick up the project again.

hehehe.

Well, just to see what would happen, I attached the postive battery clamp after the resistor. They were more blue then white and very bright, and then the right one caught fire. Now the left one still lights up white/blusih, and the right one glows orange.
