Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

To all the naysayers....Of course if Ed hadn't done some diggin, I wouldn't have it. Thanks!



I also got some new H4 headlights and turn signal/marker lights installed, along with a newer grill and headlight surrounds.




The work is still going on. I plan on body work, paint job, new tires, and some bucket seats. There is a plan to the madnes....well maybe.

Took it out in the pouring rain immediately afterwards and holy crap....HID's are where it's at! I see an upgrade in the DD in the very near future.

Awesome! so how is the cutoff and what about the color and distance?

Cut off is going to depend on your lens to truly run a hid you are supposed to have true projectors but the only way to get a true projector that i have seen in our housings is to retrofit. So the cut off has nothing to do with the hid kit its going to be the lens you use. 5000K is supposed to be pure white at 35 watts if you go 55 watts they you definitely are looking at white. The distance is amazing I have never had another light that I am able to see as clear and as far with. But again the way we have it set up is not the right way I would love to get some true projectors to run these HID's. Hopefully nick is working on that lol.

Re: Weekend is over...what did you get done?

Building a plate bumper for my buddies Subaru Forester. He has taken this thing through some crazy trails for what it is....

Also sending Glen motivational texts while he is attempting his rear fender trim...lol. He's off to a good start.





Got the majority of the mounting brackets done for it. He wanted to use 10 Ga., so thats what im using.
