Just been experimenting while waiting for my HID bulbs to arrive, not decided what to do yet, going to try
other LED's and combinations before a final decision.

Looks very nice.
Would love do add led lights to my zr black lights inside the glass, not sure where to start. I'll keep looking for inspiration.

Boy got skills! :clapping

Did you say that the projector units have a solenoid for use as high and low beam? If so, that's just what I need for my Jeep headlights. Can you post a link to the supplier of those and the HID bulbs?

Thanks

Yes they are, here you go.

These are the exact ones I bought from this seller but they have gone up in price I paid £14.50 for my projectors,
make an offer, just be sure they have the correct adaptor ring for your application, mine came with H7 and H4.

As for the bulbs you need the H1 bulbs, they are out of the 4300k version but you could shop about or get the 8000k.

No worries. :wink3


...oh and a little update folks, I now have the bulbs, the seller sent H11 bulbs by mistake but resolved the issue
and was very polite to deal with, just got to fit them to test but life keeps getting in the way. :slapme
