Full HID projector install on '08 Blade

I just got all the pieces to my retro-fit glass-projector HID system. I went with 5100k bulbs and I'm planning on doing the install this weekend after a track day at Heartland Park Saturday.

The kit is all inclusive and includes full glass-projector housings and white halo rings, so the job won't be all shoddy with HID bulbs in a crappy reflector. I'm converting the POS 1 bulb on low, 2 bulbs on high system that Honda thinks is fantastic (you know, the one that invites hundreds of strangers and some police to inform you that you have a blown bulb...) with a proper 2 bulbs on low and 2 bulbs on high system. The projector housings also have the electric low beam cutoff solenoid in them, so this is a proper bi-xenon setup.

I'm posting because I'd like to know if enough people are interested in me doing a complete picture/video walkthrough of the procedure with all the detail and nothing left out when I tackle this project this weekend.

For those of you who may be interested, I got everything I need, with the exception of solder and heatshrink wire loom tubing, for about $209.00 shipped. (took a lot of shopping around and I got lucky that they went on sale... saved $90 more dollars right there.)

General Motors will be just fine as long as the Japenese don't ever learn how to build trucks.

I'm interested in a complete picture/video walkthrough of the procedure as well as any part numbers or retailers of the system you purchased.

Re: Full HID projector install on '08 Blade

Cool mod. Was planning to do this on my 929 but it will have to wait for next winter. Major issues I'll be looking for answers are
1)finding small enough bi-xenon projectors that fit the housing as they are slightly longer than normal projectors.
2)build a circuit that automatically waits a few seconds until the engine is running before igniting the hid's

Re: Full HID projector install on '08 Blade

That's without a projector, depending on your reflector you'll risk blinding oncoming traffic even with the low beams.. I tried that on my 929 but it attracted too much attention, cars would flash me all the time.

Re: Full HID projector install on '08 Blade

My system is a full glass-projector, not just an HID bulb slapped in the stock reflector. For $60 you shouldn't expect a full retro-fit, just the bulbs without projector housings.

Re: Full HID projector install on '08 Blade

Yes, i would like to see the project in full. I have pondered that to my 07 Blade. Start with some part numbers and where to get them.

Re: Full HID projector install on '08 Blade

This is what I am using: H7 H1 Bixenon projector system, complete I found them from a seller on eBay that usually sells them for $299 including shipping, but recently dropped his price to $209.

Should look something like this setup:
