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.
