my project. retrofitting hid's into my van 56k sucks

...with fx35 oem projectors =).





this is my shroud. basically the fx35 shroud shaved down very thin with the laawn lamp on top of it. it gives it a lifted bezel look instead of just sitting on the proejctor.



front shot with my final shroud (hopefully).


tada more to come!

got some more done today, actually at work we had no installs so i decided to primer my headlight and paint it. i also made my shroud combo and painted it a aluminum color...instead of silver cause i thought i had the paint hehe.

i used high temp paint for most of the housing. still have to mount it and going to fit it into the car to see the level.

i finally FINALLY picked up another headlight locally so im going to start retron' that tomorrow.

A side shot







my shroud/chrome combo



side shot, projector painted black (high temp paint)


idea how far it sits out. yes you see a mistake on my shroud but you dont notice it when the cover is on.

it was a mid 90's fluke thing I think they just shared the chassis design like in the early 90's when mazda used the explorer chassis.
