So I finally decided to install HIDs in this car.
I bought TYC Genera aftermarket headlights.
They look and feel pretty good! My original ones were becoming dull from 5 years & over 100K miles of driving, and didn't want to mess up my only set of headlights(just yet).
So I picked up a pair of D2S single beam projectors from eBay
And then I baked the headlights!
I removed the halogen projector and made the hole where the projector sits in larger (It looks like crap, but its hidden so I dont care)
The aftermarket headlights are actually better than the stock because the HID projectors line up perfectally with the bolt holes. I opened the stock ones up and would have been more work. So I installed the new projectors
Now the headlights have openings. With halogens it was fine, but with the HID is was no good, light was coming out of all angles.
So I covered them up with sheet metal and JB Weld and then Hi Temp silicone.
Purchased Philips D2s Bulbs (4300K), Clear Lens, & Denso Slim Ballasts from the one and only retrofitsource.com
The bottom of the aftermarket headlight had a perfect spot for the ballast to be screwed into. It looks factory installed
Before installing them, I tested them in my basement (25 feet away)
Went to the local rite aid and took this from about 30 feet away
The color of HID compared to the courtesy halogen bulb color
I just have to tweak the headlight alignment but I'm very happy with the install.
I was even more happy that everything went back together with no missing hardware!
Thanks to this awesome website for all the information found on it.
