Retro-fit maiden voyage
hello all,
i posted in the exterior section a while back about building a set a custom projectors for a 05 1500. well i finally got the parts and got started of them. her are pictures so far.

After i split the lights apart using the oven to heat up the lights i taped of the turn signal reflector because im planning on going to switchbacks and would like to keep the reflectiveness. i also taped up around the reflector as i planned to use a tint to make it match the black painted bezels.

the light housing with the d2s projectors in them

prepping the shrouds for accent painting

the accents will be black to add some character to them in a black headlight housing. i should have somemore pictures tomorrow when the paint is dry and i can keep going.

Those look great, Dood! Nice job! Make sure to post a pic on the finished product.

update, i got my bezels all painted black and the reflectors tinted along with the bezel that holds the projector

also i have my projectors shrouds accent painted

i put an led halo in behind the shroud that i will either have come on with the key or driving lights/turn signals am open to suggestion, that is what the second set of wires coming out of the shroud are for

i should have the lights mocked up and aimed tomorow night so they can be sealed up and ready to go for the weekend i will update again tomorrow. thank you for looking :smileup:

Nice job! But when you post the photos, use the IMG link. This way the photo will populate in the thread like I have been doing for you.

well they are finally complete i didnt get a chance to take many pictures behing that central illinois weather is more moody than my menopausal mom and it decided to down pour. but here is the final product.

the pictures dont do justice for the halo it looks killer i will get some more pictures tomorrow after i finish my midterms and work thanks again for looking
