alright, finally time for some completed pictures. I had no luck finding anyone (recently) who had done any of the cloud cars for retrofits. i know for a fact im the only one in the area with a 1995-2000 Chrysler Cirrus projector retrofit.
It certainly wasnt an easy retrofit, i had alot of issues with the fitment and ended up cutting a HUGE portion of the inner bezels off with my dremel to make them fit, but with that done, fitment is perfect for the morimoto minis and my graphite shrouds. i destroyed one amber ring from my ram, so i opted not to use anything too fancy with the project. I have a set of brand new oem cirrus headlights ordered and shipping as i type, because my lenses are ugly and yellow. with those comming, ill bake apart and swap lenses, then ill snag pictures of what u cut vs what factory. i was so into my mod and cutting that i didnt even stop for pictures haha. installing was a breeze, minus the chrysler wiring. i tried my old hid harness from my ram, hids would not fire. ordered a harness from TRS, and BAM lights work. later that night on my way to work, the hids start cutting on and off, sometimes for more than 10 seconds at a crack. awesome when your on a back road, 65mph and no other light source. i was at my wits ens with this retrofit. with a few emails exchanged from Andrew at TRS, i discovered Chryslers awesome need for a mopar specific hid harness because of the can bus crap, reading resistance across the headlight harness wiring. with that harness installed, no problems!
headlights now feature new trimmed inner bezels, plasti-dipped black (told you id plasti-dip something on the car!!), outer bezels plastidipped black and orange turn signal reflector lense removed, and morimoto minis backed with 3five 6000k TRS bulbs, black painted graphite shrouds, 3five ballasts, and a mopar specific hid harness. a bit excessive for a 275$ car, but i can now see at night, and for that id pay thousands if i had to.
i have a few good end result night time shots.
ill take some day shots when i get some time between full time school and work. Along with new headlights i just ordered, i also put in a order for a dome light led, 6000k, a 9 inch amber leds strip, and two 12 inch amber led strips, all for interior lighting of the car.
i also have a plan for the taillights, but due to chryslers stupid design of these taillights, i need to modify the wiring in the back as they are twist lock sockets. i need to sort out what wires are what before i start adding new lighting to the tails.
