07MetallicSC bugged me to make him some retrofits,hes getting new aftermarket housings, painted black with MiniH1 projectors, 6000k bulbs, MiniGatling shrouds, and a "Maven" single relay harness.

Heres some of the first steps in his build.

Housings apart and chrome prepped for paint:


Housing painted black:


Plug and Play "Maven" single relay harness:


Bowls with projector mounted, visible are the protected shutter wires and epoxy fastened mounting cups:


Inner housings with side markers epoxied in place


Back of light in progress, no wires through seal, cleanly modified reflector bowl, etc:


Drivers light assembled, not aimed:



Can you notice the difference between these two turn signals? I can, one more little touch I decided it needed:



Anybody else build lights like this?......NOPE.

You need a bixenon harness TheRetrofitsource.com sells them, ir I could make you one like I did for 07MSC, I make mine better than anything you can buy from "off the shelf"

Nice eh.
This guy has had quite a bit of trouble with them. I would make sure he's got everything sorted out before you buy them from him.
