Well, me any my buddy (av6g6) are now in the process of building another set of projector headlights for my Metro. This time we are using the HID projectors from an Acura TSX. These are designed to be used with HIDs and will spread the light across the cutoff more evenly.They also are a bit more compact than the current BMW projectors we are using. We should be more than halfway completed with this tonight, and i'll have pics up of our progress. These should be even nicer than the previous ones we did, even as nice as those were!

Keep an eye on this, UPDATES to come!

Here is the link to our previous build(s) we did:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=44829

I will most likely be selling the all black set of projector headlights that is shown on the 2nd page of that thread if anyone is interested.

Ok, here are the pics of where we are stopping at tonight:

Only things left to do are the following:

-Rebuild a vacuum chamber so we can vacuum form covers for the front of it.
-Make the form fitted covers
-Find additional trim rings and paint
-Test fit in car
-Paint outside of the projectors to cover the ducting tape

Thoughts?

Here are some pics of the vacuum chamber we are making to allow us to make custom fitted shrouds. Hopefully will have the majority of this done tonight!
