Interesting... Anyone noticed problems with the lights being unsteady or bouncing as the car's going over bumps?

i used these to replace my Norm's flush mounts .they mount to the hood the same way and they did not bounce around at all .so i dont expect these to either .the weather has not been good enough to try them out yet other than a few trips down the cottage roads for aiming purposes .the area of the hood where they are mounted is very stable as that is where the hinges are .the light spread and distance penetration is so much better with these lights over my old setup .i have tossed the fog lights i used to have to run with Norm's lights .without the bubble style lense there is a big dark spot in front of the car .i use all four projectors on for high beams .real flamethrowers .

I have put on about 1000 miles since I installed them last fall and mine do not bounce around at all. At least not anymore that the car does. My hood is pretty tightly mounted and held down so my lights do not bounce because of that. I can imagine what would happen if I didn't have the hood latched though.

Thanks!

I'm almost ready to start making them again. I've taken a slight break to upgrade my equipment but I'll be sure to email you when things are ready to go again.

Thank you!

Yes I will be!

As long as there is a demand for them, I will continue to produce them.

I typically produce the kits in bulk in group buys that I start in the mall section. If you're interested in participating in the next group buy, pm me with your info like your email address. I can get in touch with you when I make the next batch

Does anyone have any pics of a set of these installed, but of the underside of the hood when it's up?

All the pics look nice from the top, but I'd like to see how messy the wiring is behind the scenes too. And where are people mounting the HID ballasts?

Also, has anyone done anything to get rid of the gap between the new lights and the hood itself?

I'd like to get a set of these lights, but would like to be able to address these details as well.

Has anyone done the halos with a white/colored one on the inside and and amber one on the outside so you can use the amber one as a signal?

dobey, I don't really have any good pictures from under the hood. My personal kit probably wouldn't be a good example anyways since I'm always installing / removing / experimenting so my wiring is a bit of a mess.

The cleanliness of the wiring installation is pretty much up to you and how much thought / effort you put into it .

firstclassfiero, I haven't seen that color combination yet, but it is entirely possible. If you're interested let me know!

I have another group buy open now in the mall I'm hoping to finalize my numbers by the end of the week so please message me soon!

Thanks guys!

The want is there, the money is not. Haha. I would just be concerned if the halo would still be visible if the projector is on inside it.

I would say that it would be difficult to see with the projector on. They are definitely bright.

OneQuickGT, I recently did a run of the GT tail lights. I'm going to make some headlights and I have a few other projects on the go, but check back with me soon and I can put together a kit for you if you'd like.

Thanks!

I have my lights (thanks doublec4!), but haven't put them together yet. I think I'm going to do a bit more work to them, and mount them differently.

Does anyone know of any reflector housings that could be mounted in placed of one of the projectors on each side? I'm thinking of only having the two inside lights be projectors for the headlights, and having the outside two be reflectors for the parking lights and turn signals. This would hopefully help make the turn signals on the Fiero a bit more visible to other drivers who seem to not want to see the stock ones that are so low, and set back inside the nose.

What you can do is remove the HID bulb from the outside projectors, find a LED H1 bulb that will fit into the projector. Tap into your turn signals and run the wires up. The LED bulb will illuminate the projector as if it was a turn signal housing

Sure. But nobody makes H1 bulbs (LED or otherwise) that are the correct amber color for marker/signal lights. I'd rather have proper lenses for that too, so it's easier for people to see, and less likely for a cop who is having a bad day to give me a ticket for having marker/signal lights in a projector.

You can adapt something like this to the front of the projector:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-A...r-Lens-/110959931521

Or make a mount for it so it can take the place of the project and sit far enough forward to be visible.

Sure. I'd rather use a real reflector housing for it though, so it has a replaceable bulb rather than a simple PCB of LEDs glued inside the thing with a couple wires running out. I'll figure something out one way or another. I was just curious if anyone else had done the same, and this thread seemed like a good place to bring it up.
