    I've got a few left from the ones I ordered, if you'd be interested.. If this post violates any of the rules here, please feel free to delete it.

    Well, my replacement parts came in yesterday, but I didn't have any time to finish the install, but found some time this morning between playing plumber and chef.. LOL.. I haven't been able to aim them yet, since it isn't dark enough and I'll have to drive somewhere to do it since my driveway is at an angle.

    Here are a few pics..

    Brackets with the housings installed..



    Installed and on..

    LOL.. Yeh, I think it'd look sweet.. I'm just starting to run out of room for ballasts, so I dunno what I'll do..

    I was able to take some shots of the cutoff..

    This one is before I did too much adjusting.. I had to run down to a local gas station to get some level ground to adjust the lights. I was "mid-adjust" when some local rednecks came out and started acting like there was going to be an issue, so I left..



    I went down to another location that I thought might not end up in someone getting shot and took these..



    I basically adjusted it until I stopped getting flashed by trucks. Cars never seemed to mind, but taller trucks sure had an issue with it at first. I guess I need to see if there is an official way to adjust the beam for optimal effectiveness..

    That's the cut off, you're basically supposed to make the "up" side shine into your lane and the level spot goes into the other lane, so it doesn't blind oncoming traffic..

    Tram,

    That is a really nice, modern looking mod. You should offer it up as a kit! Well done, mate!

    Angry Problem with Install!!!!!

    Wow - I have a major problem! The Fogs are melting my housings - both sides.

    These are the 880 HID kits. On my Passenger side the whole bulb housing is melting the rear relector and housing so that the bulb is pointing towards the driver side. On the Driver side, the lens is melting the center, I cannot see what is happening to the housing.

    Here are some pics:

    Passenger Side:

    394481_10150449910048443_595383442_8599676_231474956_n.jpg

    Driver's Side:

    379015_10150449904893443_595383442_8599650_156389573_n.jpg

    Shoot, I thought I had done a really tight install. Anyone have a clue as what is going on?

    HELP!!!!!

    What is the heat range of the fogs you are running?

    I can only assume the ignitor for the right pic is possibly too close to the lens causing the fogged look. Left pic looks like possibly vibration related.

    Possibly a switch to a cooler heat range set and glass-housed projectors would suffice?

    Same question as Cammed, Are you running 55w bulbs? those might be creating too much heat. I'm running 35w on mine for 6 months and no issues.

    Oh, that might make some good sense.

    Good point. I thought I had ordered 35W, but maybe I did not realize they were 55w.

    Shoot. Anyone know where to get replacement or even better glass/metal housings?

    Thanks!!!!
