89 Cherokee H4 Headlight Conversion
1989 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 4.0L I6 AW4 4X4 Command-Trac Renix It's finally time to replaced the cracked sealed beam with something a little more modern and maybe even a little brighter. A 200mm H6054 sealed beam headlight shares the same connector as an H4 Bulb so they are directly interchangeable. The trick now is to get a housing that fits in the 200mm bucket that holds H4 bulbs. I found mine on ebay from an AutoPal Dealer and got a 200mm H6054 H4 Euro Conversion Headlights Kit. This kit came with two european light pattern housings and two 55W/100W Yellow Autopal H4 Bulbs. I choose the euro style because I've heard a lot of people like they way they look. The light pattern is suppose to be more evenly reflected then a DOT pattern. It's a direct swap so you take the old lights out and put the new ones in. I had to modify the bracket a bit so they held the housings a little tighter with some bump stops but besides that it look half an hour and was really easy to do. I think they look a little nicer and later I can upgrade to better bulbs if I want. I'm going to upgrade the light harness when that finally comes in the mail as well.





TRS Tips: 7x6 Sealed Beam Bixenon Projector Retrofit How-To
And you thought it wasn't possible! While it may not be pretty looking at it from the back-side, the beauty of retrofitting is making it work. Here we took a gigantic Murano Bi-xenon projector, trimmed it up, and shoe-horned it inside of a tiny & shallow 7x6 generic sealed beam headlight for a Jeep. Best of all, we used inexpensive Pilot headlights that were easy to pry apart: http://www.amazon.com/Pilot-Performance-Lighting-WI-HL5A-Conversion/dp/B000 6309WA/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1368051056&sr=8-9&keywords=pilot+headlights We recommend the Professional size JB Weld Epoxy for this job: https://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=31618 We also used our Apollo 2.0 shrouds and Morimoto xbALed Halos: https://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=25797 https://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=14906

DIY: Headlight Restoration using Clear Coat
Video tutorial on how to refinished hazy/foggy plastic headlights by applying clear coat. This is intended to be a long term method compared to the other two methods which I have done in the past that was the wet sanding/polishing method and the method using strictly toothpaste. The headlights do not need to be removed from the vehicle or disassembled as I have shown the in the vehicle. Removing the headlights from the vehicle does help to eliminate the chance of any over spray from the clear coat or adhesion promoter landing on the paint which would need to be cleaned afterwards. This particular video was done on a 1997 BMW 540i E39 body style.

TRS Tips: Modifying Headlight Reflectors to House Projectors
Modifying the headlight reflectors, aka the point of no return is one of the most important steps in a retrofit using a full-size set of projectors. There is no real science to this process other than the old adage of "measure twice, cut once" Size up your projectors, compare that to the reflectors where they'll be going, make some reference lines, and go at it with your dremel tool. You'll want to start small and work your way up to the properly sized/shaped hole until the projector sits just right in the housing. Tools required: - Dremel tool - Cutoff wheel/rotozip bits - Safety glasses - Work gloves

SHARP CUTOFF 8000k HID Projector Headlight Conversion - 01 Chevy Tahoe
This is the install video for my HID Projectors that i ordered from www.FuturevisionHID.com. I have had HID's before but it was time for some projectors. It took a little bit of work but it wasnt too bad. It actually took me longer to separate the lens from the housing then it did to install the projector. The housings i am using are NOT STOCK. They are "diamond clear" so they allow the projector to shine through without being "diffused". After aiming these things, and taking a short run around my building, they seem very well. The silicon should be dry by now so tonight i will get to drive with them finally. To see more, Please visit my website www.SteveMeadeDesigns.com or www.SMDmedia.net!





Pontiac Fiero GT--D&M Motorsports Walk Around Review
Pontiac Fiero GT Video Review Presented by D&M Motorsports. The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engined sports car that was built by the Pontiac division of General Motors from 1984 to 1988. The Fiero—meaning "proud" in Italian and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in Spanish—was designed by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a Pontiac sports car. The Fiero was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes, and also the first and only mass-produced mid-engine sports car by a U.S. manufacturer. Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero design such as plastic body panels were radical for its time. Alternative names considered for the car were Sprint, P3000, Pegasus, Fiamma, Sunfire, and Firebird XP.[citation needed] The Fiero 2M4 (2-seat, Mid-engine, 4-cylinder) was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1984. The 1984 Fiero was the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 for 1984, beating out the new 1984 Chevrolet Corvette for the honor. 370,168 Fieros were produced over the relatively short production run of five years; by comparison, 163,000 Toyota MR2s were sold in its first five years.[1] At the time, its reputation suffered from criticisms over performance, reliability and safety issues. Today however, compared to less adventurous attempts at two-seaters such as the Ford EXP, the unique style of the Fiero compared to other American cars has left it a cult following as a collectible car. It remains a popular chassis for rebodies and electric conversions. Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979, during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced. To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32 mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S. Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac, and confirmed from multiple sources.[2] It was impressive mileage for a 2.5-liter engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but the three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4 L/100 km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal to a market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable. A mid-engine layout was chosen as a way to reduce both aerodynamic drag and vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency, and also for its handling, traction, and braking benefits. The sports car potential of the mid-engine layout was not fully realized when the Fiero debuted. In line with its market position, the tires, brakes, and some suspension components were carried over from other GM economy cars (like the Chevrolet Citation and Chevrolet Chevette) so the Fiero could be priced appropriately. As a result, the handling and cornering abilities of the initial Fiero were merely on par with other contemporary sporty coupes (Road & Track 1985). The public had high expectations for the Fiero with its mid-engine layout and futuristic styling, which resembles more exotic mid-engine sports cars costing much more. While initially garnering good reviews for its handling (Motor Trend 1984), the Fiero soon received disappointing reviews, as the automotive critics expected higher performance from a mid-engine two-seater. Despite the critical press, the Fiero sold extremely well and Pontiac operated three shifts at the factory during 1984, and could not keep up with initial demand.[3] The sharing of suspension components with other GM cars meant the rear suspension and powertrain was almost identical to that of the Chevrolet Citation and Pontiac Phoenix; the Fiero even included rear tie rod ends attached to a "steering knuckle", although these were hard-mounted to the engine cradle and only used for maintaining the rear tire alignment. The front suspension was derived from the Chevrolet Chevette, and Chevette enthusiasts found that they could upgrade their undersized front brakes and rotors using Fiero parts. By 1985, the oil crisis was a thing of the past and demand developed for a Fiero having more engine power and better sports car performance. Pontiac responded by introducing the GT model which included upgraded suspension tuning, wider tires, and a V6 engine having 43 horsepower (32 kW) more than the base four-cylinder. In 1986, the GT model was restyled to look even more sleek.





TRS Tips: Morimoto Mini H1 6.0 Bi-xenon Retrofit Guide
It's no wonder the Morimoto Mini H1 Bi-xenon from TRS is one of the most frequently retrofitted projectors in the world. With the 6.0's performance that can compete with the best of OEM's combined with ultra ease of installation, our Mini's outsell other projector options 2:1 Projectors: https://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=3181 Complete Retrofit System: https://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?products_id=227 Step 1: Insert threaded shaft through the front of the reflector bowl (big silicone washer installed) (Mini Gatling Gun users take note of step 6 in advance) Step 2: Install H4 or H7 adapter plate, with the notched side at 12:00 to ensure projector's rotation is level. (Skip this step for non H4, H7 applications, manual rotation adjustment is required) Step 3: Use a 27mm wrench or socket to tighten the hex lock ring. Do not over-tighten, or completely tighten until you are sure this will be the last time the projector will be mounted (the threads will deform and lock on once fully tightened) Step 4: Install the 3 prong bulb holder using a magnetic screw driver (for ease of install) - and ensure that all 3 feet are evenly and completely seated down into their channels. If the 3 feet do not go down into their channels, more space will have to be created forward of the lock ring. (flip adapter plate around, grind housing down more, or remove silicone washers) Step 5: Test fire the bi-xenon solenoid mechanism 30-40 times to be sure that the hinges are still sliding as they should be. Since this mechanism is made of fairly thin metal, it is important not to disturb it during the installation to avoid future sticking issues. Step 6: Install shroud using JB weld and centric rings. (If using Mini Gatling shroud, that must be done before the projector is mounted to the headlight bucket!) Please see our other videos on opening and re-sealing headlights, mounting shrouds, adding halos, aiming, and wiring for more details on those steps.
