Bug Out Vehicle- Retrofit Upgrade HID headlight

Many people have asked me "what is up with my headlights", well lately I have had duct tape on them because I hadnt figured out how to finish my project of doing a HID retro conversion. Basically taking the old halagen headlights and replacing them with HID projectors from a newer SUV. Upgrading. Now many people simply put "HID KITS" in there headlights just replacing the bulb,which is a poor excuse for proper lighting. The original housing cannot focus that much light and simply blinds everyone else on the road. But when I pull up next to a wall and shine my lights along with a range rover or BMW it would take a true lighting guru to tell which was mine ,a 77 international scout or a 80,000 dollar BMW SUV.

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.

Chemical Guys will show you how to wet sand the headlights and prepare for the polishing process. Wet Sanding is performed with Chemical Guys Sanding block and extra fine sand paper. Next, the headlights are polished using V34, V36, and V38 optical polishes using the orange, green, and black Hexlogic polishing pads. The Flex PE-14 Rotary Polisher teamed with the Evolve 4R mini backing plate has the polishing power to remove the sanding scratches and restore the crystal clear appearance to the headlight. To protect the headlight from feature fading from sun damage, we use a coat of JetSeal which is formulated specifically to protect the headlight against harmful UV Rays.

DIY: Polishing Foggy Headlights
Video tutorial on how to refinish your foggy/hazy plastic vehicle headlights cheap and easy. This tutorial was done on a 2004 Volkswagen Golf TDI. This is a tutorial on how to fix it, without breaking your budget and buying new headlights or lenses. You will need 1000, 1500, 2000 grit, soapy water, rubbing/polishing compound, & wax. Instead of compound, you can also use tooth paste because it does have a small amount of grit in it. Headlight polishing with toothpaste: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD0EcKrfA7M Headlight restoration using clear coat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgNNMj0gGbA Material/products: -1000 grit wet/dry sandpaper -1500 grit wet/dry sandpaper -2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper -bucket of water with car wash soap (or dish soap) -paste or liquid polishing compound/scratch remover -paste or liquid automotive wax (I used carnauba wax, but it doesn't have to be) -2 lint free polishing clothes Procedure: -first start by washing the headlight with soap and water to ensure there is no dirt which could cause problems during the sanding or polishing process -if you would like, you can tape off the adjacent areas of the fender, bumper, hood, and grill to ensure you won't damage them -using your pail of soapy water, ensure the surface of the light is wet along with the sand paper and start with the grit that you feel is necessary -my lights were very faded, so I started out with 1000 grit -once you are satisfied with the 1000 grit sanding process, you can now move up to the next finer stage of grit until you have reach the finest grit available -make sure you rinse the area and it is always kept wet for fine sanding -once done, you can now move onto polishing compound -apply the polishing compound and rub into the light, when it dries you can add a mist of water to help moisturize the product -once satisfied with the polishing, you can now move onto a scratch remover compound -you can also apply a little water to the scratch remover compound to help moisturize the product -once done with the scratch removing compound, you can now clean the area free of water and buffing compound -apply your choice of wax (I used Carnuba wax) for a protection and final polishing layer -buff until high quality shine and clarity, then remove the tape Thank you to all those who watch my videos and support my content.

How to: Upgrade From a Plug n Play HID kit to a High Performance Headlight Projector Retrofit
The four main components required to upgrade from a plug n play HID kit to a full xenon or bi-xenon retrofit are gone over here. The projector: the key component that collects and focuses the intense light from the bulb into a proper beam pattern. The D2S bulb: standard bulb type for all high performance HID projectors The AMP/D2S adapters: the converter cables that allow you to run a D2S bulb with a set of existing "HID kit" / aftermarket ballasts. the Projector: focuses the light from the bulb into a strong, uniformly lit beam pattern with a proper upper light cutoff line to light up the road perfectly. The most important part! D2S bulb: required bulb type for use in true xenon/bi-xenon headlight projectors. You cannot re-use your generic 9006, h1, h4, (etc) HID kit bulbs and expect a good output. AMP/D2S ballast adapters: convert your generic HID kit ballasts for compatibility with the base of the D2S bulbs. The shrouds or bezels: simply put, the trim piece that covers the projector after it has been retrofitted into your headlights. Our OEM designs make for a finished, factory look.

How To Restore Headlights - EricTheCarGuy
I've probably been asked about doing this video more than any other. The Subaru makes a prime candidate to test this out. I did make some mistakes when it came to using the buffer so try and learn from those by not using the terry cloth attachment and also making sure you don't stay in one place too long, otherwise stick to the directions and do stuff by hand, do it fast enough and it will be good cardio. You can find the Quixx kit that I used at Walmart, Pep Boys, and Autozone in addition to your local auto parts supplier.
