Default HID overdose, the projector build

after the big fail on my first set of HID projetors, i just said forget it im done with all of this. but before i put the old lights back in my jeep i had looked at a KILLER set up of HID porjetors and fogs. after everything was said and done i told myself id do ONE more set up. but it was one thing after another in my life fired from job's, trying to get though school and now being layed off i gave my self a birthday preasint with these

http://www.theretrofitsource.com/product_info.php?cPath=24&products_id=243

with time to kill i figured i can do this. no. little did i know i would have NO idea what i was geting myself into. this is going to be the story bord of how i retrofitted thses lights. this will be an ongoing thing if anyone has something to ask or whatever ask away.

PS, bare with me there are alot of pic's

the fogs were no big, just had to make up some mounting brackets and put the fogs on.. the wiring was the hardest part. there not alot of room to put anything in the jeep. i also wish some of the relay wiring was longer to. ill make do though, i on to makeing the head lights will see how this goes...

Now I remember you and I talked about you doin a retro for the Bi-xenons... is this them? or did you just stay with the single beam HIDs?
But looks really good, they the same size as the NorCal ones?

Will yo be selling your fog setup? Or making more & selling them?
They are rediculously bright for being so small. How much did they cost?

hmmmm no, i wont be selling these. there are a few reasons why there super bright.
there a real projetor fog light the beam pattern is super nice. and with the HID'S it makes them even brighter.

you can get them tho..

Dude your just using Blazers? Thats sick! What color are you using? What HID kit?
I know those blazers are bright, we've had them on a few cars and I actually have a pair in my garage currently! They are factory for the C5 vettes and thats how we were turned onto them, saw a vette with bad *** lights at a car show and he said they were factory besides his HID retrofit.
