Spyder Halo headlights retrofitted with Morimoto Mini H1 Bi-Xexon projectors and HID kit all from theretrofitsource.com
Waiting on my new third brake light, third brake light strobe module from SuperBrightLEDs.com, and my 7 Color Slimline Truck LED Underbody Lighting Kit from ledunderbody.com. Pics will be posted after these are installed.

There really is no comparison man. I dont have a pic from inside looking out with the original projectors. Morimoto's throw so much light out on the road and it is so much more controlled. Very impressed with this set up. Was not a bad project, considering i had never done anything like this before.

Here is a pic looking head on at original projectors.

Looks good. But it looks like the rotation on the drivers side is off a bit.

Not sure how to adjust that on the spyder kit though.

It is off just a little bit, but it is not enough to be noticed when driving down the road. Parked with lights against a wall, yea you can see it is off a tad. But you wont notice it when driving.

did you use the retro quick system from the retrofit source? if so did the bracket they sent to mount the mini h1 to the spyder headlight work with no problems?
