Default For those who question my addiction to lighting.....


(not pictured is another projector, an uncountable number of LED'*, tons of cold cathode tubes, and a whole bunch of random other stuff) Corner lights are hard to see in that picture but they are on the shelf too.


Organized my work area today....hung the light too...so much for not putting holes in the walls. Still needs a bit of cleaning but its soooo much nicer than before.

I really like the bike. Other than me poping a few tires, it hasn't ever let me down. (even when I have hit the pavement with the bike....and I mean literally hit it.)

I'm sure you can do it. I have a lazy **** of a room mate who is a huge space hog. On the other side of that, we have no couches and no TV. so it makes for some extra room

yes you are reading that correctly, I have no TV.

So can we be expecting a final result of that projector/HID retrofit anytime soon?? I'm really curious to see how it ends up.

oh how I would love to finish it soon. the 96-99 HL are debatable one of the harder headlights to retrofit. They are not wide, they are not deep, and they are not tall. Any one of those 3 would make it significantly easier. I'm actually going through the process of re-evaluating what projectors I want to use (possibily gain the HID high beam feature) I am not the fastest at finishing projects but the clean work area should help.

What projectors do you have in your "teaser" pic? 2.25" Bosch e46 ECE projectors with the bezel by chance? Those seem to be the smallest that I've seen.

Acura TSX. which have a 2.5"ish lens. The E46 bezel/shroud is a lot different.

Acura TSX Low Beam (Stanley):
Diameter = 71.05mm
Height = 85.30mm
Width = 120.80mm
Length = 156.45mm
Length(seat of the lens to mounting holes) = 42.00mm
Length(mounting holes to end of bulb) = 96.95mm
Width(between top mounting holes) = 100.45mm
Width(between bottom mounting holes) = 103.45mm
Height(between mounting holes) = 41.50mm

Are those the smallest you have seen, or just smallest HID projectors that you have seen?
