I know this one died on the vine for a while, but, i'm back and this is done! They turned out great and I am pleased with the output. Without further delay, the build.
Testing the solenoid on the new S7 projector.
The old housing had brass nutserts, the new housing has #8-32 SS hardware with nyloc nuts to bolt them in for positive installation with no chance of the projector coming loose due to vibration and heat. I had to further modify the shroud to fit over the new hardware.
Completed assemblies, turned out nice.
During the install, the power steering resevoir becomes your worst enemy because of the cap and grommet that the S7 employs to keep water out of the assembly. It protrudes back into the factory bucket quite a few inches. I found that if you space the reservoir bracket with a few washers, everything clears and the install can proceed without any custom brackets.
Another part of the install that proved to be a challenge was finding a good place to locate the CanBus compliant control harness which includes the micro relay box and a couple of load resitors in massive heatsink boxes. They get hot so mounting location was critical. This was the best place.
Got them powered up and running.
Turned out great, love the way I tied them in with wheel and body colored shrouds.
Still need to get the non U.S. spec horizontal adjustment screws so I can adjust the step distance.
These pretty much negate my Rigid lights. Low beam, didn't think to take a high beam shot.
Love the color flicker! Lots of blues and purples.
