Frequently Asked Questions

Thought I'd toss up a couple of pics to help define some terms and give an example of some pricing. See the next post for more shroud options and pricing...











I'll keep a running list of FAQs here to help answer commonly asked questions.

Why can't we use our stock housings for this kit?
The length of these projectors is too long to fit into stock JK housings. My solution combines a new, deeper housing with your stock lens to allow enough room to mount these safely and securely.

Will there be any fitment issues?
I have installed these into a set of stock buckets, it takes a little finesse but it can be done. One of my testers said that their JK's plastic bucked needed to be filed down a bit to fit flush, but another said he installed without issue. So please understand that you 'may' have to massage the bucket a bit to get them to fit - your experience may be vary.

Will I still have high beams?
Yes, fully functioning high beams, just like before.

Will my lights flicker?
No - Can bus cancellers are included in this kit to prevent flickering. Keep in mind though, if you purchase the DC ballasts they have been known to flicker a bit from time to time.

Can I get 55W ballasts with this kit?
Sure, but its not necessary. The 35W kits perform nearly as well and generate less heat than the 55W ballasts.
For comparison - 35W vs 55W

35W:


55W:


I already have an HID kit, what else do I need from you?
Depends. I highly recommend buying a complete kit. Your ballasts will carry over but your bulbs will not. Your wiring harness 'may' work, or it may not. Can bus cancellers will also carry over. So minimally you'd need just the headlights and the bulbs, but I also recommend the wiring harness as well, just to ensure everything goes together as designed.

What kind of bulbs do you use?
H1 Bulbs - readily available online everywhere. Pretty standard bulb, lots of availability and cheap to replace.

Can I order other colors bulbs?
I only stock 4300k and 6000k. If you want something else I suggest you purchase the color of your choice online from another vendor.

What brand of ballasts do you use?
The 35W AC and 55W AC ballasts are HIDprojectors branded - a joint collaboration between myself and my supplier. They are fantastic ballasts - cant say enough about these!

Does painting the housing have any effect on the light output?
No. The light output comes from the projector only. The housing now serves as a home for the light and has no influence on the light output.

Will you send me a copy of the installation instructions before I buy?
Sorry, but no. The instructions are proprietary and are this kit is the result of more than 2 years of R&D. You will receive support when you purchase if needed. If you are unsure on whether or not you can do this yourself, you might want to purchase the completed kit.

Will I be able to put my lights back to stock if I choose?
Yes, as long as you dont damage your stock housings, you'll be able to put your stock lenses back on your stock housings.

Can I get angel eyes with this kit?
Yes you can. See the next post for angel eye and other shroud options.

What can be customized/painted with this kit?
Everything! The housings, the shrouds, the cutoff shield, the lens retaining ring, etc. You can really create some great looking lights with some imagination and patience!

Can I order different shrouds?
Yes, see the next post for shroud options.

How are the new lights sealed?
They are sealed with a butyl sealant, the same stuff that is used in many OEM headlights.

Why do I need electrical tape and rubbing alcohol?
The electrical tape is used to cover any exposed butyl that sticks out of the light making it easier to handle. The rubbing alcohol is used to wipe down the projector before final installation, this ensures that everything is clean.

Will I have any fogging issues?
If everything is installed correctly, no you wont have any fogging issues. Please keep in mind though, all headlights need to breathe, I include two vents in the back of the headlight that can be opened or sealed to allow or prevent airflow - its up to you and your location which solution may work best.

Shroud Options

In addition to the Mini Gatling Gun shroud which is the standard shroud offering, I'm pleased to announce the following optional shrouds:

These are UPGRADE prices and replace the Mini Gatling Gun shroud that comes with your projector order.

The ANGEL EYE SHROUD: $75 with white angel eyes.
This great looking shroud comes with an aperture cover and can house one angel eye.



The MONSTER GATLING GUN SHROUD: $100 with 1 set of angel eyes or $150 with 2 sets of white angel eyes.
This shroud can hold two angel eyes (if desired).


Customer pics (with red painted rings in the spot where the 2nd angel eye would normally go).






The SMOKE SHROUD: $75 with white angel eyes.
This is a translucent shroud with a slight bluish tint that can hold an angel eye. The entire shroud glows when lit.





The CLUBMAN SHROUD: $75 with white angel eyes.
Shown with a yellow angel eye, this one was inspired by the Mini Clubman. I think these would look great with angel eyes or with the light holes painted for a custom look.

This might be a dumb question, but... If you do this in the kitchen oven, how bad does it stink up the house/oven? I don't have access to a parts oven.

Thats a great question actually.

There is no noticble smell in the oven. I use my kitchen oven for all of my retrofits.

If we choose the option to have you build them with the Depo lights, are they the same ones you used for the Angel eye setups? I hate the OEM JK lights (with that nasty front bubble) and prefer the look of the flat style lights.

No, the domed lens is needed in order to fit the larger projector. If you want the flat style lens your only option is the original version.

Another option for those looking for halos are these LED halos. Build to fit inside the 7" housings, these put out a bright white color similar to a 6000k bulb. They require a small hole to be drilled in the housing and some sealant to secure everything down.

This is a $50 upgrade and will be available in white (pictured), blue, or red.

How do these projectors compare to moriomotos? also, what is the brand of housings that come with this kit
They are identical as far as I know, mine are not branded with that name though.

Also, do the projectors you use fit in the depo lights without modification?
No, I only use the lenses, the rest of the housings are tossed out. The DEPO lenses are cheaper than OEM lights, thats the only reason I use them.
