Flash forward a few months, I decided to open the headlights and order some Mini H1 bi-xenon projectors for the old high beam housings, and replaced the low beam projectors fresnel lens with a clear lens. I then modified the wiring to allow all 4 projectors illuminate on low beam. I also added a few LED light bars.. (I'm afraid of the dark)
Step one: take off front bumper. You do not need to remove the lip or the wheels to take out the headlights.
The standard low beam projector with fresnel lens and 6k bulb
The low beam with a clear lens installed, and same 6k bulb. The cutoff is much bluer which I like, and the light appears crisper and not so 'washed out'.
Right headlight powered on with both projectors illuminated. The steps are slightly different as the projectors aren't the same. The OEM projectors also bow down on the sides which made aligning the rotation somewhat difficult.
Now for paint. I just couldn't make this part look good. I spent way too much time messing around with painting and how to seal in the new projector so it didn't bleed light through behind the lens. I'll probably go with new shrouds in the future and redo this part.
I decided to go with a satin black to match the wrap on the car, along with a satin red 'eyebrow' above the projectors. I didn't paint the squirrel spotters or turn signal housing because I wanted it to remain bright and functional. The more light the better.
I also installed some led strips for a demon eye effect (it's very dim). They illuminate with the park lights.
Finished product. A million times better than the standard GT-R headlights, and crazy color at the cutoff too!
So, I figure that with 4-35w HID projectors, 2-13" spot light bars (60 Watts), and 1-22" hyperspot light bar (144 Watts), totals 344 Watts of total lighting and a theoretical output of 32,000 lumens. I'm happy now!
