finished my retro. more pics on page 2!!!





the beam isn't really crooked as it may look in the pic, but the passenger side beam is aimed slightly higher than the driver side to compensate for degree of rotation.

no that's just how the road and my driveway sit. my driveway is inclined a bit and the road slopes downward starting from...where the car is.

alignment: they're aligned too closely. i can't change it though, so i'll have to live with a really bright, centered light. lol.

ECE is a slant pattern like:
______/--------

I did it for myself. 350z projectors aren't projectors. They are reflector based projectors, meaning they use a D2R bulb (has a shield on the bulb to prevent excessive glare). It won't give the best output, but it's a nice reflector.
