Talking 2005 Honda Accord w/ Depo Black OEM, S2000 (lots of pics)

Hey guys, i havn't been on here for a while and.. I think it's time to share another conversoin that belongs to HONgDa or.. Tony Hong, he owns a black 7th gen accord and after doing his own conversion he asked me to do one for him. He supplied the projector and the Black oem style depo headlights and I did the conversion for him.

The projectors were mounted with A4 bezel and the chrome left on the turn signal area was blacked out to match the rest of the flat black outer trim.

Stock black housings from Depo



Construction, drilling and custom machining mounts



Test mounting projectors for doing high to low beam alignment


Test mounting for bezel and outer plastic trim clearance



View of rotational adjustment screw to rotate the projector left or right to correct human precision error in headlight conversion.

Blacking out and matching chrome turn signal area. Stock, sanding, masking, and painting. A few steps were not posted like primer and etc.





All projector compoents and chrome pieces were cleaned, washed, dried and ready to be reassembled.


The s2000 metal glass projector retainer was sanded prior to cleaning and this allows the urathane achesive to have a better mechanical bond between the plastic bezel and the metal projector.


Internal low/high beam assembley finished and ready to be installed in headlight.


Headlight sealed and clamped along the edge to save some labor and promote even sealing along the edge so no foreign objects, liquid or gas can get in.

Here you can see the rear of the headlight where the S2000 is centered in the stock low beam position like assumed. And rubber oem cap was put back on and sealed.




Completed headlight




Comparison of the new headlight and the retro it will be replacing


Rear shot of the new headlight and the older retro.. mmm electrical tape (Tony said I can post his work =) hehe..)

Out for a drive without bumper to do rotational and headlight alignment, much easier with the bumper off. You can see low beam on first and then high beam, it's not that bright like in the picture since the camera is picking up glare.



Crooked beam that needs to be rotated


All fixed! This is why I spend the time to put the rotational adjustment, just for a one time use


Low and high beam alignement is perfect!


Close up shot of headlight on with bumper off


Another close up shot with the bumper on


And the complete headlight conversion! Another happy cilent.



Happy cilent drives off but stops while getting out of my drive way for me to take a picture of the super sharp beam along my wall.


And that's all folks! Enjoy!
Best Regards,
Larry

Worth the wait and cash spent. Driving at night is 10X better with the s2ks compared to the valeo retro that i did. Blows it out the water in terms of sharpness and width. Thanks for the great work Larry! This is my third and final retrofit. Yeah Final!! I'll have more pics of the car when i get a chance to put my 18s back on. Stay tuned.......


edit: 2003 Accord not 2005.

Nope won't happen. I'm retired from the retrofit game and i won't pull a Jordan and come out of retirement haha. I'm really impressed with the s2ks and the quality of work put into it. Why would i want to change that?! The prior projectors i used were e46 and h7 valeos, they were average.

mahdigga - you should e-mail me at [email protected] and i'll send you a ton of info over your way and then we can work together and i'll come up with a custom quote for you. Oh I even have a spare white/clear reflective that replaces the orange one.. or.. i could fill in the space with the orange reflective gone so it looks nice and smooth...

Hongda - glad you enjoy your lights hehe.. it woudl be sad to see you do another retro and sell thsi set hehe..

chino182 - hey your back! havn't seen you around, where you been? hehe..well the grit I use to sand down the chrome depends on what I use to paint it with. Typically you can remove the chrome very easily with 220 grit, or if your just using paint and clear coat, you could get away with wet sanding it with 400 grit. The cleanness comes from a lengthy process like I explained to tony. I use various things to make sure I get rid of all the dust inside as much as possible out, and have even this little ion tool which repels the dust just enough for me to grab the front clear lense that I already cleaned and put it back together. Well just e-mail me and let me know what you want to do and i'll be more then happy to help you out

Deepa - do you mean it's worth it to do it in the ebay proejctor headlights? I did one for aquadi or.. Jack, he recently got into an accident and I redid it for him and repaired it, here's a link to the ebay projector style ones: http://www.hidplanet.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5040

so those are the blackhousing aftermarket oem type headlights with a retro????

all of that would set you back $500, or $500 plus the cost of the lights?

looks great.

Every quote I give to someone is slightly different, in the case of Tony, he already had the hid hardware and he supplied me with the projectors. I always have these parts in stock for the cilents to use, I let them buy the parts off me at my cost but it's their incentive that it's all in one place, doesn't have to be shipped and they get it at the price I got htem at.

The 500 was just labor and the bezel to go in the front. Your missing the actual housing, the projectors and hid hardware. My typical cilent spends anywhere from 1000-2000 dollars and some exceptional case higher or double that for totally custom one of a kind work. Whoever really wants their work done to the highest caliber really needs to e-mail me to discuss the different options and various things that goes into a custom headlight like this. But at the end it'll all be worth it like they say and it's something you get to put your words into and you get to have the headlights the way you wanted them to look like if they came from the factory.

And Markus, what shroud or bezel are you looking for?!... haha e-mail me I might have it anyways.

And again thanks for the comment guys. If I drive down to San Diego for a group install, it has to be closing in at night and have to find a place for my girlfriend and I to stay.. and gas has to be paid both ways but could be split.. haha I made it down in one tank from here down tO LA... 415 miles on a tank of 15 gallon gas hehe... driving my daily driving 1989 accord lol... weekend is the red sports car ...

Best Regards,
Larry
