Retrofitted Morimoto H1 Projectors

SOLD
Hello, summer school and fall semester is right around the corner. Need money for tuition. Reducing to $250!
I have a pair of retrofit projectors. Specifically,
-these are OEM headlights (Stanley) that are black housed.
-The retrofits include Morimoto H1 projectors
-Morimoto H1 Bulbs 5000k.
-Morimoto 3Five Ballasts
-E46 shrouds.
-The headlights are wrapped with a clear bra? or film to protect any nicks or scratches and provides a smooth feeling, as smooth as a baby's cheeks. -Headlights are well taken care of and waxed quite often (keep the clear film/bra smooth).
-The projectors can be adjusted left/right, up and down.
The only con I can think of is a white burn mark? It is at the corner of the headlight which will be circled red.
-Reduced to $250Shipping at buyer's expense




Money Shot

given the cost of parts this is a pretty good deal for those that want a basic retrofit.

For those that don't have the tools/oven space/patience this would be a quick way to get a significant boost in light output

Bump for a super good deal....it is not easy to fit the MH1 in these lights either without modification...same goes for the e46 shroud.

Really tempted to pick these up but it looks like the right side projector needs to be rotated counter clockwise just a touch.

Okay so I'm in the middle of the retrofit now..

I got the mini h1's, the e-46 replica that TRS sells, as well as their shroud centric rings. The centric rings are not listed under the compatibility chart on TRS to work with the e-46 style shroud and the mini h1..but I can almost get it to fit. On the inside of the shroud there are two big prongs that neither help nor hinder the install, but there are 3 little risers around the perimeter of the inside of the shroud that interfere with the shroud centric ring. I'm thinking of trimming the centric ring so that it lines up better with the risers, but even then it seems to be of slightly too large a diameter of a ring, so i might make a cut in it to remove a sliver of material, and let compression take care of the rest.

Does that make sense? I can show you pics if you want, but i figure you saw these obstacles yourself. How did you mount the shroud to the mini h1?

Also, when you say you cut the shroud, you didn't have to mess with the flat bottom part right? Just the top edge of the circle? Or what about the sides? I'm test fitting it now and the round "top" is without question gonna need cutting (assuming the flat bottom is referred to as "bottom") but it also looks like the sides are almost too big.

Looking forward to your input.

Sh*t, I just realized you didn't perform the retrofit yourself. Well everyone else then, be aware that its not as easy as it looks to get your retro to look like his, with that particular shroud, so that makes them even more of a convenience to outright buy instead of make yourself.

Yeah, I had shipped to Texas to get the retrofit done. I thought about doing it myself, but then I would just be driving myself crazy -_-"
