Thanks for the review Primitive, really appreciate it!

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Not related to Sportsmobiles, but here is a set of lights I built for a 2009 Dodge Ram pickup recently that came out really nice and appear very close to original.

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

I have a set of black and chrome lights with no led drl that need to be sold. I built them up for a member who backed out. I will let them go for $330 shipped ($400 value). Let me know who wants them via email to Stredbull18@gmail.com. For those of you on the fence, this is a great chance to save some coin!

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

I still have my new lights sitting on the bench, but sadly I'm 1500 miles away. Once I get done with work I look forward to installing them and being able to see at night. Then its off to Baja.........

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Comparison of projector (left) vs. non-projector (right) HID install. Very happy with the results, thanks Scott!

My old HID's were 4500k, guessing the ones that Scott sent me are 6000k. The garage door is grey so it might be throwing off the white balance.

Re: Ford E-Series Van HID Projector Retrofit lights

Here are some before and after install photos submitted by a recent customer. This set features the led daytime running lights at the bottom and the halo around the face of the projector shroud. Came out real good!

For the light color issues above, give the bulbs a little time to burn in. They will reach their intended color shortly.
