Default retro fit projector headlight Q?

Didnt want to bump and old thread so here we go.

My stock headlights have had it. I buff them out a few times but its just time for some new ones.
I have always wanted the retro fit projector but last i new they cost an arm and a leg.

Till i found this :

https://www.d-series.org/forums/diy-f...-00-civic.html

So its a diy and its stupid easy to do if i understand everything right.
Get the projector , crack the head light, and pop them in.

So this (pic pulled from thread ^)

would be the projector body with all its washer on it and it pops in the oem chrome part of the head lights.

Then locks down via the oem h4 bulb holder

CORRECT??


Now I have found these, will these work?
New Car Xenon 2 5" Mini Bixenon Projector Lens HID H4 H7 Shroud Silver as Gift | eBay

Also let me know if im correct. The red and black wire from the projector goes the the shield motor. when it gets power it moves and gives you a brighter light CORRECT?

Just trying to get everything figured out.
Ill be doing this next month with a pair for new headlights.

I just finished my retro in my 92 hatch using morimoto fx-r projectors. I was initially looking at their mini h1, which is what you have shown. From what I've gathered, yes, it's supposed to be as straight forward as separating the housings and screwing everything in, then setting the horizontal aim before you seal them up.

The 2 wires control the bi-xenon function of the projector. You connected them to your high beam power wire and a ground. When you switch to high beams, the projector solenoid is powered and a second cutoff shield pops up higher than the low beam shield and projects the light higher and more concentrated to the center of the road.
I would try to find some examples of the cutoff produced by whatever projector you decide to go with. Although morimoto are a bit expensive, I went with them for peace of mind and am not disappointed!

Super easy to do. Just buy the whole kit from theretrofitsource. Let me know if you do because I have a discount code from a tacoma forum. The kit comes with everything needed, I think it's the elite system. They have a good warranty and great customer service

Theretrofitsource is going to be some of the best quality stuff you can get besides OEM - which in most cases they offer too. It will also come with everything in one box. If you want to save some money the ebay lenses are similar in function and maybe a bit lower in quality. Just make sure they're being shipped from the USA and that the mounting style is for the same stock bulb your car uses. You'll also need a bulb/ballast kit and a dedicated harness is optional but highly recommended.

The ebay projector housings will almost always use an H1 HID bulb, so any HID bulb/ballast kit with an H1 base will work. Personally I am running a Kensun 6000k 35w kit in my Integra since May 2014 and they're very nice. They have a nice hint of blue but next time I'd try the 55w kit with 6000k or 35w kit with 5000k because I prefer white over any blue tint.

The harness, Kensun HID's, and lenses can be purchase on both Ebay & Amazon.
