well, finally started on my much anticipated FX-R retro with level motors...!! i know, i know, its going to take me awhile to finish them too, but i decided to document some stuff just in case you guys want to try it as well.
here is a link to the thread that gave me the idea to do this. all the electronic wiring is exactly the same, as i tested it today.
first off, ordered an OEM level switch from a 04-09 toyota sienna XLE version ONLY (as this is the only model that comes w/ HIDs from my understanding)! this switch (PN 84152-33030) will fit and matches our slots perfectly.
here are some pics of the level motor. dont know the PN, but its from 2003+ celicas w/ HID headlights, and most likely other toyota/lexus vehicles w/ HIDs as well.
here are some pics of the level motor completely retracted and completely extended. i get about 0.156" of travel. did some math, and even w/ my bed loaded w/ 1600#, i will still be able to level out my headlights!!
test fitted the motors today. here is a vid showing the reflector (and therefore the projector when mounted) moving ever so slightly. this movement will raise/lower the cutoff. vids of this can be found on youtube now, and i will post my actual one when completed.
been busy doing retros for two other guys, so finally got to get back to this one...
the following series of shots is how i mounted the motors. i used that two part epoxy putty stuff to fill in and give a more solid mounting surface...enjoy! im aiming to finish this thing by next weekend as a i have a roadtrip to CO and it sure would be nice to have these lights installed before them....so check back often!
