Yes. Leave enough for the h4 adapter to sit in the grooves still. I left the adapter on so I knew when to stop.

Wow.

May as well do the FXR.

The whole point with the H1 and D2S retrofits was that no mods were needed to the housing.

I agree. I was a little upset to find out the hard way. That was the whole reason I got the D2s...

Just to be clear, the H1 minis still have enough threads/the proper nut to fit inside a 12-14 headlight correct?

Hey, been following the forum for awhile, also jumped on the group sale......ended up putting these in my Saab rather than the Tacoma but I got to agree, very disappointed with the 3.0s mounting hardware----the hexagonal nut was impossible to fit without grinding down the back of my assembly so I ended up just skipping it and used just the knurled one (H4 adapter plate+bulb+spring+knurled lock nut). Am I just waiting to hit a bump and the projector will come lose? It looks like the mounting nuts from 2.0 were easier to install---- what were they, just round, with silicon washers/bands in between? Maybe I should be sending this question to TRS but are the 2.0 mounting nuts compatiblewith the 3.0s, and if so can they be ordered as replacement parts?

You can for sure order parts from trs. Just give them a call and they will sort you out with no problems. Now when comparing the 2.0 to the 3.0 I haven't seen much about them with comparing compatible parts. Just give them a call and they will help you out.

Correct. Still much easier than an FX-R since you know the aim is spot on.

Nothing in between.
Large silicone washer in the reflector bowl, feed through, 3-pronged centering washer, round knurled nut, lamp, couple of tensioning washers, rear round knurled cap, done.

From the looks of the picture above, the threads are shorter, so the bowl still needs to be trimmed.

Are the 2.0 unchanged, or are they now using the same hardware as the 3.0?

The 3.0 uses a new hex-type hardware but we will also start including additional hardware soon (that fits Toyota H4 flanges without trimming).

There is a "pre-production" (silver bowl) and "production" (black bowl) version of the 3.0 in distribution.

Andrew, whats the latest on the GB tally? I inquired about the Bi-Xenon PNP upgrade kit and Jamielle got back to me with some good info.
Naturally, I have more questions... I just put an HID kit in before I joined the forum and I now have buyers remorse, ha
I'm looking into returning or using what I already have to save a couple bucks but if I can hack it (through the GB) and I'll just buy the kit.
Thanks man!

per Andrew TRS (2 pages before this I think)
The GB is for only the kits listed on the first page and not individual parts.



You'll have to get a complete stage 3 kit (comes with bulbs, shrouds, projector, ballasts, and relay)

He also did say if you already ordered a full kit you can get a upgrade kit.

So how do I get this "additional hardware"? I bought under the assumption there were no mounting changes and now have a projector I cannot use.
