Friday afternoon I got started on my Morimoto Mini D2S retrofit. I ordered the Mini D2S Stage III Kit from Matt @ TRS back at the end of February. Here is what I ordered: Mini D2S Projectors, Morimoto 3Five Ballasts, Apollo Shrouds and Osram 66240 Bulbs. First things first I removed the headlights off of my truck and proceeded to install the H4 wiring harness and Morimoto Ballasts. The overall appearance I was going for was an OEM look to everything. I mounted the relay in a position that seemed like it would be the most protected and out of the way. I also decided to mount my ballasts off the side of my radiator supports. I have never seen anyone else do it like this, I think it looks better and is more supported then using velcro to attach the ballast to the side of the headlight itself.
Once the headlights were off the truck I baked one at a time at 300F for 10mins and they came apart easily enough. Mounting the projectors was very simple, everyone knows if you have an H4 headlight these projectors are plug and play, which they were. Once I installed both projectors I took them out to my truck for a quick test fire and sure enough they started up no problem. The Osram bulbs fire up a brilliant bluish-white and turn to the 4300K color in about 15 seconds. I can't wait until they colorshift a bit as brand new they are a bit on the yellowish side.
Once I knew everything was ok it was time to seal the headlights back up. I placed my lens on my headlight and put them back in the oven to heat up the butyl. Once they were warm enough I used my hands and spring clamps to get them back together. Then it was time to reinstall all the plastic pieces from the headlight and get them back on the truck.
All I have left to do now is wait for nightfall so I can properly aim the projectors and take some nighttime beam shots. Overall this was a very easy retrofit, I took my time doing everything and I think it came out perfect. I believe it looks very OEM which was exactly what I was going for. I would like to thank Matt @ TRS once again for all his help over the past few months getting me exactly what I wanted. If anyone has any questions regarding anything please feel free to ask...thanks...now on to the pics...
