Just ordered myself a set of morimoto minis ... anything I should also get before they get here? I have a dremel tool as well but the site says that there is little to no trimming needed

i used a gnarly file instead of a dremel, and literally the install is straight forward. just take your time!!!

I used a dremel to trim my shrouds so they fit nicer against he reflector bowl. I also did mine before they had the ring to lock the shrouds to the projector so I used some high temp rtv to mount the shrouds.

Congrats, I started my retro last year but just got around to finishing it up and mounted on the truck. Here is an output picture after I got them aimed. Still need to drive around and see if I need any minor adjustments.


Let me know if you have any questions along the way.

Well I go to put my minis back into my truck ... ran the harness and hooked it all up and its not working -_- what the fuck!! Call TRS .. matt and he walked me through a few things ... turns out it was a bad harness and the only way I found that out was I put the solenoid leads to the ballast input and my drover side worked but when I plugged in the passenger side my driver side fuse blew so something funky is happening but matt from TRS is sending me a new harness ... thanks again matt from TRS I appreciate your time and help even though I stumped you haha
