finished my FX-R Stage III

just thought i'd share my retro build with TW. Did lots of reading and got a question answered by AsianAnts and pretty much just went with it, I'm pretty happy with my results.

FX-R Stage III kit
Morimoto 5five 50watt
6000k
Gatling shrouds
Inside CCFL angel eyes

started off with temps so i could take my time, was cheap and even blacked them out and resealed them before sticking them in.


















first shot at the wall, got the height adjusted and adjusted one projector slightly.





getting detailed

I'd say around 480 which includes my second set of headlghts for temps. I bought the kit from a group buy so i saved there. I kinda overkilled on supplies. I wouldn't mind doing them again though, as i read in one of the thread for BHLM you get better as you go and taking my time gave me a better end results.

Ya the grill I think was in November. I'm the same way, been working on retrofiting some old fog lights with 9w LED's for reverse lights, along with the other 3-4 things I'm doing.

Could defientaly use some pointers about the BHLM, was thinking of using ebay lights but I think I'll just paint them.

Looking good!

The FX-R's are great projectors and going with the 4300 bulbs gives you such a nice light output!
