Morimoto Mini D2S Retrofit(finally satisfied)

completed my retrofit a couple weeks ago. love the light output but I wasn't really satisfied with the light housing it was in. I love the stock look, so I went ahead and just transfer the projectors in a pair of OEM TRD Sport headlights. I love the look of it, very satisfield here, and it's gratifying to see the work that I've done.

this was the ebay headlights that I first used for the retro. you could see that it's smoke, but in person it's a little darker.



and here's my finally completed retro. loving it . light output pics coming soon. tell me what you guys think.

painted my shield red to have that red cool effect haha

thanks man. that was my first mistake, going aftermarket. ran to a few issue on those aftermarket housing. so for those of you who's gonna go this route, I highly suggest sticking with OEM.

projector output shots

finally got the chance to take some output pics. pics doesn't really justify how nice it really is in person. excuse the plant, my stall is in front of it haha. it ain't perfect but it is the easy to install mini D2S(TRS). let me know what you guys think. bulbs are 6000K, pure white. sooo nice

drivers view.


zoom in from driver side.


highs.

I like them as well.......I did a BHLM which came out nice but I've wanted to do some projectors for a bit. Although I have a blue/black them going I like the stock headlights on our trucks and the projector looks very nice and almost stock itself inside there.

Well done OP and I def agree that the new ones go with your truck better. The originals would look sick on my truck though

I saw that. That sucks. I'm not brave enough to take my headlights apart. I need someone in NC that knows how to do that.

that's how I felt before doing the mod. that's why I went with mini D2S from TRS. little to no modification at all, and it came out pretty well. do it man. you have the support of TW community

adio, that is a sick retrofit! Probably the best I have seen. Of course with your meshed out grill (satoshi?) and the silver paint....mouth watering.
