    Hey, new here, ( used to be a taco owner )

    just retrofitted my friend new Taco

    a local shop sells the projectors new for $95 a pair , they are Mini H1's. Cheaper than anywhere i could find online. install was straight forward and took 30mins to retrofit. didnt need any cutting. If anyone local needs help doing so lmk

    just fine, lol never had a headlight leak on me

    most ppl get fogged lights because they completely seal up their housings and the rear breather ports.

    Yeah, ive been trying to convince my friend to let me retro his taco, he finally agree'd when i found him banging deal on Morimotos

    in all costed $95 for projectors $20 for hi/lo harness and $40 for H1 kit from DDM. def worth the $150 upgrade. Will post more pics when i get it

    you could make some cash on here if you buy those kits and sell them here. seems like a great deal.

    yes nice mini H1's dude compared to the d2's its night and day lol i have been trying to tell peoples this for months now. they look fucking awesome! where did you pick these bad boy's up for 95 bucks? thats a nice deal you got there man.

    the H1's have a ton of color and are wide as shit dude just a tad shorter than the fx-r and thats splitting hairs they are just a great little piece of gear.

    nice work i hope more see this thread and understand the difference and just how big it actually is.

    lol i'm waiting for more shots of these:popcorn: i'm thinking of doing a set myself in my fogs and running a quad set-up and i would love to see more of the beam to determine if they would match up nicely with my current set.

    Nice! How's the warranty on these things? The Retrofitsource has one year warranty and if something goes wrong with any part, they ship you a new part without having to ship the part with the problem and you get it in about 3 days. Awesome customer service.
