    I'm looking for anyone who can help me out with installing Projectors on my truck. I've upgraded to HID however I want the full benefit, I don't have the tools or experience to do it myself so I'm asking anyone for some assistance or point me maybe to a shop. I will pay for your time of course, just let me know. THanks!

    A lot of benefits! HID's are already a big plus but you don't get the full benefit with just the OEM headlight. With projectors you will get a wider and brighter beam. Don't get me wrong my upgrade was a plus but I just love the fact it makes my truck feel more up to date.

    Thanks a bunch, these really look good!

    Anyone have issues with safety inspection on the island?

    AND yeah I did mean local, I don't have the confidence to do the mod so I would maybe have someone show me or maybe a DIY thread...

    I got a shitty camera but yeah there you go, everything put back together and works perfectly. As far as it being legal, I have not yet tried to get a recon permit and I don't plan on it so ill take my chances i guess. I drive like an old lady anyways so that should minimize my chances of getting pulled over.

    Nice job!

    I don't think HPD will hassle you for it, just be careful driving on Nimitz & near the airport...it's Sheriff territory and i've heard they ticket for that as much as they can.
