    Does anyone have a picture or a spare lock ring for there retrofitted headlights... I will need a picture of it prior to buying it because mine are not from TRS but they may be the same lock ring... let me know thanks. It's the one that holds the projector in the housing... I'm sure for you guys that have done a retrofit know what i'm talking about.

    I NEED one of these...

    I'm assuming you have an LS kit? By the looks of it the lock ring looks pretty similar to the one on my TRS kit. Worth a try

    yep call mat at trs and check to see if the retaining ring from the mini projector will fit your set up. or just wing it and give it a shot the rings are only a few bucks.

    what brand projector do you have? also where did you buy them that you can't call them and just get another ring? trs is great matt and nate are both really nice and have a lot of knowledge and quality products.

    I didn't man... It sucks but you have to buy another set or make your own... I just make my own... Go to the plumbing section and find something that will work... that's what I did... I had to use a dremel to thin out a piece of plumbing pipe...

    damn. i wonder why there wouldn't be some place that sells these? i mean like i said they are very flimsy. luckily i just talked to the guy and he just overnighted it to me (on my dime of course). i am really happy that he had a spare.
