    Been working on these in my spare time (limited), and now I finally have some pics from my iphone.
    They are almost done, and hopefully I'll have pics of them on the truck by next week.
    Comments welcome :cool:

    Nice!

    Is that an HID retrofit?

    If so, what parts did you use?

    Did you buy one of those cheap aftermarket projector kits? (Please say no)

    I used a set of xenon projectors from a mercedes benz E350.

    I've seen only a few tacomas do this including the one that delmarva posted, but I didn't like the idea of keeping the chrome reflector in the back ground, so I made the shroud, and modified two bezels from the same head light that I took the projectors from.

    Used the same projector in my srt4 when I retro'd those lights 3 years ago. Still holding strong too.

    headlights are dirty in this pic, but you get the idea

    thanks for the comments guys. Had the shop full this week so I couldn't get them on. Hopefully next week because then I go away for school for the week of the 9th, so I won't be around to do it then... Still gotta wire up the xenons.

    I really think that is one of the factors why people stay away from projector retrofit. That and price and fear of taking their headlights apart.
