- What type of calk did you use to seal the housing back together?
- Can i use my HID kit in cunjunction with the projectors?
Also if you have any other suggestions feel free to post.
I havnt read up on the install your talking about so I dont know about the Heat gun or Oven, but it seems to me the Heat Gun would be easier to control dont ya think? But like I said I dunno the process for this idea, just saying if your looking to control the heat better I'd say Heat gun.
For Mounting it just remember of course to keep the car as level as you can and do the same thing with the projector. I'd almost be tempted to just make it adjustable if at all possible, to do fine tuning once its in there. If thats not an option then I'd say get a good flashlight that'll fit inside and a leveling device (bubble level, etc...), these are just ideas, like I said above I havnt read the full story on this, if you have a link can you post it so I can maybe give you more ideas?
I'd be tempted to use silicone rubber and apply it with a small brush. Its water proof, lasts 15 years, and bonds to pretty much anything. Just make sure to clean the area its applied to before you put it on, like with rubbing alcohol or something. Just be careful like always.
I'd really love to see the whole kit sale, idea, etc... somewhere online so I can read it and give you more/better/revised help. This sounds like a friggin SWEET thing to do.
Are you gonna put the Projection part in the High or Low beam area? If you put it in the High beam and keep the Low Beam setup with your HID's, then all you gotta do is make sure they both turn on when you turn your lights on, so tapping into the same turn on basicly. You may want to consider upgrading your wiring harness to a good quality harness with a Higher wattage load while your in there.
Good luck Bo Ku, this should be really darn sweet when your done. Just take your time and dont rush it, you dont want your job to look rushed anyway.
