It's been a while since I've done anything new to my car or updated this thread. Much longer then I though actually.... Almost 2 years!
Over the winter I decided that I wanted to look into some lighting upgrades. I didn't go straight to the LED headlights because I was actually not a fan at first. They have since grown on me and I will probably grab a set when I find a good deal at some point.
I was also not sure how I felt about the squared off LED fog light cut offs in the round housing but I am also not a huge fan of the stock halogen fog lights.
Here is what I came up with.....
Phillips Ultinon 6000k Flash White low beams
Projector fog lights with black housings and angle eyes (that only work with the fogs on)
Morimoto 3 Five kit with 6000k H1c bulbs and custom spec. harnesses from TRS
I also already had LED city lights and PUTCO DLR/high beams as part of a previous upgrade that included Garax low beam bulbs.
I really like the projector fogs. I haven't seen them used before on an ISF and I think they match the low beam projectors much better then the OEM Halogen Fogs.
The bulb I'm using for the projector is an H1 and after talking to TRS (The Retorfit Source) they put together a 3 Five kit that switches me from H11 to H1 using Motimoto Ballasts. They suggested that the Morimoto 6000k H1c bulb would match the Ultinon Flash White and they where spot on.
The light output is great, the car looks much cleaner with the fogs on or off and I don't get enough foreground light to drown out my visibility. With it all said and done, I'm very happy with the way it turned out.
Also well I was at it I decided now would be a good time to clean out all of the crap that my front end has ingested since the car was new. The A/C condenser was also loosing some of it's paint and the clips on the cooler lines where starting to get a little rust on them.
I must have spent an easy 30 minutes blowing sand, cigarette butts and leaves out of my radiator and condenser. I couldn't believe the crap I got out of it!
I also gave everything a fresh coat of black and swapped out the cooler line clamps for some Samco stainless line clamps.
