Default Little update has been updated a bit more. Now w/more pics

Update 12/16/11: Added 95 tails!!! So I lazily washed my ***** and took out the Nikon. Also got my alignment readjusted, was able to remove another degree of camber using the stock adjusters, so the front is now down to -2* camber(was previously at -3*)

side2 by frontwheelfanatic, on Flickr


Light output!!

Quad retro by frontwheelfanatic, on Flickr


Sorta rolling by frontwheelfanatic, on Flickr



12/7/11-Small update for my POS, I did a quad retrofit! I redid the TSX retrofit in my low beams and managed to shoehorn in some Bixenon FX-R projectors into the high beams. The highbeam retrofit is still in "beta" LOL so i didn't put shrouds or wet sand the the fluting out of the lens. This was more of a proof of concept attempt for myself, Gonna rip them apart again soon to add shrouds and maybe remove the fluting from the lens.

I also added an H3 PnP kit into my foglights(which have es300 fogs retrofitted in) and modded the corner light to come on as a running light as well as function as a blinker.


It was late so I didn't feel like taking out my dslr for proper pics so I just used my epic touch's camera-







I also switched up my mini N1's to Megas........ but they hang so damn low!









Small insignificant, update I know but i was kinda excited and wanted to share

Nice job on retrofitting! I'd love to see some night shots of those great cut offs. There are too many SC's with plug 'n play HID kit with glare and it's nice to see someone do it right.

Looks very good on your car. Aggressive wheels and an aggressive exhaust. Looks sweet.

TY, I honestly hate PnP kits. I only put them in the fogs cuz I had the kit laying around and with the ES300 fogs they dont glare at all and are a lot brighter.

The cutoff line is nice when its just the TSX projectors, but with all 4 on the fx-r's throw a little light above the cutoff due to the fluting in the high beam lens. This doesnt bother me though cuz it's not glaring for other drivers and it helps light up street/freeway sign. Something that the sharp TSX projectors don't do very well.

me too, maybe then these things would be a tad louder

Yeah I damaged my paint cuz I used a 5lb sledge hammer to do the flaring. When I got the car it had crease in the driver quarter panel that wasn't allowing me to pull the fender with fender roller.... so I said F it and went to town.

If/when I get it painted it'll be a full respray so you won't be able to see how well it does/doesn't matches

It doesn't help that the car is so low
