    20210327_110809.jpg 20210327_110804.jpg Update:
    Lights are on. I need to make some tweaks but I need to order a socket to loosen the nut on the projector and rotate slightly. The cutoff lines aren't even, but should be easily fixed without taking everything apart. I also need to get resistors for the switchbacks, or figure out what other settings I can tweak in alfaobd.

    Looks awesome! Great job! What did you use to seal them back up?

    I used the morimoto retro rubber. Man is that stuff sticky when it heats up.
    So, took some time to aim them, still need some tweaking, but its hard to find flat ground and a wall all in the same area.
    Haven't had a chance to drive around in the dark yet, but output against my wall at home is very bright. 20210327_190307.jpg 20210327_190325.jpg

    So far, I still need to tweak the cutoff lines. I was messing with it last night and my crooked ass driveway is making it difficult to adjust. Output wise, I think I'll be very happy once I get the cutoff lines straight. However, the high beams, wow. They are absolutely insane. I need to polish the headlight lenses and I may run a bead of sealant around the edges to make sure no moisture gets in. I figured out my switchbacks, no resistors, no errors.

    Little update, some output shots. On the road and on the wall. I may still tweak the passengers side some, but I may just leave it alone as well. 20210329_223733.jpg 20210329_223737.jpg 20210329_222136.jpg 20210329_222127.jpg

    Thanks, now that I did it, I almost want to try again but this time do a full chrome setup on the quads that I am not using now. From a distance the black looks good, but as you get closer you can see all the small paint imperfections. Plus, the chrome probably would have looked a little better on the front end of my truck. I'm pretty confident that I could pull off a similar build with no painting in just a few hours. I think once my buffer gets here and I can get the lenses polished up a bit better, they'd start to pop a bit more and grow on me.

    I have a set of quads that @the_goodguy07 took off his 1500 when he put the Alfarex on his truck in my garage .... I need to do something to them now lol ... I am going to probably start on them this weekend maybe even tomorrow.... cook them and opened them up to start prepping them for new paint ....

    I ordered all my stuff from www.thelightingguru.net
    The guy commented on a post on Facebook and he literally walked me through every step and helped me choose the parts that would work best/easiest. I wouldn't hesitate to order from him again. If you go this route, I can send you the parts list that I used.
    Word of advice, if you're painting chrome housings do the oven cleaner method on the chrome to strip the chrome off. I skipped this step but wish I hadn't.
