    I am not worried about heat. The Mini H1s will toss plenty of heat for the headlights. I retrofitted a set on an F-150 and went with D2S, and they always, minimally, melted the show or ice directly in the beam pattern. I only went with the LED hi-beam thing because I saw several posts that advised it was a perfect fit, and I did not want to leave it blank nor did I really want to mix HID / Halogen hi-beam. For an extra $80 and the splitters, seemed like a non-issue to me considering all the work going into them.
    Funny enough, my local news just did a report on headlights being unsafe in most modern cars, halogens were called out as less than adequate for night driving.

    I got the set of headlights in and as soon as TRS processes the several thousand orders and ships mine lol, I will get started.

    MAIL CALL!

    Got a new set of quad headlamps in to open up and create the Frankenstein headlight. Got to clean the lenses and work on ripping them apart.
    Ordered some Morimoto permaseal dissolver to aid in the process, will give it a go and write a review if it makes it easier.

    I also got word that the free black Friday etching is being done tomorrow and will ship shortly after that for the HID kit. Very excited to have everything on the way and get this started.

    Photos!!

    Took some time yesterday to read the Morimoto permaseal dissolver and am unsure if I even want to look at it. The warning on the label is enough to chuck Norris a little concerned. Pretty much you need a hazmat suit to use it, in room with at least 60% humidity so you don't risk a spark. I will try to post a photo later this afternoon.

    My thoughts exactly. It literally states "can cause cancer" on the label. I may end up sending it back, I am not sure.

    OEM lights, I got a steller deal on them, cheaper then the replicas.

    I have done permaseal lights before when I retrofitted a set of F-150 headlamps. It was a few hours each headlamp to get everything removed which is why I picked up the permaseal dissolver

    K just checking. You might be surprised how easy permaseal sometimes comes loose.. other times... it’s a pain in the d*ck and takes several heat cycles.

    Exactly. Probably jumped my light bill by $15-20 that night alone. lol.
    I was able to get some strips undone, other times it was just bits and shavings.
