Default Finished my retrofit

Did these in about 8 hours. The 2014 housings opened up nice and easy, and the EVOX-R bolts right in. I wish I had ordered the 6" xBLed strips but oh well.

I'm sure he had to drill for the strip wiring. But they look awesome. Need to do this one day to my lights.

Drilling tiny holes in the shrouds for mounting the halos and strips with wire, but other than that - No. The old projector unbolts and the EVOX-R bolts right in. Alignment is a breeze lol.

Ordered the housings from TRS, so they were delivered without the bulb and ballast - so no before shots sadly.

I was running a blacked out set of FX-R retrofits, which I enjoyed but these look so much better. the CBI bulbs at 50w are something to write home about, I can tell you that.

I've been wanting to do this to my lights and I like what you did with the LED strips. Is there enough room to do the 6 inch strips?Also, did you just reuse the shrouds? Because I kinda like the look of the oem shrouds but don't know if I can reuse as I've never done a retrofit.

Nice work, agreed the 6 inch would fill the lines nicer, but good work!

Definitely enough room for the 6 inch.

OEM shrouds go back on perfectly.
