Default Stealth N/A Turn signal headlights GB#2!

***Due to personal issues, and shipping delays GB Closed early 11/13! I would not be able to deliver another 5 sets on time at this point***

All,

I've finally secured suppliers for the next round of Stealth NA headlights!

Availability: Up to 10 sets
Close date: November 19th
Target delivery: Early/Mid December.

Inspired by Aidanj's guide here.This is what you get:

-2 Genuine Hella 60mm low beam projector modules w/55w bulbs and mounting hardware
- Switchback halo lights (white/amber) for parking and turn signal attached to the projector
- Plug 'n Play wire harnesses for headlights / turn signals /park lamps
- Modified crystal clear depo turn signal housings
- Shipping, tracking, insurance within U.S.
- detailed installation instructions
- Weight savings and much more light output!
- each unit tested before shipment

Things to consider:
- This is low beam only, but it's been my experience so far this is plenty of light on a street car. Light output is far better than stock low beam.
- when it comes to headlight covers, you're on your own. There are several options here, including race hoods without headlight cutouts, or the nice rivet on brackets from Singular motorsports.
- I don't know the lighting laws in your area, so its going to be up to you to make sure you're not violating any laws.
- your turn signals will flash fast. I don't currently provide a solution for that - but there are DIY writeups out there.
- Moisture buildup behind the parking light lenses will sometimes happen. This is due to the modified lenses having an open back to accommodate the projector.
- This WILL require cutting on on your car in the front apron area to accommodate the size of the projectors. You will still be able to go back to your stock headlights - and those cuts won't be visible - but a car is only original once. Priming & painting the cut area to prevent rust is STRONGLY recommended

Payment:
- $100 deposit to get on the list
- $190 final payment to cover balance before shipping early/mid December ($265 +$25 shipping)
- Paypal - mx5tuner at gmail.com
- yes, cost has come up since last time. It's still the lowest cost, lightest weight headlight kit out there.
- I'd like to drop the price if we hit a certain number, but I'm just not moving enough of these to get any volume discount.

OK guys - I know there are some people waiting until near the end of GB to get on board - but if we can go ahead and get two more orders I can most likely deliver the first batch of 5 early!

Got it, Thank you!

One more and I will begin ordering parts. If that comes today or tomorrow, we could be about a week ahead of schedule.

All,

5 deposits have been received. All of the parts to assemble the kits are scheduled to arrive by November 21. Because of some of the delays associated with some parts of the kits, and the fact that I have to prepare for the holidays and other issues, I have to close the group buy today. I simply would not have time to prepare another 5 kits for early/mid December. If there is still demand I can do another run in January. To those who have sent deposits - Thank you! and your kit will be available on time.

Another quick update... All of the housings are done, and the halos have all been wired up. The harnesses are going to look sweet with the red/black sleeving.. Here are the halos

Most of the halos were attached tonight, just the final wiring remains.

Hella shorted me some hardware, unfortunately. As soon as I get that hardware in and get these wired up, we will be good to go. I suspect these will be completed this weekend, and I'll be ready to accept final payment and ship Dec. 3rd.

Ok Guys, made some great progress over the weekend. Everything is complete except for wiring for two halos, and the previously mentioned hardware issue. I should be ready to accept final payment in the next day or so. Until then, here's a preview of some of the completed halos/projectors. These have all been tested on my car and are working great. I really liked how the wiring turned out. The red/black techflex is really sweet.

If all goes as planned, the last pair of lights will be finished and tested tonight. I've received the missing hardware as well.

I also can't wait for you to get these installed. I haven't had any feeback yet from the last GB :(

Really? I already have my bumper off and just finished the Singular light brackets last night. I was going to ask for the instructions sooner than the projected ship date just so I could cut everything needed ASAP. LOL
