I've had hood struts since I bought the car. After having a set on my WRX a few years ago, it makes working in the bay way nicer.

Both my Miatas have had good struts - so this is a problem I did not even think about. You’ll either need to get struts, or keep the hood prop in the trunk and prop it somewhere when working on the car.

for the relays, I bolted mine down to the lower radiator overflow bolt.

That was what was thinking of doing with the relays, did you have to make the hole larger to fit? Looks like a different size bolt.

Got mine installed today. They look great! Really cleared up a lot of room in the engine bay.

What did you find best to get the lights aimed and pointed in the right direction? If you remove the clear lens from the bumper, could you get to the adjusters?

I am able to get to the adjusters on mine with the clear lens removed.

I start with them cranked as tight as possible, then loosen each corner until lined up.

Well the car has not moved since i installed the headlights and one halo is already not working. It seems to be on the projector connector that connects to the harness if i play around with the wires i can get it to turn on so i gotta dig into the hot melt and re wire it

PM me if you would like a replacement.

I don’t have any halos in stock right now since I’m not planning any GB but I can get a new one for you.

thanks for letting me know. I will probably remove that connector in future runs. I thought it would provide value but it hasn’t

Finally got my headlights installed. You cannot access the upper screws to adjust headlights with bumper on. My right headlight has a weird shadow blocking a portion in front of the car. Any ideas how to fix that? Pulling the bumper tomorrow to better aim the lights I have to get them pointed down a bit more

on my car I actually can hit the upper adjustment screws with a long screwdriver. As I said in E-mail your Lights need to be adjusted. The “shadow” is actually due to the cutoff shield inside the projector. When properly adjusted it allows you to aim the lights higher than you normally would be able and not blind oncoming traffic.

it may be best to adjust them one at a time so you’re sure what light is doing what. Unplug one side or throw a blanket over one side to do them one at a time.

That was my first thought as well, Got it all straight over e-mail.

The main cutoff line you see is actually for the left, pointed way too far right. The cutoff line for the left one is way high, just under the SUV in the pic. I asked him to point the right projector further to the right.

The right projector is also pointing too far inward. You can see the cutoff just below the SUV in the background,
