This is the projector housing I used:
Bi-xenon: Morimoto Mini H1 5.0 - HID Projectors from The Retrofit Source Inc

Here are the bulbs:(had to be VERY slightly modified to fit the housing)
HELLA H83115001 H1 12V/55W Halogen Bulb : Amazon.com : Automotive HELLA H83115001 H1 12V/55W Halogen Bulb : Amazon.com : Automotive


and here is the relay kit:
Bi-xenon: 'MotoControl 9003/H4/HB2 - Relay Harnesses from The Retrofit Source Inc

I wasn't interested in Xenon lights so this was all I needed.

If you want Xenon lights just buy this entire kit:

Can you get some shots of the output on a wall of just one projector with you parked around 30-40ft? I'm very intrested to see how they preform with a halogen bulb.

Any idea how much weight you saved?

Thumbs up

Finished my setup tonight. I am happy with the weight savings and they give me plenty of light or what I need. The brackets were scrapped together from some spare aluminum and you can see the beam vibrating at idle in the garage but nothing you can notice while driving.
