My Projector Retro By Rz Designs

Got them in the mail today and naturally couldn't wait to put them on. As a side note, I'm a sucker for a well packaged box and Rye pulled it off.

On to the pics:

I painted my housings with a high-temp "aluminum" paint since my reflective surface wasn't looking too hot.

Final product. Looks a little wonky, but it's just the lighting and iPhone pics:

Before (E-codes and 5k HIDs):

After (4.3k HIDs):

I've since aimed them up a little more. High beams are ridiculous. I can finally see shit at night. What a concept!

Overall, the kit was awesome. It did take a little bit of fabbing and wiring, but nothing bad at all. Super pleased with how it turned out. I'll try to get a better daytime pic tomorrow and post it up. Until then, nice work RZ!

Cheers!

Neither am I. :( Too much of a gap around the trim piece for the projector.

Well there's supposed to be a trim piece that you can put there, but I opted to leave it off. I like it better without.

You need to shoot your compare photos in manual or time value.

The light output looks great, but the headlights themselves look fubar. Do you have a pic from further away?

not liking them at all....function fine, cosmetics negative 10

just doesn't look right...doesn't flow with the car....maybe going a dark color in the bowls and the HID surrounds would help, along with dark corners?

something else needs to be done....looks out of place

the output is fantastic.

as for the look, it seems the projector has to sit further back in the headlight to get rid of the gap around the projector shroud.

Black headlights and corners are the equivalent to black wheels. No.
