Completed an HID projector retrofit. My first one ever. It was a bit of a PITA and there were surely some lessons learned, but this is a HUGE improvement over my OEM lights, which were in terrible shape.

Before:


After:


Some shots of the project... I started out with a pair of headlights I purchased on Craigslist. They were in pretty good shape (especially compared to mine), but I wanted them to look brand new. I used the typical oven method to disassemble them. Once disassembled, I tinted out the amber corner reflectors with VHT Night Shades paint. I also used the Night Shades on the OEM reflector inside the housings, but I used about 5 coats to give them a "black chrome" look. I then used satin black paint on the trim ring after sanding the factory chrome off of them. For my lights, I used the basic H1 bi-xenon projectors (the ones that don't require any trimming) with "mini gatling gun" shrouds, and I painted the shrouds with some "aluminum" colored paint, because I think it looks nicer than the cheap chrome that they came finished with. Once they were re-assembled, I used a headlight restore kit on the lenses before spraying a few layers of acrylic clear coat on them to protect them from hazing up as bad my old ones did. Once the clear coat was dry, I polished the crap out of it for hours and hours to give it a crystal clear finish.









Out with the old, and in with the new:

This past Friday I started the process of taking my engine apart to replace my intake gaskets. This is definitely a work in progress, stopped for today.

My nut rivet tool came in today so I replaced all of the broken frame nuts. This tool is awesome!



I installed all of the new Schrock skid plates minus the transfercase skid. I measured and re-measured to make sure I can mod this thing for the Xterra. Looks like its going to work out perfect once I chop it up.

Added an ARB bumper.  Took way longer than I thought, but the plastic is cut perfectly.  Lots of little problems, but none were insurmountable.

I finished up the final skid to the puzzle after work. No where to cut this thing down so busted out the grinder and propped it against the trash can. What could possibly go wrong?



A few zips, here and there a splash of paint.





Its done and mounted, hard as a rock! Im actually surprised how well this turned out, fits perfectly.

I might need to borrow this. You should add this to the toolbox thread.

I recently started on my armor goals with this rear diff skid. And of course painted it blue to match the rest of my emblems.
