      I still have all the leaf springs it is just a 4 inch angled block. I would suggest a 3 inch block and pull the middle leaf. If you look at my build I had a 1/16 of an inch gap from the bottom of the leaf to the rim. It was extremely close and I am still thinking about getting 3 inch blocks and pull the middle leaf

      I pulled the entire dash out and used a random orbital sander and 60 grit to get rid of the orange peel. I then stepped up to 120, 220, then hand wet sand at 400 and 600. Painted it then hand wet sanded again then painted it one last time. I will be doing a clear coat on it when it warms up so it will look even better when i am done.

      what were the steps to sanding your dash?

      and those lights are definitely cheap! i actually bought those fake projectors to cut up, they scatter light everywhere and are not a true projector, they are just for looks and a gimmick dont waste your money on those unless your gonna cut em up

      if you would really like to know allot more i would recommend signing up over at hidplanet.com i've learned allot from there, its pretty much everything you wanted to know about lighting, LED,HID, halogen

      but basically you do need a housing for the projector to protect it, you will use whatever bulb the projector requires, if you get a projector thats meant for retro like mine, it uses a H1, if you salvage some out of crashed headlamps more than likely its gonna be D2S. a wiring harness is not necessary but highly recommended, let me know if you have any more questions and if you sign up on hidplanet..i'm CBRrider over there

      So give me a little explanation on what is going on. Do i need separate head lights with projector lenses, what bulbs do i need, do i need separate wiring? I am very savvy with electronics, I have a college education in electronics and Lasers just new to the projector lights. So some technical information would be great.

      7X6 BLK DIAMOND PROJECTOR HEADLIGHT H4 BI-XENON HID KIT - eBay (item 360335308496 end time Jan-13-11 20:01:55 PST)

      What about something like this? Are these cheap and not even worth it?
    10. joeynational
      and your gonna need some basic tooling and supplies (dremel,aluminum tape, drill, hacksaw/jigsaw etc.)

      hope this helps and hope to see you do an HID setup the proper way!
