Talking retrofit with flashtech halos

well i finally got enough courage and did a retrofit on the ss. The scariest part for me was baking the headlights. The first one took me about 30 mins bc i was nervous but the second one only took 10 mins . For the halos I ordered just the white halos for my headlights and foglights from flashtech and got the complete morimoto h1 kit from the retrofit source. I painted the inside of both the headlights and foglights flat black. The morimoto did need alot of aligning and it was hard putting the halos on because the projectors would not sit in the middle of the halos. But its not really noticeable until you really look at it. James from flashtech answered all my questions i had and i would give him an A++ on customer service. The total cost for this project was about 450 including the halos, projector kit, and all other pieces i needed. Now for this weekend I have to do the afterburners

Actually not that hard. Just make sure you don't rush things and everything will go as planned

If flashtech made colorshift halos, I'd have bought them in a heartbeat for that price!

They sell rgb halos for like 200$. I know with those halos you can create whatever color your heart desire. I ended up with just going with white halos so I don't run with legal problems.

They have them? :o
If you can get a link, that'd be helpful. I can't find them on their website

Man thats awesome, I think you just sold me on that HID kit. I ordered the RGB Halos and Fogs from them and I've actually sent my lights off to be installed. What foglight kit did you use?

all halos are from flashtech. Are you gonna attempt to do your foglights? those were super easy. Took me longer waiting for the paint to dry then to actually install the halos lol.

Nah, I'm just wondering if you had fogs before or did you buy a kit for adding foglights. I bought a kit but I feel like they are the wrong size.

how big are the foglight halos compared to the foglights? the halos need to be able to sit in the foglight housin for them to work, so they have to be a smaller diameter than the fogs

Nice looking project...can you post some pictures that show how the lights look off and during the day? Curious how the the black looks? Are the halos wired to be your DRL's?
