I got a set of HID's

I got a complete set of ballast, igniters and bulbs off a 2006 Cadillac STS. I can get sockets & connectors and convert schmatics so thats no problem. If they don't work I will throw them out no biggie.

Will they work in a 94/95 headlamp? I'm willing to take lens apart, clean, modify, ect.

My one question is will the ripply lens affect the projection of the bulb? I already know I have to tint the mirror finish on the inside of the lamp.

I also did a little reading on porkchops thread so I do have a little idea, but he has 96/97 headlamps. So I'm just wondering.

Thanks.

Did you get projectors? or just the bulbs/ballasts/etc.

if so measure twice, cut once. Hope your doing this on a spare set.

Good luck.

Best advice you could ask for :-)
