Interesting....I GOT SOME!!!!

Okay....I know Projector HIDs have been a popular thing on this site....But I had to tell you guys about a website I found.....IZNTRBL.com.......I talked to him today and he agreed to manufacture a set of Projectors for me.....with working high and low beams from one projector (with a dummy projector in my high beams slot)......crome bezel and a crystal clear lense......the only thing is price.....If you advertise his company on your car and or sig. he'll bump off $200.....making the total $680 (add angel eyes for $100)......I'm sending off my set with my first payment friday....I can't wait......PORKCHOP here I come!!!....lol

P.S. he also said he can make clear corners to match the clear headlights for $100

too much work but i dont get how you will have high/low beam in each projector seeing how you already have a seperate high beam towards the inner headlights. so you are gonna have 2 sets of high beams? why?

The projector is going in the dim side and a smaller dummy projector on the high beams side.....the projector being used has a door that blocks light and when I activate the highs it moves....thats how he explained it to me....he is also going to get me a plug and play wiring kit....I'm deleting my brights.....

ic so he is using bi-xenon projectors and putting "dummy" projectors in place of the center highs?

what do you mean by dummy? fake? or some small projectors with regular parking lamp bulbs in them or what?

Sound cool! Pricey but pretty cool! You think maybe if you get a GP he could lower the price some more?

He said nogo on the GP.....he's lowering the price $200 already if you advertise on your car and or sig.......right now he's getting little in profit due to materials.....either way it's a great setup and will be well worth the money...I can't wait

Of course tell him you'll advertise....once you get your sh1t put on, I wouldn't even worry about stickering up your ride with "RICER" stickers on it....or is he actually going to check to make sure you have his logo on or what?

Looks pretty good in my opinion. Looks alot better than the stock foggy crap. Nice job. Are you thinking about making these and selling them? I think alot of people would want these.

they look great but just a thought you should make the 89-95 corner lens clear as well seeing how the 96+ clear corner doesnt go too well with the lines of your clear headlight.

another thing to consider is that he is doing this for projector retrofitting purposes and that just replacing the lens with a clear one will not dispurse the light output evenly and will cause very high glare. there is a reason why the reflective lens is there. it would be brighter but with glare and a weird bad beam pattern to the ground.

so get some corners to match, put some projectors in there and welcome to the club

lexan also comes in a smoked version..not as dark as the gts covers, but like a20% tint on your windows... looks sweet
