Default projector retrofit

Just picked up a set of AP2 projectors for cheap. I'm looking to do a retrofit in my civic headlights.. anyone done this or know someone who has? Any help is appreciated!

We do them. what balast are you planning on using with them? i assume all AP2? ive never used the AP2, as i pretty much use TSX or FSR's, are yours bi xenon? if so youll have to wire that up as well, or not if you dont want to use them

We usually use TSX projectors, but the AP's are nice as well. I can tell you this, its all about alignment. Keep in mind the temps youll be producing are not what the original housing was meant to handle, not that it wont, just keep that in mind while trying to mount them. Theres several ways to do a retro. we typically over engineer it ( as thats what the daily gig is lol).

we typically do a retro every 2-4 months.. its been declining for a while now.. but the quality of of good projector, such as the tsx, fsr, or ap2 is wayy better then the crap ebay sells in their premade headlights.

Im currently building a set of 2nd gen eclipse ones, and a set for me this month, both using TSX's

We can also get the 35 and 55w ds2 bulbs and balasts (if ur interested), id also recommend a harness.. that way all the relays are pre wired. makes install alot easier and cleaner.
