Default 2002 Acura RL w/ LS430 projectors (created by imports_only1 )

Clarification: This is the work and write up originally posted by imports_only1.


I just thought I share my lastest retro with the RL community here. Here are some pics:

















__________________________________________________ ____________________

here is a short and brief DIY on how I mounted the projectors; there are alot of steps that i skipped so if there's any questions, feel free to ask me:

Mounted but not aligned


Noticed the red circles; that's where I used 2 bolts to mount the projector


I marked the top of the reflector as the center and where the projector should be pointed; still not yet aligned


The rear of the projector and its markings to align the projector so it would be level and pointed in the right direction


Test fitting the shroud; not yet trimmed


Spacing the lens and testing it out in the basement


Mounted, aligned, and cleaned


Shroud trimmed to fit reflector perfectly
