I'm just about ready to begin installing the second phase of exterior mods for my car. This thread will serve as my main source of advise from the good folks here and also a location to upload pics at various stages. I'm hoping to finish up by working a few hours on Saturday and sunday this week. I'll be installing a Cervinis 1187 hood, hood locks, hood struts, c-series front bumper, Smoked corner lenses, smoked side markers, Takeoff GT Headlight switch, Raxiom fog light wiring harness, Raxiom 2010 style smoked tail lights and Raxiom Smoked projector headlamps. I am also installing DDM Slim Ballast HID kits for low, high and fog lights. I should have all of my parts in by Thursday afternoon, but I won't start my install until Saturday afternoon.
So far the only thing I've done is mod the Raxiom headlamps and installed the 35 Watt bulbs from DDM Tuning.
Drilled holes for passing the DDM HID Bulb wiring
I placed sealant on the inside of the housing to make sure nothing got in via the newly drilled holes
Headlamp reassembled and wiring pulled through (The caulk dries clear)
At least now all I have to do is secure the ballasts inside the vehicle and install the lights normally. This will hopefully speed up my install time. I also wanted to put this out there for anyone else that wants to install HIDs into this housing since I couldn't find any pics or anything else online. I will post more pics as I complete more of the install/any prep work.
Also, I really want to buy & install the side exhaust kit from Cervinis this coming spring to complete the look. I planned on doing that around april when I get the GT500 rear bumper I have painted and installed. I wanted some feedback from people that have the side exhaust kit installed. How bad is it for lowered cars? I have Koni Yellows and Vogtland lowering springs so I'm not at stock height. If those side skirts are so problematic are there any others that you guys can recommend that will go with the C-Series front / GT500 rear? Thanks!
