DIY OEM HID projector Retro-fit in 92-95 civic TYC headlights

Alright here's a little tutorial for all that wants to retro-fit, enjoy!
Pre-heat the oven at 350 and turned it off and put the lights in the oven for about 10 mins. These TYC housing seems to use a differnt kind of glue unlike the OEM ones so they were a Bi*** to pry apart. Took about 1 hour per headlight grr.

The TYC projector on the right and the E46 on the left.
I also reused the bezel from the tyc and jb welded it to the e46. Perfect fit.

I then cut the stock bowl thinking i can JBweld it to the E46 but it doesn't seem like it would work.

Here's a transparent view of what i'm talking about.

Soo i decided i'd do the JnC bracket method but added somthing differnt behind the L bracket so i would be able to adjust the pitch when it's bolted on. With this method i would be able to have movement when moving up and down.


And i took a balljoint piece from the TYC and mounted it on the E46 so it would be able to pitch correctly.


Next up measure where the holes are supose to be then drill some holes



Lines up pretty good


Got my D2S connector and spiced it in


Now for the before and after shots.
Before, H1 plug and play

After E46 singles

seem like it would work.
What is this? Is it a projector that you just get anywhere? Why didn't you just use the one that was in the light? Did it not work for the HID's? Sorry just thinking about doing something like this too my '94 Coupe and just trying too figure out everything so I do it right?
Thanx for any info on it!!!

generally the projectors that come in the aftermarket headlight housings suck hence why a re-retrofit with a better projector, for more light throw, better cutoff, clearer lightout etc. is done.
btw buddy I encourage you to do it to your car but dont use the stock flutted lens as its defeats the purpose of a retrofit, make sure the headlight lens is clear, and then work from their choosing your projector GL
