  • Fusion Fog Projectors - Round 2

    So using the newer version of the Fusion Fog Projectors, I modded them to take D2S bulbs. No output pics yet tough, but here is how I have the D2S bulb holder attached.





    2/25/11 Update:
    All I need to do is seal the lens on. I filled the open area with bowling ball plug (since I work in a Pro Shop).





    Just took some output pics. There is one little, itty-bitty hump, and a little flare on the right side. I may just make this the passenger side.


    So the project is now finished and here are the installed and output pics!

      Yea, it is kinda an eyeball really. It is not perfect, I will admit that. But for what I want, it does the job. I will take pics tonight.

        Not bad, Greg. Here's a suggestion to maybe help make it properly lined up for the next round:

        Take the bowl and temporarily mount it to a flat surface and trace around the bowl. Get a small pipe or something with wet paint or something to mark the flat surface for where the pipe was dead center in the bulb holder. Remove everything, then permanently mount the pipe to the board. Remove original bulb holder, slide the reflector bowl back down within the original marks. Take new bulb holder and slide down the pipe as a guide for dead center. Mount the bulb holder to the bowl. Remove. Win. Should help line things up properly at least. Just need a pipe or something small enough for both bulb holders to slide down but big enough to provide little room to be off center.

          Mike, you totally lost me, haha. It is too lat now anyway. I am content with how it i. The problem is I am shortening the bulb holder and suing a longer bulb.

            Yeah...Probably doesn't help I'm still in class where the professor's over complicating simple accounting...Like I said, this is for the next round if there's a 3.

            Pretty much...Think of one using a pole or something as a guide to replace the old bulb holder with the new bulb holder.

            With the problem...Maybe a spacer between the rear of the bowl and the bulb holder til the spacing is just right? Would take a lot of trial and error with test fitting to fix that.

                Probably lol Can probably brainstorm it when the weather's finally better to work on some stuff.

                And also...Seems like the clear turn signals plan is slowed down again...Almost want to just do start with what we can and maybe reopen down the road for a quick lens swap unless we can find someone local to mold and make a clear lens while the lights are opened up the first time.

                      They are actually totally golden yellow in person, camera gives them a green tint. But I love them!

                        Output looks very promising...
                        I wonder what they will look like with a drop in HID kit....

                            When I get my new pair in, I will take pics with a H11 HID for you. You want 3K or 5K bulbs?

                            That might have been me, I got them from someone here on the forums. Unfortunately from testing them, one of those side tabs broke off.

                              yeah i thought it was you, couldn't remember. I have a pair of 85122 with one tab broken off of each side, it works fine, but if i go over a big bump, the d2s connector will wiggle and the light will turn off. -_-
