  • Shrouds

    Hello, I am looking at purchasing these, but can't find info on what shrouds to use. There aren't the normal holes to screw in a 2.5' shroud, any ideas?

    Isn’t that the “optima” biled? Apollo style shrouds for 3” projectors will work but you’ll have to epoxy them on

      The Mini H1 is a 2.5" projector. ̶I̶'̶d̶ ̶i̶m̶a̶g̶i̶n̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶s̶h̶r̶o̶u̶d̶s̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶t̶h̶o̶s̶e̶ ̶w̶o̶u̶l̶d̶ ̶w̶o̶r̶k̶.

I tried a Mini Gatling (for Mini H1) and it wouldn't slide on,may work if you cut out the mounting pegs etc inside it but I didn't want to chop up the shroud.
      Thanks for the info!

        Will I need to epoxy? Or do they clip?

          I'm not sure, I remember reading about those on here, but that was a while ago. What was the general consensus on them? for ~$150 I wouldn't mind messing around with them, and if anything I have a friend with a motorcycle who could use some better headlights.

            It's just pushed on to the projector in the photo, needs to be glued on.
