  • Nissan Note + Koito BiLED + DRL + Cornering light (Full LED)

    I decided to make myself new headlights.

    1. Based on RHD headlights Ichikoh with thermal sealant (LHD Valeo headlight have polyurethane sealant and less thickness body, but glass is better)
    2. Koito BiLED shield mod
    3. DRL Valeo from Peugeot 508
    4. Turn signal Osram 7905YE-02B
    5. LED Cornering light - bike light from AliExpress



    Koito


    DRL


    Turn, small modded


    Lamp for cornering light


    Go go go...

    PART 1 - housing of headlights.

    RHD headlights have other sockets, i decided to glue in the headlight connectors of european cars so that the headlights were plug-n-play setup.

    socket of parking light


    socket of turn signal


    H4 - main socket low/high beams


    European electric motor do not install on the Ichikoh headlight. I made two adapters.


    I'm on Poxipol glued LED bulb Osram in hole of parking w5w bulb


    Check how it works




    I'm use resistor for normal blinking with LED bulbs, place on DRL driver

      PART 2 - DRL/Parking module.

      use arctic silver thermal glue to place two radiators on backplate. with radiators temp keeps normal - after hour works 42C, without radiators - above 60C






      two modules of different years of production


      little mod housing-radiators of driver


      housing of headlights need small change - i heated the area and pushed it


      positioning DRL relative to other parts of the headlamp housing. i place the module in place of the turn signal.




      reflector of turn signal and reflector of DRL have one type plactic - PA66, they are easily alloy




      driver place on bottom headlights


      checking compatibility with mask. drl in parking mode, in DRL very vary bright and the photo cannot be taken

        PART 3 - Koito BiLED mod.

        Electric
        my car have H4 bulb, to normal work of low/high beams i use diode and place he on radiator koito







        Shield mod

        Koito have many shields. I have this - default shield CH/EU version.


        i don't like shading and high height of cutoff line, decided to just cut a little bit











        I know that with such a modification, the high beam will go a bit into the oncoming lane, it's not important for me

        Aiming

        everything is simple here, i mod RHD headlights










        i definitely put it on the car and check the light

            PART 4 - Front Cornering Light





            electric consumption - 13W


            radiator is overheating: after 5 min works - 73C, therefore for a long time you can not turn on


            for activate i'm using controllers, which the on the cornering light when on the turn signal












            to housing of headlights 10mm










            light have cut-off line, but not the best solution for cornering - small angle

              PART 5 - Projector Shrouds

              I do not like how it looks any universal shrouds in reflector. On nissan note reflector located inside a deep hole of mask headlights, and looks like a bug-eyed car.

              green line - cut to fit the standard shroud

              i get shroud and pantyhose 300 den






              little exopy magic


              little manual labor




              as the mask covers all ventilation, i'm make vent hole on top of reflector




              mask after chemical metallization


              i was too lazy to bring out the surface and got this result


              fitting in the headlight

                PART 6 - Electrical wiring



                Algorithm:
                1. Koito LED connected with H4 socket.
                2. High beam blinking:
                day: DRL to parking mode + high beam koito
                night: park lights to high brightness (DRL) + high beam koito
                3. Cornering light only with low beam
                4. Full LED headlights with plug-n-play wiring. Need only one additional socket for DRL mode.

                  Crazy good work. This retrofit is potentially the best one I ve seen in years. Retrofit of the year for sure.

                    PART 7 - Appearance of headlights

                    assembly headlights


                    before polish and PVC film sticking


                    polish


                    finally, even in dark places there are no dark circles around the projectors, as in my first retro




                    DRL works, it seems that the lights are excessively bright, but this is a OEM solution and it meets the standards




                    PART 8 - Cornering light

                    the light turned out at the same level, but on right side cut-off line have step, and low beam a little higher


                    left side


                    I missed the angle of rotation of the lamp and there is a shading between the dipped and cornering lights, but this is my first experience.

                      Wow this is really cool! I love how you put it all together like that, especially the cornering lights. Really well done!
