  • "They won't fit" - A.K.A. the Miata quad project.

    The most dangerous thing to say to someone like myself is "it can't be done". So when two people at TRS and three retro companies told me that "there is no way a LS460 halogen projector will fit", "there is not enough room for two projectors", and "you can't put in two because it was only designed for one bulb" I took it as a cop-out and a challenge.

    The car: 2000 Mazda Miata
    The plan: HID low beam, LS460 'pencil-beam' highs.
    The dilemmas:
    1) I've only done one 'drop-in' retro to date.
    2) Need to find someone willing to make custom shrouds.
    3) Can't decide which projector to use as a low beam. Suggestions? Doesn't need to be dedicated low beam, but light concentration at the cut off is crucial due to how low the car is.

    They currently have some fleabay bi-xenon PnP kit that has surprisingly little glare, but still have a blurry halogen cutoff. This is going to be a long WIP, but I will update as often as work on them. Now some pics for your pleasure.

        After going through many, many output shot threads I believe I have settled on an RX-AFS with curved shield. They have a nice wide beam and with dropping the shield I can get a pleasant hot spot where I'd like to see it. I bought a set of B-stock MD2S and MH1 6.0 to practice tuning and feel that it's something I am capable of, now.
