  • The Official "Post a Picture of Your Retrofit" Thread!

    I thought this would be a good time to post ONE pic of your completed retro in the daytime to give others a way to see what we've done to get that nice oem look with shrouds and bezels. Also provide as much info as you can, everyone can use my post as an example or add more details. I think it would be a good reference instead of people starting threads all the time asking how to make a retro look good. Any pic will work, do not short sell yourself. Chances are what you might hate others will love.

            CAR: 2000 Toyota Tundra
            HEADLAMPS: OEM Toyota.
            PROJECTORS: Q45
            SHROUDS: none,the projectors are pretty much self-enclosed/shrouded
            BEZELS: none,other than the chrome Infiniti lense holder piece.

            BTW the fogging on the bottom near the corner light was sort of my fault. I was washing the truck @ work,whoever used the hose last had the hot water valve on which instantly caused the condensation. I never had condensation issues with these lights other than this one time ](*,)
