  • FXR 3.0 in S197 Mustang

    had these B-stock FXR 3.0 3" units, which were intended for a 2nd retro on my jeep.......

    well, i inherited my fathers 06 Mustang - the first thing it needs of course, is a retro!

    staying simple and clean, no halos or anything like that.

    so i bought a set of housings on ebay for about 80 bucks, some odds and ends from the TRS closeout section mostly - and today got started!

    popped these bad boys open


    was hoping it could sit back far enough to make the shroud flush, but no such luck :/


    this is as far as i dared go today - will revisit it tomorrow, maybe i can get it further into the reflector....

    couple more of the fitment



    dropped in place for a pic, looks better than i thought it would! now to get the other side cut up, mounted, and check rotation/horizontal alignment!

    It's a good start. Are you keeping the reflector and shroud chrome?

      yeah - i want it to look as OEM-ish as possible. not a fan of colors, lights, etc.

        Looks like I had room to sink them a bit more, hopefully my measurements were right!uploadfromtaptalk1426722461882.jpg

            this looks clean. I love OEM-ish retros.

                      I think you should paint the chrome reflector bowl a nice satin/semi-gloss black. Doing that hides the fact that the car obviously didn't come with projectors from the factory since the reflector optics are more hidden. Leave the shroud chrome of course.

                      Looks good so far. Can't go wrong with Iris as the shroud of choice. Very nice that you didn't need to do any cutting and it's perfectly intact.

                          fin!


                          a few pics of checking alignment, did some minor adjustments (minor meaning, at first the cutoff hit the ground about 7 feet in front of the car......) then tightened everything down, put some steelstik in place to ensure everythign held. ended up having to trim one of the shrouds a little bit, and the other one a little more.....oh well.


                          that was one long sentence.....anyway - pictures!























                          i will get some daytime shots tomorrow, probably after i cleanly install the harness.....

                            Looks good! Needs more epoxy though. Just in case of the Apocolypse.
