Default Re: The Headlight Thread

I once looked into modifying car projectors and stumbled upon three problems. The first one was I need e-approved lights, and car lights are approved as a package so the e-marking is in the outer glass not on the projector itself. The second issue was projectors housed inside a bigger light fixture, once removed, are not even remotely weatherprood by themselves so you'd have to fabricate some sort of a housing to fit them into (yan?) The third one is a (xenon) projector that has both dipped and main beam usually has either a mechanism that moves the bulb forward, or a flippable "shroud" to cover part of the beam when low beams are selected. This makes the whole projector body about as long as a single use anti-tank bazooka so they're not exactly easy to fit onto the front of a motorbike.
