Picked up an xbox 360 power supply that I am going to mod into a pseudo ballast to power the lights. Will have some photos for you guys of an expected output and cut off line etc; once I get it all rewired.

Got the jig in yesterday and started working on requiring the Xbox power brick to power the headlights. Hope to have some photos of output, etc tonight. I have a power outlet on the bed of the truck so I’m going to try and give some real world output results.

Played around with the 12v source and got them fired up. That cutoff line looks nice. This was approximately 30 seconds warm up.the jig didn’t come with the right washers for what I needed so I’ll have to get some from the store.
The laser and universal square I need still hasn’t shipped from Amazon when I placed the order last week so I a little upset about that, but hopefully soon.

pay no mind to the first one looking wonky. It wasn’t screwed into the projector just being held in place by my hand testing my wiring.

The cut off on the MH1 8.0s is a lot more crisp than the 7.0s were. This 7.0s had more of a slope, and not so much of a flat line.

Amazon advised Wednesday is expedited day for the last of the parts I need to get this project going and Tuesday for the last and hopefully final replacement set and we can finally get this into high gear.

The jig is not compatible with the DEPO headlights. The lines in the reftector bowl are not actually straight and do not provide a good reference.
The projectors can be installed using the threaded shaft method, and the concept will still be the same, where I use lasers and a level surface to determine cutoff alignment.
Both ways are just as good, but it is unfortunate that I waited so long on the jig to find out it did not suit the purpose I needed it for.
Last set of headlamps showed up yesterday and the other bits I needs showed up just a few minutes ago, so this weekend will be headlight retrofitting mania!
CAAAANNNNMN YOU DIIIIIG IIIITTTTT?!! (Those who know...know)
