almost a year passed since my last post...

so go on with updated:
- falken hs494 winter tyres on ogre green steelies :)
- just bought 4 brand new toyo proxes t1-r..

also went on and i'll scrap the projectors and replace them with this:
IMG_20180402_220628.jpg
they are bi-xenon on H1 so a good retrofitting is required. :)

Replacement will be easy as i saw, just 4 screws, get out the old one, put in the new one.

Interesting that this has a solenoid which moves down a lever and you get high beam. Now thinking about wiring it to the high beam, so when i switch on the high beam projectors, this will also lower the lever and i will have 4 high beam projectos (imagine flashing idiots with this)

going on, i also have to rewire the whole damn headlight due to corroded and broken insulation on cables... i'll keep you updated

I felt sick just seeing those holes. Although mine were pretty bad too.

Fair play to anyone who has the time, patience and skill (or money!) to be able to get this kind of work done! :grin:

Although, I have noticed a problem with your Puma...... the steering wheel is on the wrong side!! :P :-D
