Depo Headlights FTW!!

Just got my pair of Depo headlights in today and installed them right after work! I love them, though I forgot to aim them so they are pointing at the ground. Install was longer than I thought I'd be, but I had to take out a ton more screws to get the bumper off because of the front lip. I wanted to ask anyone if there is a DIY write up on installing Depo headlights. I took a ton of pics and can create a write up if no-one else has done one. I looked in the DIY section, nothing there and there is also a "DIY Projector Headlights" in the 5th gen resource guild...but unfortunately it goes to a 4th gen install thread. Here are a few pics, they're not very good cause by the time I was done it was pitch black...

Re: Depo Headlights FTW!!

is that what you used for your retrofits? Or did you use the OEM headlights?

Is it in the DIY section under exterior? I can't seem to figure out how to see all the threads in that section. I go to Tech-Talk > DIY Do-It-Yourself then click on one of the sub catigories (for example exterior) it warps me to Styling and Sound > Exterior. So I'm not sure how to view all the DIY's but I'm sure it's there LUDEZILLA if you can get there, sorry man.

No djp I didn't have black housing headlights before. I just had the stock ones with the eyelids which I'm not planning on putting back on. Just keepin the Depo lights clean.

Yeah I just aimed them today (forgot to do that yesterday and they were basically pointing at the ground) and aiming them was the exact same as the OEM ones, I can also see a lot more cause my old lights were really scratched up and pretty much no light could get through.

yeah man, it was the 2nd best $220 I've spent, coming second to my PSPEC shifter I correct myself, my girlfriend was the one that bought my Depo's but still... very nice.

Thanks for the comments from everyone else and here are some more pics I took today:

Re: Depo Headlights FTW!!

Good choice on not putting the eyelids back on, looks REALLY clean, and all your lighting shares a similar color... looks great man.

I thought the same thing, I think I put the eyelids on cause I wanted to do something to the headlights but now that problem has been solved. On the same day I got the headlights I also got my new white LED parking light and the SilverStar bulbs are white so they do all match for the most part. I think the only time your lights shouldn't match is when you have yellow fogs.
