Pseudo projector headlights
« on: August 11, 2010, 09:09:23 PM »
I bought these headligh assemblies 2 or 3 years ago, seemed like a decent idea. The 2 died before I installed them. Mike put them in his car today. let's see what he says about them.

Sorry Bill, but they are the worst headlights I've ever used.

Usually my little driving lights provide secondary lighting, but tonight they were by-far the primary lightening LOL

They look similar to these:

Thanks for testing these lights. Sorry they didn't work out. Wasted time and money. Now we know to avoid this type of light.

Take a look at this Bill, this is the painted tip I am talking about:



Unless the lens is designed to direct a lot of light into the back of that projector lamp, it's more or less a blockade for the light.
