Thanks for the tips. I'd be worried about having the rings line up straight. If you were off even slightly it would look like crap, I would think....The retrofit source has switchback (turn signals and white) or RGB rings and strips if you want something custom, or led concepts has an RGB kit that is decent. I don't know if Depo brand lights are different, but the led concepts kit did not fit very well.
For just the halos you need to take the headlight apart: http://www.titantalk.com/forums/tit...ht-mod-painting-inner-housing-our-lights.html
Then get the rings/strips you want, plan where they're going to go because you have to cut/drill a hole in the shroud for the wires to go through, glue/tie them down, run the wires out the back, put the headlights back together. Most LED's only need 12V+ and ground -, switchbacks will have to tap into the turn signal.
The Retrofit Source Inc has a lot of good information on it.
It's not overly difficult, you just have to be patient and careful with the lenses. I have some haziness and a few scratches on the inside of one of mine. Slightly visible when the headlights are clean and you know what you're looking for.
Thanks for the information and the in-depth write up links. Any particular reason you decided to do all this work yourself instead of just buying new headlights from Spyder or something? :devil:I placed my inside one against the hi beam shroud and if I had gone with led concepts I would have placed the larger one against the back of the shroud using it as the reference to line it up. Here's what I did to mine. That inside halo would need to be 115mm to fit exactly around the shroud and led concepts gave me a 100mm one that fell inside the hole. I think the larger halo would need to be 125 to be exact but you'll get a 130mm ring and just hide the top of it a bit.
I heard the Spyder and other CCFL's weren't that bright as well. I heard the headlights weren't bright either and that an HID kit would be recommended. If my son and I get bored we might do this mod some weekend. It looks nice on your truck.Spyder is ok quality and the CCFL rings aren't that bright. I wanted something unique, and I was originally going to put projectors in but didn't have the money to do it. Messing with my truck is one of my favorite hobbies as well, so I didn't see it as work.
