Just some pictures for everyone's consideration. These cars have crummy stock headlights, and I haven't seen anybody do a custom job on one yet. The inside area of the headlight, around the HID projector, was given a "black chrome" finish. Since it seemed like a nice natural separation, the ring around the central housing was left with its stock chrome finish. The housing was nice and cooperative about being opened up, then re-sealed with a short 175 F session in the oven.
-I think the later model 2002-2003 lights were prettier on this model of Solara, and the stock lighting was probably quite a bit better with a 2 bulb vs single bulb set up. I think this should fix the lame lighting, and dress up the appearance quite a bit.:smile:
Nice that you're able to re-purpose a hid projector kit bought 6 years ago. The dual lamp headlights are quite a bit nicer the Depo ones are sharp and you can put two projectors in them. That's a $500+ project though.
One thing you could do is put a switchback white/amber LED strip in the bottom of the unit.
