2006 mustang HID retrofit

Retrofitting the headlights and foglights. Since I'm not new to retrofitting everything will be easy to do. Only thing slowing me down is work and school. I'll post update picks as I can.

OEM headlights tend to be a PIA to open due to permaseal, luckily TYC's headlights are so much easier.

RX350 bi-x for the headlights and RX350 low beam for the fog lights. I had FX-R's on my previous vehicle and they had too much foreground lighting for me. Being that mustangs are generally lower to the ground the less foreground the better.

Good on you. I am planning to do this to my car. However im thinking of wiring the fogs up with bi xenons as well. I do a lot of late night mountain driving, and the extra light is a huge help to avoid those pesky bears.

Anyways, cool thread.

along with projectors in the fog lamps I'm thinking about also converting the fog lamps to turn signals also, in addition to the turn signals in the bumper. I'm on the fence with this. Is anybody for or against this?

^^I think that converting the fogs to signal lights wouldn't be that great. The stangs front signals work well...even when your head lights are on. If anything i would benefit from side signals. I would leave the fogs as fog lamps for that extra low aimed light in bad conditions.

I'd still have the fog lamps they would just also work as an extra turn signal also, but I think I'll ditch the idea though

quick update. Hopefully I'll be done with the headlights by next weekend. With spring semester starting Monday, no ETA on when the fog lights will be done. Also will be doing a how-to guide for you guys

Looking good. What shrouds will you be using?

Converting your fog lights to turnsignals could run afoul of your states vehicle code. Also the current draw would probably fry the flasher electronic circuits. A relay circuit to provide the power would have to be built and then make sure it doesn't feed back into the headlight circuit (Blocking diodes?). Not knowing what the foglight circuit looks like now, that could be simple or hard.

Originally to keep it simple I was going to keep the fog lamps and just add an amber LED behind the shroud and aim it at the reflector and just hard wire it into the turn signal, but I ditched the idea all together

Painting them black. I already ran into a problem with the fog lamps, I'm going to have to mount the projector to the reflector from behind to allow the lens to fit back on, then to cover the exposed projector end I'm going to use PVC pipe, the problem with this is I'm not sure if I'll have enough space behind the fog lamps
