Yep, oven does it. Heats up the epoxy/glue then take it apart.

Somebody has to do it, so it might as well be me.

Projector retrofit.

It's the only reason I can think of.

It corners better than higher temps.

Crossed my mind too, but he has to replace the OEM fluted lens, otherwise it's pointless.

Sad, but true.

I recently replaced my 55w HID with an LED, so far so good.

I was going to put angel eyes hide on my motorcycle but I don't know if it's possible without modifying the wires which I don't want to.

To my knowledge, it's not possible without adding or modifying wires. Might be wrong though, not up to date with all the HID kits because most of them suck and are illegal.

The ones that come with projectors are the only legal kits.

Depends on which kit you have/get.

My HID bulb was from DDM TUNING, it was a H4 hi/lo 55w/5k set up. It was a simple matter of plug and play install.

As far as the halo eyes goes, I have them on my Blazer, it was in easy enough install, just wired them to the running lights.

As far as the Ninjette goes, I'd wire them to the dash lights, or tail light. When I added the switchback LEDs, I ran the the running lights off the dash lights, no issues whatsoever.

Mad Hornet's flushmount front turn signals /AsianCycle flush-mounts clones

Another thing you'll have to address is replacing the OEM fluted lens, someone here tried it, I believe they used a vacuum forming to make a clear lens.
