Seattle’s Custom Automotive Lighting Builders

what is a retrofit headlight

“Power is nothing without control. Retrofitting is the process of installing a xenon or bi-xenon projector into a reflector based halogen headlight. It is the best HID headlight upgrade possible since the projector will control the light into a properly dispersed, non-glaring beam pattern.” – The Retrofit Source

We guarantee that retrofitting in HID or LED projectors into your vehicle can be the best upgrade to your night time driving experience. Even most of the best-equipped vehicles fall short to the highest quality HID projector kits we carry and install. Superior width, brightness and cutoff ensures you can see further down road, further to the sides and, most importantly, not glare other motorists,

All custom retrofits begin with the lights being opened by heating within an oven to soften the OEM sealant between lens and housing. After the lenses are removed, all components are removed and disassembled for the next steps; either Paint, or fitting and trimming. Once all is fitted, trimmed and painted, we carefully reassemble and reseal the lights. 

Sounds pretty straightforward, yeah?

What is not stated is the tedious and meticulous process of making it all come together securely while still looking stunning. When adding an accessory to a light that was not designed to fit, things can get a little… tight. That does not matter, however, as our team has successfully retrofitted hundreds of lights across all makes and models.

Every build that passes through us leaves with the pride of being the best that it can be, no matter what is done to the light. From a simple open and paint up to a “hex” retrofit (6 projectors), we carefully and professionally dissect and improve your vehicle’s forward lighting system and ensure you are happy with your end product.[external_footer]
