    Galante's 8g Build

    Before I start I would like to thank Trig for supplying my JDM parts (more to come) and Raz_76 for answering a lot of my preliminary questions before I decided to go on this conversion and advices on how things should be done and most specially TGC Tutorials.

    Last Saturday was when I started to dismantle my car's front... And trimmed the radiator support and stuff to make the jdm head fit (not perfect yet). Some pics below








    However, after fitting the head on the passenger side. I have some issues with the AC lines



    I will try to push the A/C line carefully in to make way for the H7 bulb and socket.

    I will also try to push the left head further in to reduced the gap w/ the grille.

    Good progress. I just pushed my A/C lines back a little, and it fit fine.

    If you post stupid and incorrect information, you will get red nuggets.

    if u line it up correctly u should be able to get 5 of them to clip, depending on the year of ur car will depend if the 6th (bottom middle) clip will clip in, if not, just cut it off

    Umm off the top of my head, I think 4 or 5. All of them were clipped into the headlights.

    I'm only able to use 2 clips and those are the middle ones since I cut the head's grille mounting tabs thin so I can push it further in and I used a longer bolt going to the radiator hole to secure it.

    won't work. just buy new H7 HID capsules (bulbs) that have the same connectors as your (old ballasts) and use your old ballasts.
