Project Roadster; HID Install

As winter draws in and it gets darker earlier, I wanted to do something about the OEM candles Mazda saw fit to spec-out the front of the roadster with. A last minute bid later and a shiny HID conversion kit was on its way to my door.

First job was to lay everything out and see what I had. I had to change one of the connectors and make up some looms to connect the Mazda headlamp connector to the kit loom.

The next problem was the new bulbs did not fit into my H4 headlamps. I found an old set of H4 bulbs, removed the glass bulb and used the base plates as adaptors.

I fixed the ballasts under the headlamps and ran the wiring loom making sure I had enough slack to pop the lights.

Next job was to fire it up. Well, one for comparison:

They look loads better with my LED sides. Drivers side installed and ready to go:

Not the most comprehensive write-up, but you get the idea! Now it’s time for some more late night touge action!

JCCS, Irvine, California

I’m not even going to attempt to cover this awesome event for two reasons: It’s all over the net and mainly, because I wasn’t there!

What I am going to do, is point you in the direction of JNC who have got an awesome report up and some killer pics! Check it out HERE

This KP60 blew me away! If it were mine, it would be a lower and running stretched rubber but judging by the wide AO32s it looks like the owner uses this as a serious grip  machine.                                                                                              

It’s packing serious powers too in the form of a 20v lump
