  1. I will most definitely take pictures and post. I already have the ballasts and both projectors. I should be getting the bulbs today. So maybe I will get to work on this over the weekend.
  2. I find this funny because when I had a Jeep Cherokee I bolted on fogs and driving lights...
  3. Fifty150 - I am looking to do something that improves lighting but looks close to stock. GBL - I have already adjusted the headlights as much as I am willing, the lights just don't seem very powerful. Another option I just found was this... https://store.ijdmtoy.com/Mini-HID-Bi-Xenon-Retrofit-Projector-Fog-Lamps-p/70-127.htm or a slightly cheaper version: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HID-Bi-Xenon-Retrofit-Projector-Lens-Replacement-Fog-Lamps-for-Subaru-CRV-Focus-/322377358892?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368 Both of those interest me because of the bi-xenon capability, but the biggest reason I originally chose the fusion projectors was because of the reviews on how crisp and clear the cut-off is. Plus, i already got the parts. So, I need to decide before I start any cutting. Or, at least I have a fall back if I completely screw up the conversion.
  4. I am disappointed with the headlights and fog lights in the Ford Transit Connect. They don't really provide much down the road lighting. I am a little frightened by the idea of retrofitting the headlights (too much money to replace if I screw it up). So, I thought I would try retrofitting the fog lights with projectors. This should throw some more light down the road without the need for opening up the headlight assemblies. I put this into the "replacing fog lights with driving lights" category. After researching similar retrofits, I decided to utilize projector fog lights using in the Ford Fusion, Flex, Lincoln MKZ, etc. around the 2009-2012 time frame. These seem to be very popular and get good reviews from most people, i.e. good lighting, good cut-off, etc. I have ordered some used projectors and they should be arriving next week. I will report back on how this goes once all the parts are in. In the meanwhile, here are a few links to other retrofits that led me down this path: http://www.focusst.org/forum/focus-st-appearance/31034-diy-how-ford-fusion-projection-fog-light-retrofit.html http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/154-audio-electronics-lighting/219633-projector-fog-lights%3B-ford-fusion-retrofit.html https://forum.miata.net/vb/showthread.php?t=543994 https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/ford-fusion-fog-light-retrofit-diy.407833/ Obviously the first link is the most similar to the Transit, but I am hoping to find a way to possibly keep the adjustment capability.
