No I have not changed the Lenses for "that" colorful cut off. If you are aware, E55 Projectors are 3" in size.

Here is how the truck looks now:

Here is how the truck looks now:
Most massive looking Safari I have ever seen. The thick grill and the big projectors add up more muscles to the car. all the way.

PS : that thing hanging near the left side front wheel feels weird.

@Godfather - Any reason why you went for the LED park lights instead of the angel eyes (CCFL ring)? I think the CCFL ring comes on the Bezel of the projector itself, and should have been easier for fitting / connections?

Thank you friends. I am feeling great to read your comments!

@DSC, Yes bro. You are from Patiala? Where in Patiala?

@Phoenix, actually, initially I did not want to had a "wanna be" look by installing Angel Lights. These look good on Beemers IMHO. But I ended up grinding up the whole centre of reflector and bezel covered the Parking bulb hole. So thought of having the LED strip installed in inverse-C shape but the strip was not that flexible. So ended up installing it in U-Shape.

Sorry mods a bit OT - Yes brother from Patiala only . Live in New Officers Col. .
Anyway,
What rims are you 'ridin' on ? Do some 3/4 shoots of the monster . There are some nice places in and on the outskirts of Patiala to do the photoshoots ex-Dakaala .
Any other mods planned ?

Nice DIY mate! How easy/tough was it to align the beams? Can they be adjusted with a screw at the back and does the lamp leveler still function?

Cheers!

@DSC, I M from Dashmesh Nagar. No other mods planned as of now.

@James, It was'nt that difficult. All you have to do is make sure that you align projector straight in-front. Take reference from the reflector lines. Rest can be taken care by adjusting from the aiming screws. Yes the screws are working as they should, as well as the aiming motor

Godfather, the Safari looks great with these projectors. Much much better than the chinese aftermarket projector lights most boy racers have installed on the Swifts. Great Job!!

@noidaboy, no actually that was a random empty plot. The surface was'nt levelled. Have a look on the following photo.

@anshuman, thank you bro!

Ignore all the "odd" things, this place remain like this only.

@Godfather - you got me thinking! I was expecting on the upside of 25k for something like this. But after looking at your install, am gonna go DIY. It will have to wait a few months though, am on a ICE rebuild trip midway now

Will get in touch with you if and when I need your help, hope you don't mind!

@aZa - the truck already has a clear lens head lamp, what upgrade is it that you have mentioned? is it something on the projector itself, or something on the headlamp assembly?
