That looks a lot better than the first ones.
The gatling gun shroud suits it quite well.
Do you have any front on pics?

Hey,

Did you use the Mini H1 or Mini D2S or did you go for the FX-R? And how long did it take for the parts to get here from overseas? I'm looking at doing this myself at the moment in an AU2.

Thanks

Went for the FXR ,heaps better output than the mini H1 or D2s .If you are going to spend the money i would pay a little more and get the Fxr . I got the PNP upgrade kit but the FXR is a tight fit

The FX-R usually requires cutting, did you need to cut anything? I was considering the Mini H1 purely because it should be a lot simpler to "bolt up". I haven't opened headlights before, so I'm trying to get an idea from you first.

Thanks again

The mini H1 is a lot easier projector to install . but dont think you just put it in screw itup and your finished.The engineers at ford have stuffed us again , if you take out your H4 globe you will notice that the top pin on your globe is not straight up. you need to grind all 3 pin fittings to get them square or your cut off will be at an angle

AU's have H4 in the main beam and H7 in the high beam.
Ford have used this combination for ages, with the exception of the EF andEL that used H1 low beam and H3 high beam in the Falcon and H4/H3 in the Fairmont.

Actually if you look close at my first pic my high beams are H1
