    Thanks @BEG Ordered this as well, but went with 5500K bulbs. Didn't see an option for 55w ballasts. Does anyone know if the 35w ballasts will suffice?

    35W will be perfectly fine. 55W paired with the Mini H1 can cause the inner portion of the bowl to burn due to heat

    I thought we discussed this...they will be fine for a long time (5 years). I have only seen a few Mini H1's come back with scorched bowls, and they were 5 years old and much older revisions. The 7.0 bowls are much beefier. It's for warranty purposes only :)

    Here’s the latest update I met with my CAD guy and we redesigned the large bracket to fit both the MLED and the D2S 4.0 I’ve also made some changes to the small bracket... enlarging the mounting holes to give you some rational play and also cut the bracket back so it does not hit the projector.
    I should have all the final designs in hand by tomorrow or Saturday and will send everything out Monday to be cut

    Got my miramoto stuff. Are you creating a list? If so, put me down for a pair for the mini’s thanks. Can’t wait to see better a night.

    I'd love to be on the list or put a deposit on the next batch of brackets.

    Great, thanks Luke! I've got my Morimoto parts today, can't wait to get this started.

    My current set up involves H1 HID in the factory projectors, which isn't ideal with less output and a lot of glare out of the squirrel finder. I would like to get this issue addressed with the full retrofit set up.
