i went to walmart and purcahsed some GE superblues (there not really blue like the name says it is) anyways i just finished doing one side of the light. it was around 6pm when i first finished one side and i noticed there wasnt a big difference. you can obviously see one side is a little brighter but not as bright as the one in the DIY article. i'll have some pics tonight when it gets darker.

You have to remember a lot of factors go into what you see with your eyes.

As for the article, you see it through someones camera quality, then your monitor/video card quality on your screen on the website. When you see your own lights in real life there is an obvious difference in clarity. on top of that you have the focus of your own eyes, plus where you were looking at the lights from (angle, inside/outside, daytime/nighttime, etc).

Then outside of all of that, your housing could just be dirty. You never know. There are a few things you could do to make sure you are getting the best light possible for the setup you purchase, but if its even a little better than it was I think it is worth it (depending on how much you forked out for it that is)

man, what the hezzy?! they're freakin yellow. go return them to walmart for a refund and tell them it's false advertising. 9005 silverstars don't look so white either :-/

with no camera flash


with slow flash


with regular flash


does anyone have a 9005 conversion with purple bulbs? i've very interested in doing a purple 9005 conversion and need some pics

ok i fixed the pictures, they are not as yellow when you turn off the flash on the camera, lol. the car is parked on the driveway to its angled up a little thats why you cant see any light on the ground.

korean_teg your right, the best thing to do is the HID, but i dont have that kind of money to spend.

this might sound like a stupid question, but what really is the difference between the 9005 and 9006, and why do people convert them?

9005 are the high beam light bulbs and the 9006 light bulbs. putting the 9005 bulb in the 9006 socket produces more light. so i guess its a cheaper way instead of doing the HID conversion.

:werd: post up some more pics :)

i have silverstars

9006 is for low beam and 9005 is for the high beam. 9005 uses more voltage thus creating more lumens, and the 9005's don't have a cap at the end of the bulb

just took it for a drive and i was amazed. there was a big difference. there is not much of a difference when its early but when its at night you can see further.

i hope the conversion wont damage anything in the long run, lol

NO, 9005 does NOT use more voltage, they use more WATTAGE ( typical 65w vs 55w ). both 9006 and 9006 run off of 12 volts.

also, be careful to judge the light's color and brightness when taken with a camera. besides the sensor's quality, the software processing within the camera itself will automatically adjust the brightness ( shutter speed ), and the white balance ( biggest factor, determines the final color temperature of the picture ). the only way to really know how these will look like is to actually look at them with your own REAL eyes.
