The scenery shown in your Bay of Fundy photos is spectacular, that must have been a memorable trip.
A few questions for you:
1. Did you install your ExtremeAire Magnum compressor yet? If so, care to share some photos of the setup? That is one beast of a compressor, 1.5HP & 80+ amps.
2. What was the major impediment to finishing up the Koito projector headlights? You obviously have no reluctance to tackle complex upgrades, so just curious if there was a specific issue that brought things to a halt. I like the idea of using LED projectors transplanted from another Toyota model, rather than aftermarket units, and don't want to deal with the other issues unique to xenon systems.
(And, were you able to buy just the LED headlight modules, rather than complete Prius headlight housing assemblies? Standard Prius '16 and later, not Prius C?)
The trip was amazing, we are heading back again this summer for sure.
I am just getting back to finishing the compressor install this week, I keep changing my mind from running tankless or not. It'll really just be for filling tires (and quickly at that
), I have cordless impact tools I carry with me on trips.
If you look at the pics of the Koito projector, in order to center the lens inside the round headlight housing, I would have to basically chop off the entire lower half of the bucket and housing to fit the fan and electronics. Then form an entire new piece out of ABS and mold it to the housing, in order to keep that entire unit inside the headlight assembly and out of the elements. Surely do-able, and I believe there is plenty of space to pull it off on the drivers side even with the battery I have, but it wasn't as much of a priority as everything else I still have to get done.
I still have my original headlights, and still have the Koitos, so someday I may dive back in. The projectors are from the 2016+ Prius' and can be purchased right from Lightwerks or RetroFitSource for around $300.
