Need Expert on Retrofit !!

Hi everyone,

I just brought my Morimoto Retro-Quik system. Its arrived a few days ago.
I only bought the the "project and brackets" options since I got hid kits from else where.

Can anyone tell me if it is every thing I need to do the retrofit?

I have a HID kit with 5000k H11 bulb, Relay wires, and Morimoto Mini H1 with brackets.

I understand that I need H1 bulbs right? If I go ahead and get it, am I good to go? I am very new to lightings and want to make sure I don't screw something up when following the instructions kindly provided by DarrenDriven and civicdrivr.


Thanks ahead of time
Eric

You'll need H1 bulbs. H11 is the factory bulb.

If you don't want to screw up, then just follow the instructions provided by DarrenDriven and civicdrivr.

It seems daunting, but take your time and it will be fine.

Yea, its really a straight forward process, just take your time with it. The longest part for me was taking the front end apart

As @colHolm said, you'll need to get some H1 bulbs.
