You mean the halogen bulbs?Nice! I did not manage to remove the front bumper or the headlights. Curious to see how it looks after you are done.
I replaced the halo bulbs with in Morimoto HIDs 4 years ago. They still work great.
The headlight assembly seemed to be sealed: how did you crack it open without breaking?

I just used the ones from my car. You just need to take it slow and easy. I plan on offering my services to forum members.If the Volt's headlamps weren't so expensive I would consider doing this.
I just don't to want to cough up the several hundred dollars in replacement headlamp cost in case I were to make a mistake!
I have factory volt projectors in my garage. My experience has taught me that 55W is a marginal increase in light output but a big risk of burning the chrome inside a projector. Considering the factory halogen bulb can melt the chrome inside the cheap factory projector 55W isn’t worth the risk or expense for not much gain.It would be interesting to see how the light patterns (Hi and Lo) and brightness differs from just putting 35 watt or 50 watt HID's in the stock projectors.
We'd almost need side by side comparisons against the same white wall.
It would be nice to get all scientific and use a Light Meter: https://www.grainger.com/product/21...6Nc-FH2BnkSOkLeM6GzUnEgRGSAO4tgwaAoI5EALw_wcB
Might not be much.
I was really impressed with my 35 watt HID upgrade on my Volt. For not much money at all.
55W HIDs. I have no HIDs that fit the stock projectors anymore. And I don’t keep any 55W ballasts around anymore.Agreed.
But are you talking about 55 Watt HID's or incandescents?
I felt that the 35 Watt HID's I installed were a BIG improvement!
The Hi/Lo patterns were not changed from stock, only light output.
I can't prove this with pictures. Plus I no longer own a Volt.
But you sir, can prove this with comparative pictures !
I don’t own a volt anymore. I have the same projectors in my FJC though.I'm talking about your new git-up versus a stock set with the same wattage HID. Or just 35 watt HID's in the stock projectors.
And you could reinstall the stock incandescent bulbs for one of the pictures!
Testing and Displaying Results !!
Not really. Lmao. I have volt projectors and I have the parts I installed in another car. But driving 18 wheeler OTR doesn’t give me a lot of time to put something together.Oh, so no way to show and compare if this mod is worth a hoot?
