Many vehicles from the past are outfitted with “sealed beam” headlights from the factory, which means that the headlight housing and the headlight “bulbs” are one and the same. There are no replaceable capsules like modern headlights and when the filament burns out the entire assembly needs to be replaced. We’ve seen this issue overcome multiple times in the past by manufacturers creating something called composite headlight conversions. This means you take a headlight housing (round or square) that is the same dimension as the old style sealed beam housing but the new product has replaceable light bulbs. This allows for less expensive and less time-consuming light bulb changes and the opportunity to upgrade with high power halogen light bulbs or HID conversion!
Watch this video review I did on a set of the GTR Lighting 7×6 Tru-Projector Headlight Housings:
The problem that people have run into in the past with this type of product, however, is that when installing an HID component into these new headlight housings, the light output was super bright and blinding! In order to do away with this issue all together, GTR Lighting has introduced a line of single-beam housings that use real OEM grade projector lenses. The product line is called Tru-Projector and can be used with a halogen bulb or HID and provides the coveted cutoff line that all enthusiasts seem to be after today!
This product has never existed before, so it is very exciting to be able to add an actual projector headlight to an older car. The two biggest benefits are performance and style. Not only do these headlights use a real projector assembly (not just a cheap lens) but they also utilize an LED halo ring constructed from fluted plexiglass. Simply wire the halo to your parking lights (2 wires, positive and negative) or a switch inside your vehicle for an updated custom look:
