2002 hilux sr5 headlight conversion

Unread post by stufftheIFS- » December 28th, 2011, 6:08 pm

here we are boxing day 2011 4 years after i started my hilux build and now i'm doing all the finishing touches
2002 RZN149R to ln150 sr5 Headlight conversion, this is a relitively simple conversion for those with some mecanical aptitude (i'd never done this before so it was totaly guess work for me and thought i'd make it easier for others and blog it step by step )
step one
remove all standard grill by sliding the plastic clips down, unscrew the indicators and remove , un screw lights and remove

step two
now once you have everthing removed you wil see the light buckets (brackets the lights are bolted two ) they look like the picture below
Image
step three
now drill out the 6 spot welds you will see them as round indents like you driled a 1mm deep hole
Image
Image
once you have done this you are ready to apply some force in the form of a cold chisel and hammer
light bucket removed
Image
then you will have a bare radiator support panel like this pictured below
Image
Image

step four
now you are ready to mount the new rn150 light mounts you will find these attached to your lights . there is no need for drilling all holes are already there including guild holes .
brackets mounted
Image
step five
once the brackets are in you can fit your new ln150 lights i used the performance brand from panelhouse in slacks creek $260 complete with every thing needed to fit .

They are nice lights. I put them in mine a few months ago but they ate too high on the passenger side and blind people badly. I have had to do a fair bit of work to redesign the cut off plate to make them suitable to drive with so I'm not blinding everyone.

how did you centre the light so they face straight? I did the same conversion and they cross each other on high beam lol

Looks like I got away with modifying anything on my 2000 RZN169R Hilux
