Looks great. Did you do it yourself or have someone else do it? Cost of parts? Time or cost to have it installed? Thanks for sharing.

@sc crv
Thanks! It took me about ~20hrs thru out the week. Parts listed was bought from The Retrofit Source and I highly recommend them for your retro. Cost I would say roughly $350 + my time.

@Honda4Life
Thanks! I nearly convinced myself to just throw HIDs on and call it a day. Glad I went the retro route.

I also want to thank CyC for sharing his retro and experience.

Nice!!!! Glad to see you were finally able to have the time to do the retrofit! Its always nice to see a proper Retrofitted headlight and not some ebay projectors or HID bulbs in halogen housings. Nice and clean job!

I also broke a few of my grille clips, those things are a PITA.

Using Halos for DRL's?

btw the link to HIDPlanet doesnt work on the thread, but the one on your signature works.

Im currently shopping for a 4th gen and if I get one I will definitely PMing you about the wiring when using drl's. Had been planning a retro for my 2nd gen but, that wont be happening now.

Also, did you ever bother with figuring out how to run the fog/driving lamps with just the parking lamps on by chance?

BTW, post some night shots of you could.
