Hello everyone and welcome to my MK4 Jetta Retrofit Tutorial!! This is the first and only HD Video Tutorial on how to easily make your stock Reflector Headlights into custom Projector Retrofits.

For this tutorial I used LS460 Lexus Projectors, they have a 3.6 inch lens diameter and are the largest projectors in the world, and the largest ever put in an MK4 Jetta (challenges welcome).

Resources:
Lexus LS460 Projectors
AAC Style 115mm 5360 SMD Halos
3.5 inch Red LED strips
Stock Headlight housings (duh)
Permatex Black Gasket Maker
Purple Plumbing GOOP
180 grit Sand Paper
Masking Tape (any)
15-20 Torx Wrench
4in-3in PVC Reducer (Home Depot)
(Wiring, sodler, soldering iron, elec. tape, etc)

Thanks dude, appreciate it

Projectors i got cheap (ordered wrong type)
Hella Lenses $70 (Ebay)
HIDs $65 (DDM Tuning)
PVC Shrouds $14 (Home Depot)
Angel Eyes were $100 from AAC Style
LEDs were cheap $5
Camo Wrap $20 from MetroStyle
Paint/Primer $10

what kills you is the glue, epoxy, razrs, dremel bits, sandpaper, bolts, etc....cheap stuff but you dont know u need them until u do, constant trips to Home Depot and Ebay lol
Probably 300 in the end

Mad props man looks very nice. I think I might add halos, green demon eyes(or would that be goblin eyes?), LED strip(maybe), and painting the inside of my Euros black. Should be about the same process right?
