headlamp housing/frame
« on: March 30, 2006, 02:48:13 PM »
di ko sure anong tawag dito pero the black plastic frame inside my depo headlamps is starting to melt and bend as a result of years of using high wattage bulbs. pwede kaya to pafabricate ng fiberglass then ireseal na lang?

eto yung headlamp ko. yung black housing sa loob ng headlamp yung medyo deformed na. eto yung usually pinapaint ata to get that JDM look.

I Had similar experience before with projector head lights.  I changed my bulb because I don't like the the color emitted (yellow).  I replaced bulb with super white bulb and still the same (yellow).  For the third time i changed it, using super white with a higher wattage and still the color was yellow.

The heat melted the housing.  The bulb still emitted yellow light. :(

Pag melted na, you have to buy new headlights. Moral of the story, stick with your original headlamps and use bulbs with standard wattages.
