    Anyway ................... You can see how shallow these units are. And don't forget, you can also move them forward as well. The other thing you'll notice is, the bulb holders point downward and don't actually stick-out like the OEM ones. This also gives you a little more space >>

    Yeah, thanks mate, that last one and a few from a previous post were uploaded directly from my computer, like an attachment, it seems to be the only way I can upload images. I remember having a photo album a while back, but it's not there anymore!? That's why all my other photos from previous posts are missing.

    Thanks Active8, I do have the 'Advanced Editor' selected with full WYSIWYG.

    As I've spent an awful lot of time in the workshop these past few weeks, I just wanted to upload a project update to show where we're at with the project. Doing it this way will be an absolute ball ache, but if that's the only way, so be it! Maybe I should ask Dan to look into it?

    Ideal... Just the info I was waiting to hear.
    So, are the classic range lights brighter that the standard headlights?

    Yes mate, even the 'Classic' range are far brighter than the T4's standard setup. The 'Performance' range are bright still
    But it's not all about how bright a light source is, it's more to do with where the beam is directed and how far down the road you can project the beam. What you really want is to see the road ahead, and not light-up the entire country side!

    Personally I think the old T4 OEM oblong headlights are a thing of the past, you just don't see car headlights with the reflectors etched into the glass anymore. You just can't beat a good projector type headlight unit for low beams. Firstly, the 'cut-off' point is so distinctive and so well pronounced that visibility can never be matched when compared to the OEM headlights. Adjusted correctly your low beam should look like this. These are the Hella 'Classic' range >>

    Compared to the T4' OEM low beam - No definitive pattern to the low beam >>

    Now the T4' high beam - Actually not too bad on mine as I've got brand new OEM units >>

    And now the Hella 'Classic' range high beams - Straight away you can see where the beam of light is concentrated, right in the middle and further up. And much brighter >>

    Those tests were carried out without an upgraded wiring loom as I hadn't designed it yet, so the results can be even better than those in the pictures. The other thing to consider is, when you adjust your headlight units, particularly on the OEM setup where you have the H4 dual filament bulbs, you can't raise your high beam to see further down the road as this would also raise your low beams, and you will only blind oncoming traffic. With a quad headlight system you are free to adjust your headlight units independently, low beams as per legal requirements and your high beams slightly up in order to see more of the road ahead. Add to that, on a decent quad headlight system all four units can be ON at the same time when in high beam!
