How do you orient how the projector will illuminate. Do you just twist the light so the image points to the front of the car or to the side of the car or any other position.
You place it in the hole which is a snug fit and then you angle it where you want, then tighten the nut on the back side of the projector.
once tight, they aren't going anywhere.
I think one of those would look awesome shining down in the center of my trunk
i bought a set of the door projectors. since I knew I wouldn't be using the courtesy light any more, I simply drilled the mounting hole right through the center of the light housing. I then ran the wire to the bulb connector plug and soldered the wires there. The factory power plug still connects to the courtesy light like stock, so if I ever have to remove the projectors all I have to do is replace the courtesy light put in a bulb and go. By the projectors were a very cool mod and they look great.
These things are dope! Just ordered a set, I went with the 4th gen instead of the 5th gen as my car is black on black and wanted the black housing and mount opposed to the gold. I believe it was only 38mm in length so I dont think clearance will be an issue.
Second question: What if you wanted to put these on all 4 doors or doors without courtesy lights? After telling a buddy about them he wants to put some Chevy ones on his truck. I was thinking instead of tapping into the door light you could tap into the window motor lines instead but just the sound of that sketches me out. Maybe I am just overly cautions, someone more skilled in the electrical department care to help a brotha out?
Nice. I just may have to order up a set.
Mine just arrived from the E-Store....yeah! Total cost: 80$, or 20$ per door. Plus shipping (a whopping 5$).
I will be doing the install either tonight (will be showing off my motorcycle at a biker meetup...so may not get to it), or sometime tomorrow right after lunch.
Can't wait to get these installed and operational! Will post a very quick how-to with pictures for the 2008 CTS Premium. Will also do some Before / After shots.
Pacman - besides the ones for my CTS coupe, I just ordered a set with H.D. logo - was planning on mouting them in the outer corner of the saddlebag, so I get a bar-and-shield logo on the road at night ! :-)
Just go on e store and do a search for Cadillac logo door projectors. I bought a pair for $18 and see no difference between them and the more expensive models. They went in easy and they work great. They are certainly the biggest bang for the buck I've had in a while
I just installed mine yesterday, however the light is not visible at all during the day. Same deal for everyone else, or did I just get a weak set?
