I assume camera settings are the same (aperture, shutter speed, white balance, etc)? How far were the lights from the wall?

That looks like a lot of scatter above the cut-off with the covers vs without.

The headlight and the camera were about 17ft from the garage door and yes, setting on the camera was the same on all three pics.
All taken with in 30 second

Hereís some good and bad news

Bad news
- Dark grey is out of the color choice.
For some unknown reason, it doesnít react to temperature the same way than the clear and light bronze
Iíve done so far and I canít reach my moulding temperature without getting bubble in it.

- Only 1 set of used brackets left and it has a bit more rust that the other ones, $15 (see pics)


Good news

- Better and much cleaner installation
- I have 8 fibreglass and 1 carbon fibre buckets available, first come first serve

Thanks

Buckets




Installation hardware




Result with light bronze

Call for help

As you can see in the pics below, itís looking good
But I need someone with a 951 / S2 ready to do a headlight conversion in my area.
The ideal would be someone in Ottawa but I can travel up to 2 hours to meet you.

Thanks

951 / S2 update

I remove the front nose of my 931 and put the 951 nose on.
Now I would like to validate the geometry with some measurements.
Please take a moment and pull the measuring tape on your car.
Measure ďAĒ will be easy and can be done by everyone, but ďBĒ can only be done by those without headlight on there car.
Please use metric measurement (centimetre and millimetre).

Thank you for your input

Looking nice. Started at last page and I am too lazy to go back through to find pricing for 951 conversion on my phone. Please let me know conversion cost.
