MINI GRAPHITE: One of the available “standard” options for the Morimoto Mini H1 bi-xenon projectors, these unique looking shrouds are composed of translucent smoked gray plastic that glows when the lights are on. Since it wont fit anything else, the Mini Graphite shrouds are a no-cost option with the Morimoto Mini H1 projectors.
IN COMPARISON: Don’t make the mistake of thinking all shrouds are created equal. Even though less expensive alternatives may be available elsewhere: Morimoto shrouds are made from the highest quality plastic and have by far the most durable metalized chrome finishes. The cheap-o’s out there are flimsy enough to deform from the heat just a 35W HID bulb, and their chrome finish easily flakes off.
MOUNTING: Centric Rings are not included by default, but are highly recommended to improve ease of installation on many projectors. The Centric Rings are simple reducers that clip into the shroud to reduce the inside diameter, making them more of a “press fit” onto the lens holder of the projector. Epoxy is also recommended in order to prevent the shrouds from vibrating loose over time.
LED HALOS: Are a unique and effective way to further customize the look of your projector retrofit. Check out our angel eyes if you’re interested. These shrouds feature a unique smoked translucent plastic that will glow with light if you wanted to do something a bit different and mount the halos inside.
TRIMMING: Please note that trimming shrouds is a common task when retrofitting. Whether required to clear part of the projector, or fit within the geometry of your headlight housing; it’s normal. Luckily, they’re made of plastic – making that easily possible. We recommend a Dremel hand tool with EZ Lock cutting wheels to make the job easy.
