Fitting Door Projector Lights25th March 2020
Please note these door projector lights were sent to me for review.
However if they turn out to be rubbish then I will say so and immediately remove them.
They arrived today by courier from Germany; about a week after I was first contacted.
A good start because the plastic feels thick and strong 👍
Okay, wizard, I will. Thanks!
So, I found this in my tool box…
Connect the short cable that comes with the kit…
The second I plug in the projector lamp it starts projecting 🤓
And now the excitement is quashed – it dawns on me rapidly that these door projector lights aren’t going to just pop in.
It appears these two tabs on the door card are going to prevent a flush fit 🤬
And now my options are what?
- put back my original light and throw these things in the bin (and send a ‘spicy’ email to the supplier!)
- make some sort of gasket out of double-sided foam tape and live with how it’ll look
- cut away those two tabs and fit these projector lights flush (there’ll be no going back if I do that)
So out comes my trusty old hobby knife. I need to go careful. 🥶
Add a little Super Glue around the edges…
Push the lamp into the newly widened gap and apply light pressure using my support tool…
No issue down there…
Good times. 😎
I apologise for no night shots. I will add once I’m out there when it’s dark.
Conclusion on these door projector lamps is that they are of good quality, the materials used are decent if the look and feel is anything to go by. Long-term who knows but I will update this (and the Project Yeti Facebook page) in a few months.
By the way there is no nag from the onboard computer after fitting these. 👌
Feel free to stay tuned for more modifications I have planned.
You can see what I have done so far, here: Yeti Customisation
And I am always interested to hear about your Yeti, whether customised or not.
