Plan for us on Friday is to depart from Leduc at 5:00am and hopefully get to the base by 9:30.
Ski as much as we can and then make the long trek home that night.
Will be an exhausting day but I have a nice long weekend lined up and I've just got my HID kit delivered so retrofit weekend!

+1 for pictures when complete

As a piece of advice, don't rush. If you can only get one done over the weekend then leave the next one for the following weekend. And don't be afraid to load up on the RetroRubber butyl glue, it will help keep out dreaded condensation. Excited to see the final product!

I have a 5 day weekend, obvs Friday is ski day. Saturday will be dismantle and remove headlights (hopefully separate and prep for paint). Sunday hoping for paint to be complete if not, extra coat. Monday reassemble and test, if all goes well I should get it all done and installed by Tuesday.

Jim, let me know how the snow is at Sunshine. It will help us decide if we want to go to Sunshine or Lake Louise on Saturday.

How was Sunshine for you?

We ended up going to Lake Louise until late afternoon it was sunny and fantastic conditions. Ended up getting free Lake Louise Ski cards so the extra 50k sure paid off haha.

Sorry forgot to text you on Friday. Sunshine was fantastic, loads of snow and powder. Visibility was poor up on the top of Lookout/Great Divide but overall was an awesome day skiing. Then I spent the rest of the weekend working on this:

Nice work, the yellow shrouds really pull it together! Any output/cutoff shots?

Yellow fogs to complete the theme??.... :P

Already have amber LED's in the fogs but was considering painting the chrome surrounds yellow also. Not sure yet.
I still have a minor bit of adjustment in the projectors, like 2° to level them. Will post up some more pictures in my build thread today.
