H1 morimoto retrofit
ive been distracted from this project as of lately...
but i just resumed working on it and discovered the biggest upset of all...
1999-2002 silverado headlights are different sizes on driver/passenger side....
the driver side headlight reflector bowl for high and low beams is noticeably deeper than the passenger side.... the morimoto projector fits perfectly with some extra space in the driver side, but with it in place on the passenger side, the lens will not go onto the headlight because the projector sticks out too far...
this does not seem like a problem i can remedy..... looks like I am screwed for now...2000 Chevrolet Silverado

Are all 2000 Chevy truck headlight assemblys the same? Is there maybe another model that has a deeper reflector bowl on the right hand side? Or can a left hand side assembly possibly be modified to fit the right side?
Maybe theres an aftermarket model thats deeper.

not too sure, i checked my oem headlights currently on my truck and they are the same dish depths as these depo ones....

I wonder if aftermarket OEM-style assemblies by Certifit will also have the disparity in dish depths from driver to passenger side. It might be worth a call to your local Certifit to find out; they'll usually open the package and measure things for you if you ask them to do so -- at least the one that was local to me would.

My TYCs I have in mine are about 1/2" different but they both are pretty deep. Cool project though, keep us posted on your project.
