So......who the heck are we, what the heck do we do? :toast:

RetroShop was founded in 2010 by me (Jeremy McFail) and the past 6+ years have seen a LOT of changes in the custom lighting scene! What started as an interest in lighting (in 2008) turned to crackin' headlights in 2009 to do my first HID projector retrofit on my Ram truck. In 2010, I did my next truck....then it turned into a hobby.....one that turned into a full time business. Fast forward to 2017 and we are focused on producing lights with excellent output (lets face it, stock lighting SUCKS!), and if the customer wants it - all sorts of customization options. We can do custom headlights, tail lights, fog lights, etc......painting small parts (badges, mirror caps, etc) and we offer HID kits and LED options as well.

RetroShop consists of 2 full time employees - Jeremy and Dave. Jeremy (myself) - the "face" of the company, the person who answers emails, texts, phone calls, forums, FB, Instagram.....hell - ummm, the communication dude! Dave, he's my jack of all trades here. Dave started as my part time painter back in 2011 and I finally convinced him that he needed to work for me full time in 2015. Dave does all of our paint work here, as well as many parts of our builds.

We are located in St Louis MO - so shipping in lights typically is 1-4 days from anywhere in the US. Our average turn around here is within a week (of receiving your lights) - or we can supply new lights for your build if you'd prefer to keep your OEMs, or just simply not have the downtime associated with customizing your lights. We are authorized dealers for The Retrofit Source / Morimoto and Diode Dynamics. 99% of our products are sourced through these great vendors!

As with any thread.......

:nopics:

Lets see what we've done!

Most of our Ford SuperDuty builds are focused on the 11-16 models, though we have completed builds for the 99-04, 05-07, 08-10 and 17 models as well. Our most popular build, Roger's F450 we did a while back, seen in this video:

Here's a quick video of a 05-07 as well:

My favorite saying is ..... "from mild to wild".

Not everyone wants the same thing, which is the amazing thing with custom lights. Want 'em black? Sure.....satin black, gloss black, tuxedo black, absolute black? Endless options! Don't want projectors, halos.....maybe you just want the amber reflectors replaced with clears? Yup, we can do that for you.

Check these 2 sets we shipped Friday.....look the same, but......

Tux black, stock amber:

Maybe you like chrome....and a little bit of black?

Black, silver and clear corners?

Switchback halos are a killer addition!

Great looking work...

Not ready for the truck just yet, but
would you be able / willing to do a street bike headlight upgrade?

Oddly enough....I have yet to do a bike! Bikes are a bit of a weird breed.....with the lack of depth its incredibly hard to do them on a mail order basis.....last thing I'd want to do is a killer setup.....then realize that it doesn't fit! :fustrate: At this time, we are really focusing on cars and trucks......maybe in the future we'll dabble on bikes!

I wish I had better organization of pics lol......years and years of them, but I don't think I have those pics on the truck.

Here's one that is close! (has a projector, no tint on the amber)

Whats the turn around time and rough cost on doing just a simple hid projector for the high/low beams? I hate the drop in led and hid bulb kits and what a quality hid setup in the factory lights.

Depends on the light, but most we use butyl on

WHY NOT

He sells the glue stuff to go back in them too, I got the clears and the glue from him and did mine.

Edit: beat me to it

That morimoto butyl tape is the bomb from you!!! Fits the channel perfectly and it isn't too much or too Little.
