Often requested, but never delivered: a stylish square-lens version of the Mini H1 projector. Although a true square-lens version of the Mini H1 still doesn’t exist and probably wont…here comes the next best thing: A revised version of the Mini Gatling shroud with a squared-off opening to surround the lens!
Though the geometry of the shroud cuts off part of the projector lens to create the squared off look, light output will be unaffected, believe it or not!
Don’t make the mistake of thinking all shrouds are created equal. Even though less expensive alternatives may be available elsewhere: our 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.
Could not be any easier with the Square Mini Gats. Four internal posts line up to the bolt pattern on the mid-section of any generation Mini H1 projector, so they’ll bolt right up!
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 Dremel EZ Lock cutting wheels to make the job easy.
