With almost 20 years of automotive lighting experience, we offer a vast list of services and possibilities for most headlights in the industry. We continue to research and develop new types of headlight modifications ranging from basic cosmetic upgrades and performance lighting enhancements, to complete retrofit and overhaul jobs.

LED Rings is another term we use to describe LED "Angel Eyes" or "Halos". Commonly found on BMWs from the factory, the style was adapted by automotive enthusiasts and manufactured on a scale to accommodate all vehicle makes & models. Our LED rings are manufactured to our specs and different sizes, allowing us to offer this product universally to all vehicles. We can custom modify them to fit certain shapes where other rings simply cannot. They come in many colors, providing an elegant PURE hue, and have an extremely long lasting life span (5+ years).
The Demon Eye consists of several high powered LEDs strategically placed behind a projector lens and illuminate it with a glow of a selected LED color. This modification is strictly cosmetic and does not improve, nor impact the headlights light output - available in RED | BLUE | GREEN | PINK | AMBER | RGB. In cases where a customer would want to do a "DUAL LED Demon Eye", a "Dummy Projector Lens Retrofit" or an additional "Projector Retrofit" would need to be present, or planned for the modification. Only certain vehicles will allow for this modification, contact us to see if yours qualifies.
All paint work is done in a downdraft paint booth, using automotive paint and clear coat. We offer finishes in matte and in gloss. We can also mask certain areas of the headlights for a unique look. We strive for the finest quality using extremely rich and thick clear gloss finish. If you're unsure of what paint scheme you want to go with, feel free to ask us for advice by providing us some details of your car, like a picture or a list of cosmetic mods. We guarantee no paint drips, and provide 1 year warranty against any paint chipping or fading.
A dummy projector lens is retrofitted into the headlight to imitate a projector. It does not function as a real low/high beam projector because there are no internals to install any Xenon bulbs. Reason for this modification is usually a substitute to a plastic lens on the turn signals (in most Japanese & US vehicles) or cornering lights (Commonly on BMWs). Another reason many choose this modification is to accommodate a dual "LED Demon Eyes". The dummy projector lens provides a great cosmetic styling by removing the factory amber or clear plastic lenses that look or shaped odd. In many cases, it also helps project a brighter beam when placed in front of a turn signal bulb or cornering lamp.
This cosmetic modification is only available for headlights which have an existing projector, whether it was retrofitted, or its a factory (OEM) feature. The main advantage to retrofitting a custom shroud is to accommodate additional modifications that normally wouldn't be possible with your original shroud. Our variety of shrouds range in designs, shapes, and sizes. The type of shroud we can offer depends on the headlight design, so its a very unlikely case in which all shroud are universal to each headlight. You would need to contact us to determine which shroud accommodates your headlights best, or provide us with a photo for additional details. Some headlights have stock shrouds that are part of the headlight housing and a retrofit is not possible.
As part of a COMPLETE headlight package from ShopPMLIT, we like to ensure that a custom set of headlights receive not only styling upgrades, but performance upgrades as well. In other words… FORM & FUNCTION. We study each headlight in great depth to review the possibilities of increasing its light output, and precision. Our full inventory of projectors, projector upgrades come from a highly reputable brand in the automotive lighting industry.
Power is nothing without control. Retrofitting is the process of installing a xenon or bi-xenon projector into a reflector based halogen headlight. It is the best HID headlight upgrade possible since the projector will control the light into a properly dispersed, non-glaring beam pattern. We are able to provide a halogen to xenon or bi-xenon projector retrofit, or add a second additional xenon or bi-xenon projector for even more light output!
Most OEM projectors out there come standard with what is known as "fresnel" lenses. These projector lenses have circular lines molded into their surface, and are often produced with less than optically clear glass. So what? Well the fresnel lines and frosted/ translucent glass dim the output and soften the beam pattern so the projectors aren't performing to their full potential. A true clear lens will help maximize the performance of the projector compared to the "de-tuned" stock lenses. Think of a projector just like any other original part on your car, of course there will always be an aftermarket performance/aesthetic upgrade available. Why doesn’t the car come with the most free flowing exhaust from the factory? Why aren't the throws in the transmission shorter? The brakes stronger? The headlights brighter?
Compared to their halogen counterparts, HID/LED Bulbs offer three more times the light output, ten times the lifespan, and a wide range of Kelvin ratings from a golden yellow 3000K to a brilliant white 6000K. The bulbs easily offer the most bang for the buck for D2S bulbs. They're available in a variety of K ratings to suit everybody's tastes, they're precisely aligned for a nice crisp beam pattern, and they use a special mixture of halide salts to give them intensity and longevity similar to the specialty bulbs. As the gold standard today, they have the most lumens, great reliability, and you can still get a ton of color flicker with them despite their 5000K color temp.
Your vehicle headlights are not any different from your own eyes. The same way you go to see a doctor for an eye exam, it's the same attention that your car headlights deserve. Don't try to enhance something on your car without addressing its' condition, and that same saying goes for your headlights. If you want to modify your headlights, but they are either condensated, have broken parts, or the lens is in bad shape, make sure you let us address those issues before proceeding with any modifications. It is very common that we receive headlights from a customer which experienced an accident and were poorly repaired by the body shop, had condensation with corroded plugs and wires, or simply foggy lenses that were dull and impossible to see through. We can address all of those issues, and make sure that you invest your money wisely and protect it from any further damage or financially draining you.
For over 20 years, auto manufacturers have been producing cars with composite headlamp units made from either polycarbonate or acrylic materials. The lenses can become cloudy and discolored due to oxidation, pitting caused by sand and other debris coming in contact with the surface of the light, and harmful UV rays. It is EXTREMELY important that if your lenses are in bad shape, you should consider either replacing your headlights with new lenses, or allow us to perform a restoration on them. It would be a waste of time and money modding headlights with pitted or cloudy lenses as you will never see the beautiful detail inside the headlight, and will sacrifice your headlights output. Our procedure to restoring a lens is a complete and full wet-sand and polish to bring back the shine. To protect the restored finish, we apply a thick clear film over the lens which protects it from any further damage or deterioration In case your headlight lenses are beyond repairable, we recommend purchasing another set, or speaking to us directly about providing you with a replacement pair of lenses if available.
Moisture / condensation is the main factor in headlight failure. When water or condensation starts to form from the inside of the headlight, it will experience electrical shortage, and failure in many components which can cost hundreds of dollars in repairs. Our number one priority when working with headlights is to repair and prevent any moisture or other elements from building or accessing the inside of a headlight. With 20 years of opening and sealing headlights, we have seen it all – flooded headlights, deteriorated headlight seal due to sandy and dusty environments, and even small critters trapped inside. Whether your headlight is brand new, or used, we can repair and insure a tight seal on the headlight to prevent any future moisture build up. Some cars come brand new from factory with condensation in the headlights.
Headlights in this technological day and age can be extremely costly to replace, and extremely expensive to repair by those who hardly do it. We know headlights, in and out, and we know them best. Whether your headlight was hacked up by some amateur attempting to install an HID kit and splice up a bunch of wires, or you were involved in an accident and your body shop claimed to have replaced your headlight, but in fact just ended up repairing it with some tape and construction screws – we can almost fix it all, and if we can't, then no one else can. Some headlights can be so expensive, and so rare that a replacement just doesn't seem like an option. We can repair most of the issues, and if they are beyond repair, we can use donor headlights for parts to the last screw.
