Default Finally Bit the Projector Bullet

Well I have wanted them for awhile and I just got my taxes back so I went for it and bought some projectors for a Retrofit. Here is what I got.
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...roducts_id=237

The Bulbs I got
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...roducts_id=148

The shrouds I got
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...products_id=72

And I decided to go for the CCFL Angel eyes to tie into the parking lights.

Everything will be painted black with the exception of the parking light/Blinker reflector.

Also on the lens is there a way to delete the 3 tits off the headlight lens?

Shining my 160 lumen flash light through the hole in the back of the projector that's my cutoff line. Now just imagine 3500 lumens of HID goodness through the projector bowl

Well Ive been working on them for the last 4.5 hrs on the housings and this is where I stand as of now.

(I still have shrouds and Angel Eyes are still back ordered) They said they should ship out Friday)

Cooking them up in the oven. 200* for 10mins. then 215* for 5 when the started to cool didnt take too long

Next time I will use something other than my finger to hold pressure on the lens


9007 stock socket



I needed to modify just a tad bit to get the projector to sit right.



Mock up
