DIY: Pontiac Solstice headlights retrofit

Here is a DIY Video that I made for Pontiac Solstice headlight retrofit. For those of you that were waiting on this video, sorry that I took so long to make it. In this video, I am using custom reflector bracket that I built specifically for this vehicle, but for those of you that have the vehicle. Use the vehicle to aim the lights, and mark it on the wall. Thank you to Brian for the headlights.

Cause a friend of mine is willing to give me his old set for free and I was wondering if I can do this without messing things up for myself? I don't know what kind they are but I do know there off a S13 Nissan 240...if that helps? Thank you.

GregAV do they charge the same if you want to do it like you did (DIY) or are you still paying the 700? If its less then I will consider it to do it myself but if the same not sure about that then. I dont want to buy new headlights and have to send them to a shop and then wait.

Gonna have to give this a try over the winter, just picked up a pair of headlights from ebay.
Any reason why you used sealant rather than nuts+bolts to hold the projector?
Think the tl projector will fit in there?

Shabby.....TL's will fit no prob...even the Bi-Xenon ones.
I'd suggest the FX-R hybrids....they are amazing...and amazingly easy to retro!
I did nuts and bots on mine....just feel betting knowing it's metal in there instead of sealant.

Where did you get the projectors from? How are you planning to do make a shroud?
