Who/where did you ask? Did you see this? https://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f...ell-how-73659/

Most of the effort for mine was in prepping and painting the shrouds/reflectors and top covers (which you can leave all chrome and thus avoid) and cleaning the secondhand lenses I got for the job (if you use your own and they're good, you'd avoid this too). The most difficult part is where to cut to mount the projectors. If you get the FX-R models, then you can follow the cut marks shown in my photos which will simplify it tremendously too.

Then if you do it, you may also want to make this mod: https://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f...d-users-73671/

I am going to install projectors w/ angel eyes on my solstice but I would like to connect the angel eyes to turn on with DRL so the ambient light sensor will trigger the angel eyes on at daytime and headlamps at night. Does anyone know where is the DRL point I need to connect? Thank you in advance.

Hmm. did you see my "foglight" link in my post right above yours? That should give you the info.

Bringing this back from the dead yet again. I just got my GXP and I'm planning a retrofit. I cant find the shroud that covers the reflectors anywhere. Does anyone else have any leads as to where I might find them?
