Very nice, how do those projectors look from the back?
Do you have any beam pattern shots?

From the back they look like they don't belong there, but you're not going to see once installed. As far as beam pattern,no I forgot to take a shot, but if you look closely to one of the pictures you can see it through the reflection on the paint.

Awesome work aggressiva! You are really talented - and creative. Can't wait to see the headlight project. I may hold off on mine and let you lead the way!

Thanks, I keep hearing that there is not enough space in the headlights for two projectors, but if there is a will there is a way, so I will try. It might take me a little while, but i'm sure it can be done.
Thanks for all the positive fedback

I got a chance today,so I went to see my car and took a beam pattern shot.
Note that I haven't install the HID's yet. And the color band should improve once I install them, but for now it looks really good and the color band is not that bad it gives a yellow color. It's hard to see it in the pics, but is there.

it's not technically a cover...it's a whole housing. It has a reflector bowl and a cutoff plate, and a glass lense. They are typically 4-8" long. You have to cut a hole and mount them. Look up retrofitting online and you'll see what he did.

I can see the pictures and it looks like he used the lenses and put them over on the BULBS? I seen the retrofitting done before,It just doesn't look like he did that here?

I was secretly hoping I would be the first to do a fog projector retro. Its good to see that it came out well. I was planning on moving the signal to the headlight. Is the signal visible enough at night with the fogs on at the same time?

Are you hoping to do something like this with something like this?
