Looking good!

Which reminds me that I'm going to need a new set of retros soon, my lens are yellowing again and you can only wet sand them so many times.

Are you running the little high beam flaps on the HIDs as well as the extra bulbs? They make a world of difference. I honestly found that solution good enough to put the projector in place of the high beam bulb! Requires more tight fitting than a projector in the low beam slot, but of you're okay with some adventuring a 4 projector system can look very classy, and be very very bright.

Yes, The Morimoto Mini that I have has the high beam flaps. I think they should fit in the high beam no problem. Now you have me thinking. I could order a second set of projectors for the highs.....

Just test fitted the projectors on the highs. They don't fit. I am going to keep the LED in the high. I like the red diode, its a nice accent color that matches my car.

Required some expansion of the hole and modification to to the securing surface, the bezel i'm still trying to find a good fit, but there are ways of going about it. Just need an entire other set of projector kit.

I had Albin build mine, he did a terrific job. Minimoto projectors and E55 shrouds.

Beam pattern width and length are nuts!

Damn Scottwax, Awesome beam pattern. I can't wait to get mine installed. Waiting on a replacement projector then they go on.
