Honda Inspire (HID) headlights

Hi everyone here is another Imported JDM project I did of the Inspire headlights. A bunch of work was done for this I hand built the HID harness with high quality material. Another interesting thing I came across was you can get connectors separately from Honda/Acura and solder or crimp the positive and ground wires as I show in the pictures of the turn signal and the ballast the OEM connectors on my HID harness. I know most of you are going to have questions so please feel free ask.
Here are the pictures.

I hate amber myself, so I think it looks much better now. Nice work! Love everything you've done with the car so far, just wish you had gone with some larger wheels lol. Keep up the good work man.

Cutoff pictures? Are you talking about the beam pattern of the lights?

i ask because i saw these on ebay around $200 before i did my retro, and another guy on a different site said his cutoff was horrible and he decided to retro his. i think he said his had the leveling motors and he couldnt get his aimed right. he didnt specify if his was RHD or LHD, and didnt post pics of his cutoff.

Gotcha, everything I did is OEM Honda and no problems. My cut-off is not bad but I was using the correct bulb D2R probably that other guy was using a D2S.
