    Heightwise? If you need to adjust them up and down, why don't you use the adjuster on the headlight bracket?

    Yes, the projector wasn't in the housing when I painted. Painted the shroud also.

    Cut it so if you had a bulb there, it would face outward, away from the middle of the car. If not, the beams may point too much toward the middle of the car and cross each other. See what I'm saying? It was hard to explain.

    To avoid gaps under the headlight. If I went to how you mounted them I could move the threaded end up and down some changing the angle of the projector inside the capsule. When I mounted mine I only cutoff the first layer on the backside of the capsule. I then used the ring that fits inside of the hole, so my angle is pretty much fixed and isn't adjustable. I think I like the way you mounted it more.

    Oh I see.

    I can't get the high beams to work. TRS has been emailing me back and forth for 2 weeks now, telling me to try this and that. Nothing has helped. About to tell them I want a whole new harness to try.

    Retro fogs would take a lot of work for sure. You'd also need a very small projector.

    Boostjunkie did p6 projector fogs, although said it was a lot of work. The only option I can think of off the the top of my head as far as size goes would be a blazertech. But output is probably meh at best.
