    I had a HID kit and wasn't happy with the light scatter and didn't want to blind oncoming drivers so I decided to do something about it. I picked up a kit from retro-solutions and some aftermarket headlights off of eBay.
    It took me about 2 hours to retrofit the projectors in the headlight housing and about 30 minutes to install them in the stang.
    I think they turned out pretty good.

    That looks like an OEM job to me. :nice: And thank you for deciding to do it the right way, and save the vision of other drivers!

    I was hesitant on the HID lights as well, for courtesy sake. I made sure I test drove the car at night as well as during the day and had my brother driving in front of me so I could test out the blinding factor. Turns out the lights are angled very well and didn't bother him one bit, not even the fog lights. Only when I hit the high beams did he take a solar flare to the face. Anyone else test out their HIDs?

    Thanks but it wasn't professional enough. lol. The passenger side got some condensation in it and I had to take it off and reseal it. Not going to have that problem again though as I siliconed around the entire case this time. While I had it apart I decided to paint the reflectors and shrouds black. It looks 1000 times better IMO.
