Its an extremely easy procedure. Believe me, if I had a way to make clear lenses, I would have installed a projector retrofit a long time ago. I just haven't gotten that far yet, nor have I discovered the means to make clear lenses. I may still consider it in the future.
Here'* the basic procedure.
Remove the headlights. Should be a few bolts on the back, and disconnect the bulbs. Its very easy.
Leave your headlights out in the sun on a hot day, or put them in the oven on the lowest temperature you can for a short period of time. This melts the silicone that keeps the lense sealed to the housing.
Take the lense off the housing. Using masking tape, mask off all vertical reflecting surfaces, and the top reflecting surface, leaving only the bottom flat surface exposed. sand the surface with some small grit sandpaper; somewhere around 500-800. Wipe off with a damp towel after sanding, and paint with high heat flat black paint.
Let dry for 2-3 hours, remove the masking tape, and use a new tube of silicone sealant to seal the lense back onto the housing. Reinstall, and you're done. Your HID'* will now cease to blind people.
