Default projector retro

so I am gathering parts to start playing with a dual projector setup. I made a deal for some busted headlights to hack up and play around with before messing with my lights

currently watching these http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT with the intent to low bid them when they end if I don't get these I have a few more ideas in the works and will update as I gather more parts


any ideas or comments would be welcome...especially looong4 since he has done it already

Those will look great, but getting them all aimed right might be a bit of a chore. Would like to see a write up on this if you don't mind.
