The projectors create the cut-off pattern. that'* why HID bulbs are almost exclusively used in projector housings and not reflector housings. They properly spread the light pattern. (and cut it off to prevent blinding oncoming traffic)

I'm really interested, that looks great!
Do you have any write ups at all or pics of installation?

No I do not, I took 1 pic while I was making the bracket but it was on a cell phone.

I will take pics tomorrow of the bracket for ya. Because the housings come with nothing at all, so u'll have to go buy a piece of flexable metal.

Alright thanks
And you'd better do a write up if you're going to do them headlights
Then we could possibly have like a techinfo for it

I just need to find a decent price on an extra set of headlights and then I will start the headlights. Sooo if anyone see'* some let me know!

I do it all at work so It shouldnt take me that long I just don't want to dish out 200+ for a set of headlights.
