Pat, you never cease to amaze me with your intents and resolve to carry them out. Once again, an awesome mod and looks G*R*R*R*E*A*T* (Tony the Tiger style) Some of these Really need to go into the HowTo Section Bud.

damn lookin nice Pat, I have always wanted to do a projector retrofit with some spare housings I have, I don't know if you have any ideas for a shroud but what one of my buddys did for a Regal was take some plexiglass and cut a circle in the center then slowly get it to the shape of the reflector to make it flat, came out really nice

ya that is a good idea, a popular shield is to take the drip trays from a stoves burners and mod them

Nice!. The way the housing is stepped in the rear, it even looks made for them. Again, great work.
