Bought some projectors

I decided to wait on the HID kit since I found out the projectors in my headlights now are not worth putting HID's into, so I bought a pair of nice quality 3" projectors off ebay tonight and im going to retro them into my headlights where the round reflector area is that holds the 9007s. The projectors will hold Halogen H7s or D2S xenon bulbs. For now, i'll just use h7s until I want to spend the money on HIDs. Since the projectors are only low beams, im going to use the smaller projectors that are all ready there as high beams.

I dont have that much money either...thats why I got some projectors that will use halogens until I get the money for HIDs, or until I want to get hids. That way, I can go ahead and have some projectors.
