Hid Projector Help

So I made the mistake of buying a product without consulting the almighty forums first. I bought an HID kit and installed it. Tons of light, just not in the right places. The high beams are pretty decent, light seems somewhat focused and even. Low beams are all over the place with hot spots and cold spots seemingly everywhere. Now I realize I need projectors but from what I have read on here none of the aftermarket assemblies are worth a crap. So that leads me to making my own. So, I have read that mikerider makes them and so do a few other members. Could you guys pm me your prices and availability? I'm not sure where to start on my own. The kit I bought is a direct replacement for 9007 bulbs. Is that a good thing? Will they fit projectors? Do I need different bulbs? My kit is bi-xenon. Thanks in advance.

Shoot me a pm with what your looking for what projectors, paint and leds you want, and what year your truck is and I can get you guys an estimate, I'm not really in the business of building them but happy to help out a few members here and there.

Since y'all are looking to get some made, I'll go ahead and publicly vouch for Mike, as I'm sure you may have read on other threads. He's a great guy to deal with, answered any questions I had, always kept me updated on his work, and can make some really nice stuff.

Quality projector retrofits aren't cheap, even if you're doing them yourself, so keep that in mind when you start talking prices with him or anyone else that may chime in. This is definitely a case of getting what you pay for, but it's worth it.
