honestly, i did my blackout headlight mod in like 4 hours... the projector conversion shouldn't be that much longer... drill one more hole, a little more masking, and the wiring... that's it man... i don't think it would take several days like the guy who did them had it take... i'm going to give them a try, but being my headlights have already been modified, it is going to be damn near impossible to get the lenses off again, as the glue i used to put it back together was silicone, not thermal glue

Exactly! Must have gap guards to fill that gap in the back. Summit Racing has em or you can mock something up yourself. Other than that, looks good. Congrats!

Do you like a body lift more than a suspension lift?

headlight mod is simple, 250 for 10 minutes, try it, if it doesn't seem to be working, pop it back in for another 10... i wouldn't let it get cold though, this is where i think i got the crystalization on my lenses... i do mine for 15 minutes at 250, and the plastic is still rock hard with absolutely no sign of melting, i don't think i have heard of anyone melting their headlights
