about 90 bucks...(67 for projectors, and about 25 for the paint) and maybe 20 hours working on it.

actually, those aren't the same ones im using. These are.

If the ones you posted from hidplanet are the same as these, which seem to be real similar, they are rediculously overpriced. Here they are from the seller I bought them from.

How did you get the bezel rings to stay in the housing?
So you basically fixed the projector adjustment bolts to the factory housing and put a stopnut between the housing and the projector as a stop, and then used a nut on the backside of the projector to hold it steady? So all you have to do is take off that back nut and slide the projector off the "studs" you made?
Thanks,
Jesse

I have a brand new set of D3S projectors with OSRAM ballasts and bulbs for sale if anyone wants to do this retrofit with OEM HID parts.
