    Here is mine. Oem heads painted gloss black. Square mini D2s hi and low. Switchbacks and had the shrouds painted candy red to match suspension. Hooked up the lights to have functional "shutters"? So top and bottom projector are always on. Love the output IMG_4853.JPG

    Almost have mine done. Mini h1 with square mini Gatling shrouds and Rigid DOT pods. Going to run a DRL strip across the center divider of the bezel and paint everything satin black.

    Are you talking about the bi-xenon cutoff shields?

    I don't know enough about it to even know if that is the right name lol. The hi and low beam lights are on all the time. The cutoffs are aimed down and when I switch to hi beam. Both projectors flip up and the fog lights shut off.

    Ok gotcha, just making sure you weren't talking about something new I hadn't heard of lol.

    Yeah those are just standard projector shields that create the cutoff to keep from blinding others. Bi-xenon projectors like those have an actuator to flip the shield out of the way for high beam function.

    Wish I would've done a quad retro but just didn't wanna risk messing it up.

    I've always wanted a quad setup but having four steps in the cutoff not lining up would send my OCD out of control. :crazy:
