It almost looks like you have your projectors upside down...

The foreground should always be lit, and the background gets lit up when you hit your highs...

why didn't you buy projector headlights from ebay? wouldn't it just be plug and play if you did that?

Would there be a way to do this while making the headlights still appear stock from about six feet away?

I'm about to do this same sort of project, already ordered some Mini H1's and shrouds. So, from what I gather, the eBay one piece lights have no adjustment capabilities. How is adjusting the projector in the headlight supposed to work? Isn't it glued into place? Isn't it possible to transfer the mounting brackets over from the stock headlights to have easy adjustment? That's what I'm wondering at the moment. I'm gonna do chrome(: Probably going with 55W 5000K H1 bulbs.
