I used a Dremel with a small cutting wheel, but I didn't cut the lens, I cut the part of the housing that overlaps the lens when installed.

I love that you painted the inside flat black. I did that to one of my first cars - I think it looks sweet.

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

billybrun, were all the components purchased from theretrofitsource? If not, where?
Going to attempt this project soon. Anything you would do differently or should I follow your example here?
Thank you.

Awesome job! Worth the effort, especially a nice touch with the black paint.

Re: HID projectors headlamp retrofit - DIY (picture heavy)

It's a bi-xenon projector which means the shield lowers to fully expose the bulb (high beam).

That, plus the regular high beams, lots of light when you hit the high beams and all 4 are on.
