hmmmm. It's busy for me right now, full time student, full time work. I have tons of side jobs lined up(I do remote starts, radios, etc on the side) winter is my busy season with sidework since everyone wants a remote start. Installed two clifford 570.4Xs back to back yesterday on my day off.. If I find time, I would love to do yours, you'd just have to be patient!

Sounds good, I have a possible new job offer which would free up my saturdays which would give me time to do this stuff again. It'd be nice to have my saturdays back

that's what i'm saying man. I work 4 10s and I went to school two days a week until 7:30 PM, then sunday I had a buttload of homework. And when I have time I end up working on other peoples cars instead of my own.

I got the projectors even as far as horizontally, however after sealing them the stock adjustment screw wasn't raising and lowering them. The shroud appears to be touching the lens therefore it won't raise and lower. For some reason I had a brain fart and did not back the car up to check the height of the beam(it looked fine pulled up close). So I light up the first 5 ft of the road and thats it since they are pointed down. running high beams they actually light up the proper amount but there's some glare to oncoming drivers, my 3k fogs combined with the low beams will do a decent enough job until I have time to bake these open and fix the issue. Going to retrofit my buddies colorado while we're at it, since his parts are on the way.

The switchback LEDs look amazing too!

Merry Christmas to Everyone.

I'll post up pictures when everything is working properly! Learn from my mistakes and take your time and think I cant believe I never backed the car up to aim before sealing these
