The casings look empty for some reason. Too much space around the projector. Maybe it's because you painted the surrounding orange.

HEY..I found my twin evil bro. I think if you paint the shroud different color all together like silver or gun metal, it would blend in better. What projector are you using? from the picture it doesn't look like Mini but it looks like 2.5" lens, so let me guess FX-Rs with Gatling Gun Shrouds. More pict please...............

Good work with the retro for sure and spread the good news.

I actually like that red. I usually am more on the conservative side with modding opinions and standing out but I think those look really neat. I love the look of retrofitted 5th gen headlights. As others have said I'd like to see some output shots as well.

Why? I don't see anything wrong with it. The wheels look like they might have been spraybombed but I don't see anything else that's a problem.

Don't like the colour but that's just my preference. I also think they look way out of place, but I feel that way about most large housings with single projectors...

Great job! The color sections on the shroud is pretty cool. Looks good but personally, I also think there seems to be a big hole in the housing, but we all have different tastes. Maybe you can do some custom pinstriping or graphics on the reflector section and end up with something radically unique!

If you are able to, this video might be helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2uGPe0aZgU

Vacuum form a heated piece of acrlyic then use vacuum to pull it onto the headlight. Next you cut it to fit, then cut a hole to mount the projector.

Otherwise, good work!
