If you put a shield on it, it won't do anything because the reflectors will still throw out crappy light. The only way around this is to do a retrofit.
what!?

Are you kidding me?
There are oem manufacturers that do put a shield around the top of hid bulbs to make them either not hot spot of have a better cutoff.


Also, if setup properly they have decent cutoff without any shield.
My buddies 96 civic for instance has a very pronounced cutoff in stock housings and has only two very minor hotspots. It can be done fairly well without a projector.
