All I see is really bad lighting pointed straight down onto the road, which is very dangerous. You will need to take some pictures of your "cutoff" up against a flat wall to show your results. I give you credit for trying something different, but this seems a little too far fetched to go anywhere.
I'm making a shield to go over the top of the bulbs so it does not reflect into the top of the housing, this way most of the light is pointed down at the road and does create a cutoff effect. and yes, I know the light right now looks like crap, it was making a fairly good beam pattern last night before I tried to get rid of a hot spot on the driver side, then it got all sorts of messed up. So far it is turning out better than I thought but as I've said before, it's nowhere near finished it will be awhile til i get the light distributed how I want it.
