A "wall shot" speaks a thousand words about a headlight setup. It immediately shows if one's headlights are aimed properly, and also gives a good idea of how much glare the lights are giving off. Not showing a wall shot in a thread like this, where the OP is specifically trying to affect the CUTOFF of his headlights, just doesn't make sense.

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.
You realize this is not only dumb, but extremely unsafe.
