Nice job on the write-up! I plan to do the retrofit to my car sometime, and I too planned to try out running the lights without the extra mounting holes to see how they would work out.

The shrouds attach to the projectors with the included shroud-centric rings available from theretrofitsource.com. Look into them - they make it so you don't have to glue/epoxy the shrouds to the projector. Basically, they just snap onto the front of the projector.

The stock rear boot is used in this application, and I didn't mod the rear of the headlights at all.

The ability to mount the morimoto minis through the stock hole in the reflector bowl is one of the main reasons I went with that projector. I highly recommend the retrofit to anyone with moderate mechanical skills.
