Does not work. Because the plate HAS to be in the frontest part of the vehicle. I had my plate on bottom right hand of windshield by the passenger and still got a ticket

Haha I guess cops around here don't care as much. I had mine like that even when they first passed the law making it so with the frontmost part thing. Still slipped by

The h1 kit comes with an adapter so it's less modification of mounting the projector into the housing

well not quite, but yours is one of a few that I keep up with. I'm keeping mine pretty close to the vest till she's done. Only because it's taken me 2 years just to strip it down to the shell. Now it's time to put it all back together. Besides, it's a wagon so your statement should be the other way around.

Look forward to seeing the lights done, ETA?

There was a backorder on the morimoto 35w ballasts so there's a few days of delay before they send it to me..I'll give it approximately 2 weeks since I have a pretty busy schedule with work and college

got a liitle work to do before I worry about modding my lights, all the suspension and related parts were powder coated. Welded up the seams on the cross-member before coating. Might as well take advantage of all the perks of working in a nice fab shop.
