So is it hard to put the new housing in? Are they high and low beam?

Cool!

I was thinking about doing something like that. If you need a hand with the install, let me know. Please be aware that I have no actual skill, but I do own a sawzall and a blowtorch...

What temp did you guys bake your lights? I was thinking about 275oF for about 10 minutes? Also, do I need to put more selant in the lights afterwards?

Let me know how it goes. It sounds easy, but I'll probably screw up somehow. I'm gonna do a retrofit on my stock headlights too.

200F is enough. At 275 you'll melt 'em.

Bake @ 200F for 15 minutes. You shouldn't need any more sealant as long as you don't wipe off any of the stock stuff.

Clearing the headlights is the easiest mod I've done - I don't know about retro fitting, though!

Retrofitting would involve cutting out the area where the main bulb resides. Mounting the projector, aligning it, making shrouds, covering the Bi-xenon solenoid, wiring up the bi-xenon solenoid, paiting the inside of the reflector (gunmetal), re-sealing the back of the projector, making a wiring harness so that the xenon bulbs are powered straight from the battery and not using stock wiring (well, only for relay trigger), making a relay harness for the bi-xenon solenoids. That should be it. Once I'm done, I'll be a happy camper.

Anyone in Calgary has a a set of spare headlights they can lend me for a month or so while I work on mine??

I guess I was lucky and won an auction on Ebay for HIDTECH Type S shrouds. Pretty fancy, and they clip on to the Hellas.
