So before we start, this is a first test and I did not use the proper tools (crappy scissors, cut very approximately), it was just to have a quick idea of what I can do with some aluminium flashing and a pair of RHD bugeye HID projectors.

Edit: see post 33 for my second (much better) attempt.

In the process I also kind of neglected to double check the direction of the cutoff so it is still RHD but you get the idea. This one would will end up in the trash anyway.

Here is the OEM shield, no color whatsoever at the cutoff, I think this is because the oem shield is very thick and probably designed to eliminate any blue tint:

And here is the custom shield, it's crooked and all but remember this is a very quick test:

And a closer view of oem vs custom:

I still have to work on the curve of the shield, if I get it correct I think there will be some blue all along the line, and a more focused cutoff on the sides. It is already better than stock for the cutoff on the sides (pictures not included) but can be improved.

If it was'nt of the crappy reflective material on the bowls these projectors would be actually pretty nice... For this reason I do not foresee using these on my cars, but just for playing around. I will keep this updated with my future tests and attempts.
