Default Just a thought, HID thread

So I've been thinking about something, If I would install an hid kit on my 02 wrx and made a light shield on the low beam to block light to form a cutoff while using a 9006 bulb (since it will fit perfect. Take out the turn signal bulb and splice the wires into the parking lamp bulb so its still running on the 168 bulb. Then modify the connection for the turn signal housing to fit say an h1 or h7 bulb in there.

This way, low beam stays on all the time even when high beams are on, turn signal bulbs are moved over slightly to where parking lights are and the high beams will only turn on when highs are selected. something like this would not be an issue, I would just have to run the wires off the high beam relay switch in parallel so lows stay on when you switch them to high.

The only issue is making or getting that metal piece to make a cutoff and putting it in the housing, along with modifying the housing. I'm not too worried about hot spots on something like this.

I'll pry this later with an hid kit of my buddies so see if I can even make a metal piece as a sheild for it.

Does anyone think this would be a plausible yet cheap alternative to blinding people or an expensive retrofit kit?
