I love the FX-R projectors, it's a day and night difference compared to HID's in stock housings. I bought the HID kit at www.theretrofitsource.com
I only have this pic of the cutoff, the driver's side projector needs to be rotated a little.

I bought them from a member on here. His screen name is SilverSS/SC and he made them pretty much from scratch. You can't just gut them and put them together because the astra lights are a bit bigger as a whole.

Blownss06 makes them custom to order. he will do pretty much anything you would like and use whichever set up you want. great price considering the time it takes to make these and the cost of materials!

just PM him dont think he has a website or anything

x2. Do some research by using the search tool and typing his username into the "search for posts" section. That's what I did. I found out what he was capable of doing by seeing his work. Also, you can look at his gallery which includes numerous pictures of his work. You can also get some ideas by using theretrofitsource.com as well.

Billig, looks great man. Do you know what kind of projectors and shroud were used? Also, any pictures of them running? Color temperature of the bulb?

Let's see some more retros!

Just ordered my HID kit from DDM.
