    I'm not really sure what you're referring to... that's the normal parts list that comes with the mini h1 projectors? Did you buy a set of these projectors and it didn't come with the parts?

    H7 is the same bulb type as 9006. That's just a code.... "H7". H1 is the bulb type used in these projectors. I have no idea what you're referencing, but you'll use the parts in the exact order as shown in that pic I posted a few posts back. You should not have anything left over.

    you won't have to use the adapter plate.. plus you'd have to do a lot of grinding to get it that flat :p

    the rivets on the back of the housing stick out quite far. I didn't want to add the extra spacing, plus i really like how snug the projector sat without the plate on :)

    I know. I never thought about doing them, until you posted that. Now I'm beginning to think about it, but
    this project seems a little costly and complicated at the moment.
