    Zoom in to see it. I just used the stock bolts and the nuts on the back of the horns, I made three brackets which I cut/drilled. One bracket goes at the stock mounting spot, the second bracket connects the two horns to make sure they have even space/height. For the third bracket I bent it at the end in a way so it would sit flush with the rad bracket.

    That is great work. Thank you so much for the pic. And since this thread was originally about your retrofit, congrats on that. They look absolutely amazing!

    No point unless I designed my own parts/headlight. Retrofitting has been out for a looooong time. Anyone can do it :shrug:

    Where are you located? If you are somewhere close to PA I'd be willing to make the drive and help you out

    Hey man, first just wanna say thanks for this writeup! I have a 15 coupe as well and while the sedan DIY was nice, I was still nervous about going ahead with this.

    Quick question though, for anyone who knows. I really don't want to paint my housing but i'm wondering if the reflective housing will cause problems with the cutoff line even with a projector?

    it won't. You can leave the oem chrome housing unpainted and it won't cause any issue with cutoff or performance

    if you send him a pm ^ with that link it should send him an email to give him notice you're looking to see if he has his pics.
