Gatling Gun Hid Retrofits complete along with BHLM...looks awesome. Will take pictures in the morning.

Didn't get a chance to retrofit the Blazer Fog Projectors into the housing but looks doable. Scoped it all out and it's easy enough from the looks of things.

Just finished installing my Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III Kit (D2S) from the last group buy...in all honesty if I could do it again I would go with the FXR's...the Mini kit has been more of a pain to get lined up then the FXR's would be in my opinion and probably has more light output.

For anyone getting the Mini's do not expect the alignment to be perfect...the alignment is about 15' off and will require cutting...and if I'm cutting a little I may as well have cut alot. Not very happy...it looks good on the outside but I wanted a quick install not having to fool around.

Here's a pic of the install though...looks good with the BHLM on the 2012's and gatling shrouds!

do you think it would have been easier with the mini gatlings?

The install would be the same...the piece that needs to be cut is at the rear of the housing...either the alignment disc, the plastic housing or the threads...I haven't decided what I want to do yet...kindof busy with Christmas stuff and don't have time to fool around with it atm.

Look at page 8 here:
http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pdf...S_Retrofit.pdf

You can see the adapter plate with the 3 tabs...it has a channel on it that lines up with the threads...the channel is at 0' and should be somewhere between 340-345' position as the light outputs are slanted upwards to the drivers side and taper off down to the passenger side...I may just make a new adapter plate with the channel in the proper position when I get a chance to line it up.

This is kindof the idea...adapter plate on left is what comes with it...the one on the right is probably what it should be...obviously going to have to line it up before knowing exactly.

I see what your saying....

munkeeboi or whatever his name is with the white 2012 didnt seem to have problems, see what he did perhaps?

I'd like to know though, I should be in a 12 soon!

Both munkeeboi and Wizard005 have had the same issue...munkeeboi trimmed it iirc and Wizzard005 glued his. Either way it should be aligned correctly in the first place.
