^^ yep. I tried my own and failed. Lesson learned. They are now in the hands of the professionals. It's worth the money to me knowing they will be done right this time

I'm pretty happy with the ones I did as far as execution - but I got what I paid for in the parts dept.
I'll be ordering up some new head lights w/ complete retrofit in the not too distant future.

My projectors looked half decent. They just needed a little work on the alignment. The bhlm is what looked like ass

Alignment worked out great because of the style of projector.
I used spray on bedliner for mine..Came out pretty nice.

But the projector/shroud parts were kinda cheap and just don't feel real solid. I think one of the lenses might be slightly misaligned...Hence looking at getting new ones.

I just finished mine a week or so ago, it can be a lot of work but there are also a lot of threads to help you along the way. Did you do a BHLM ? If you can do that you can do HID retrofit. I am super anul so mine was a pain and took a week or two to finish.It was nice that I had second set to build them out of.
