Adjusting Headlights problem

I need some advice.

I know there is a thread for adjusting headlights.
And I know there is a link for me to see how to do it.

Anyways, I just needed to (how-to) know what to look for when adjusting my headlights. I need to see some pictures of how your headlights look like 25ft away or 9ft away from a wall. I am totally confused how to adjust it. Idk no matter how i move those nobs "thingy" it still looks so scattered and all. But i know it did go down.

ANY ADVICE PLEASE?
I am eager to do something about it as I dont want to blind other drivers. So what i did right now was just aim them down. and slightly towards the center but still looks f***ckin bright when driving around.

If you live in Honolulu, Hawaii. Care to help me out? Anyone?

I saw the slim-cubby picture adjusted, but I dont have a slimcubby kit w/ a shield. i bought it from a vendor down here in Hawaii.

It s a hi/low kit 6k if that helps.
I am a visual person so yeah pics would be awesome...

No shield = scatter.

It doesn't matter what adjustments you make.

Thats why running HIDs in a halogen housing is illegal in all 50 states and why you should not do it.

If only the companies who make drop in kits would sell new Xenon reflector bowls... oh well.

^^^ thanks.yah i was wondering if it made a difference because i adjusted mine down and seems like it made a difference when i stand about 30-40ft away from the truck.
not to mention a ton of people on TW and here IN Hawaii run HID w/ some crazy scatter. so idk..hopefully all goes well. thanks again. any input from others will be greatly appreciated

its 12pm here..so ill have to check and make some last minute adjustments before i start my busy week again.

have a good rest of your sunday everyone!
