Your best bet is to buy a separate set of headlights, preferably clear aftermarket like TYC.
That way you can work at it and take your time. Retrofitting is a long process, and its not wise to rush.

It took me over a month to finish mine how I wanted. What exactly do you need help with? I can try to explain how I did mine. Did you purchase your projectors already? What have you looked at for lighting? There is a lot of options for projectors and shrouds.

My headlights are Nissan Murano projectors, they are a bixenon so I have the high/low beam.

Yes you have to play around with it to get them to aim straight. Don't glue your projectors in until everything is lined up perfect. You have to do a lot of test fitting.

I just used a flat piece of plastic and made it flush with the projector. I didn't buy no shrouds.

Yes I did the fog lights as well.

Did you open up your headlights for the retro fit?
