The shroud is held to the projector housing with a "centric" ring -- basically a friction connection. They supply the ring, which snaps on to the back of the shroud -- then the projector fits snugly through the ring.
The whole projector housing is held to the headlight housing via alignment spacers and special nuts . . . it will all make sense when you see all the parts and start the project -- it's like oh , I see how this is all held together.
Only complaint/issue is that the nut is hard to screw tightly to the back of the projector, b/c of clearance issues and the fact that it is not any standard hex nut .. weird special shape . . .no wrench or socket fits it. you can either hand tighten it or use an adjustable wrench . . but to get a good grip you need to remove the reflector bowl from the rest of the housing, which some do anyway.
