    Hey guys, I've just ordered my FX-R projectors and everything from TheRetrofitSource and have a question. How does everyone go about aiming the projectors in the reflectors? Do you put them whole thing back into the headlight and put them on the truck and adjust them while on the truck? Or are ya'll putting just the reflector with the projector in it on a level table and aiming at a wall? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to start on my retrofit on Monday and can't wait to see how it turns out!

    Edit: Well Yosh answered my question in another thread. I'll be sure and post pics here once my retro is done.

    Mount your lights in a jig and shine on wall. Mark factory cut off on wall. Remove lights and install projector loosely. Install lights back into jig. Adjust so cutoff is about where factory cutoff was. Affix lights in that location of the housing. Fine tune once on vehicle. At least they will be close and level.
