    Im trying to adjust my new projector lights and cant sink them in is there a special order I need to do this in?
    Where should the cutoff be?
    I get it all setup where it needs to be verticle?
    But if i want to move the light to the right it moves it to the light and up more so now my verticle is all off? And I cant adjust it anymore.
    But if I dont touch the horizontal adjustment to much I can adjust it verticle all i want with plent of play?
    Whats my issue?
    I wanna get this done tonight while its still dark.
    Thanks

    i only had to adjust mine vertically? mine kinda kick up on the right side to allow me to see road signs and whatnot. i have the driver side kinda aimed down so as not to blind oncoming traffic.

    If about a truck length away from the wall my "steps" were about 3 feet apart or so. When I backed up from a wall they converged at about 20m-30m or so. It took me a week of driving around to get the vertical adjustment where I wanted it. Just check it out
