    It's not that hard to do if you are a little creative, and have a vision of what you want them to look like. Hardest part is aiming them. when I did mine i got them as close as I could b4 resealing them, then made final adjustments with the stock adjusters because I mounted the projectors to the stock reflector.
    We did a few for some locals (not taco's), and it proved to be pretty labor intensive, and not worth what people were willing to spend to do it. That's why it makes a good DIY project.

    They are so overpriced its not even funny. If you have the ability to do it yourself you can spend no more then $350-$500 depending on what you use. I think I spent $300 on my tl retro.
