New custom headlights

Hey guys I just built some headlights for my G8. They are quad retrofitted, all four lights come on as low beams and when the high beam is activated it is wired to a trap that drops in the inner projector that allows more light to go out. All four lights are LEDs. Outer shrouds were color matched pearl white to my car (I have custom paint). Let me know your thoughts!

Any light output shots? How are they aligned and what projectors did you use?

Quick FYI, federal law limits vehicles to 4 forward-facing projection lights to be on at a single time. This is why fog lights turn off when high beams are activated. I'm just putting that out there if there ever was an officer that felt like enforcing this upon you.

Pretty cool. Also interested on your choice of projector and output.

I have Xentec HIDs, I like he light output, but I don't have dust covers on the bulb and the headlights are starting to Haze pretty bad.
