I kinda want to get different shrouds as well, would the MC-R fit?

^^Also with those shrouds will you still get the halo (dots) around the projector lamp or do you have to pay more for that option?
I think you would have to get the Morimoto CCFL kit. Is that built in or is it something that requires extra wiring?

This is what the cart looks like so far... Am I doing it right?

I dont have experience with the xb35 bulbs but they are supposed to be brighter so if thats what you want go ahead and get them. Here is what your cart should look like and I included the resealing glue as I would recommend getting unless your going to use something else, I also included two different versions of the cart one with ccfl and one with the XBled halos (XBled halos will be brighter and less wiring, both do require extra wiring also) & (you might want to email the retrofit source if you want to reproduce the light behind the shrouds cause the ones I got with my projectors were smaller and ment to be on the outside so you may need larger ones which in that case you would need to add the larger halos to your order seperately and not order them with the projectors)
