Lol actually quite easy man. I decided to try a new product this time and as you can see it is amazzzinggggg. I simply covered my electronics and battery with foil to keep them from getting wet, then I just lightly rinsed the rest of the bay with the hose. If you have grime and buildup use an engine bay cleaner. DO NOT USE SIMPLE GREEN, it is corrosive to the aluminum. Then let it dry for a minimum of 1 hour. Then you use the product which is SONUS Trim and motor kote. As you can see it turns out awesome(=

You do not need a can bus harness.

The MH1 projectors uses H1 bulbs.

35 watt. MH1 projectors are to small for 55 watts. 55 watts will ruin the chrome coating on the projector bowls after time. TRS does not recommend 55 watts in the MH1s because of this.

I would just do the stage 3 kit with the projectors. Might as will buy it all and do it right the first time.

I want to see what the projector looks like in the stock housing but I can't find a thread or pics of Focuses with it installed
