The chrome bars must be cut out because they interfere with the light beam. This will leave discolored areas where there is no chrome and should be painted.

Other than that any projector will work but the h1s and d2s require the least modification to the housing and slip into the old bulb hole and are secured with a large nut.

Theretrofitsource.com is where most of us have been shopping. They seem to have the best quality harnesses and a huge selection of projectors and shrouds.

They also have a forum at hidplanet.com that will help you select a projector by what beam pattern you want.

Figure on spending 350ish dollars if you get everything from them. Bulbs ballasts shrouds harness and projectors. And you will need some clamps. To put it all back together. I do recommend getting some butyl sealant rope from them. maybe 10 dollars. To help reseal it.

There are plenty of write ups on how to go about moding these housing with tons of pics in this forum.
