    Awesome video! Can't wait to see the time lapse

    Nice. I really like the stud/nut method. Does that allow for rotational adjustment too before you lock it down?
    What some people do is cut slots for the screws to allow rotational adjustment. Just leave 1 hole to have a pivot.
    What I did was back my projectors against the reflector and tightened the nuts enough to be secure but loose enough to let me make quick adjustments before I jb welded it in place. Luckily I was able to eyeball the mounting to get it close enough that I didn't need to cut slots

      Cool, that makes sense. Thank you. That's nearly exactly what I did mounting a set of MH1s in my Spyder headlights (with their projector brackets and my adapters).

        I am so in for a time lapse video. After watching the initial video in the thread, the nut and bolt sounds like the direction I want to go. This will be my first retrofit ever, so I would kill to see this time lapse!

          What is the black stuff you use to cover the holes you drill for the bolts?

              Did the in-depth video ever get made for the nut-and-bolt method? I'd love to see that before I tackle my first retrofit within the next month or so.

                I'm getting ready to do this on my silverado classic with the mh1 7.0s, but I can't find anywhere on how you measure or determine where to drill the holes for the screws. Can you shed a little more insight on this?
