Who has done a projector headlight retrofit?

Who all out there has done this before? I've only seen one other person (chid, I believe). Since I just ordered a custom Moriomoto H1 single projector setup for my Versys today, I'd like to see some pics of other installs. I'm planning on painting the low beam reflector satin black and using the GTI-R shroud. We'll see how it turns out.

I really just wanted to see some pics if anyone else has done an install. If they've painted the reflector bowl and used a different shroud, that would be a plus. As far as I know, you're the only one who's taken the plunge on a 1st gen.

Well, started my retrofit today. I'll post a write-up when I get it finished. For now, a little teaser...

looks good, I hope you have space inside headlight.
I got minis, and I was at the limit (on the bottom, if I remember well..)
you will enjoy the added light..

It's going well so far. All I'm waiting for now is for TRS to send me a new shroud (chrome rubbed off), new high beam splitter, and new harness (H7 connectors were supposed to be H4). I think lens clearance will be a bit tight, but it should be okay. The GTI-R shroud sits over the projector a decent amount more than the mini Gatling. I just hope the shroud is deep enough to where you cannot see behind it from the side.

Removed it as getting replacement bulb was a problem. Now running with HID which is the same but simple and bulb replacement is easy.
