some guys on hidplanet thought the SC projectors looked a lot like the TSX ones and were the same as the non-HD projector in another car (will have to dig around for which Acura/Honda model they referred to). Would love for it to be just a simple swap. I'd rather than get a spare set of lights mostly due to the cost but it might be an option to do that and then retrofit the 2nd set and sell them too.

Just thought I'd chime in with my project. I'm following Bright Light Tech's fabulous idea of making mdf brackets. Ive retro fitted a few different lights and hate dremeling the reflector buckets so just taking them out seems like a better option.

Things I already have:
FXR
Morimoto 35w ballasts
Morimoto 5k D2S bulbs
Possibly a useable wiring harness

Things I need:
Shroud
Possibly a wiring harness
Spare set of headlights for inspection purposes

Cant wait to start but I need some warmer weather

You definitely need a wiring harness, should pick the Bi-Xenon Gold MotoControl wiring harness from TRS...

Good Luck with the Project, you'll love the FX-R...

I've watched a few videos on the web, but it would be great if you could detail your build. I've cleared my lights, so cracking open the housing doesn't make me sweat. Trimming plastic, aligning the lamp and using hot glue as a method to secure it all seems difficult and fraught with potential for trashing things!
