since the projectors are mounted onto the reflector, i can still use the factory aiming screws to aim the projectors. it works just like it was before.

yes, i had to take off the reflector to mount the projector. here is a short and brief DIY on how I mounted the projectors; there are alot of steps that i skipped so if there's any questions, feel free to ask me:

Mounted but not aligned


Noticed the red circles; that's where I used 2 bolts to mount the projector


I marked the top of the reflector as the center and where the projector should be pointed; still not yet aligned


The rear of the projector and its markings to align the projector so it would be level and pointed in the right direction


Test fitting the shroud; not yet trimmed


Spacing the lens and testing it out in the basement


Mounted, aligned, and cleaned


Shroud trimmed to fit reflector perfectly

sorry, i didn't take any pics of the back when it was finished, but you wouldn't be able to tell it was retrofitted bec. it looked stock (i was able to use the factory cap).
