Dude I have the FX projectors with clear len and cutoff shield mod, but my shroud is very big. I couldn't put the headlight cover back on lol. Where did you buy the projector I might have to ask them about the shroud. Thank You.

I can't imagine any shroud being bigger than the LS430 shroud. With lots of trimming, I was able to fit it inside the headlight and still have enough space for adjustment. You might have to trim the shroud quite a bit then to make it fit also. Or push the projector a little bit further back to give you more space to fit the shroud. Pictures would help.

i added black RTV silicon around the headlight to seal it. been through several car washes and no fogging. best to use additional sealant.

Well, after 1.5 years with this retro, I was getting kinda bored with it...so I bought some 55watts ballasts from DDM for a change. Installed them yesterday but have been lazy to go take any pics. First impression was...damn, what happened to that nice white light? The output color is now a bit yellow but more intense. I'm using the DDM ballasts w/ OE philips 4100K bulbs. I will try to take some pics of before and after to show the difference......
