Okay so I'm in the process of purchasing a complete Projector kit with angel eye and devil eye all in one deal for 139.99.

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=150901085130

I've read on here about ppl paying to get them retrofitted but never anyone do it them self.

I have the basic idea

Remove the headlights
Bake headlights to pry open the headlights
Mount the projector
Figure out how to wire it lol
Test
Install
Test
Test
Test
And done lol

Anyone have some tips for me? I've read dipping the seal of the headlight in gasoline makes the glue super pliable?

Gasoline might eat the plastic. I would never dip a plastic item in a solvent.

Use the oven bake method. If that doesn't work, cut it open with a dremel.

If you are thinking about doing the retrofit project on oem headlights, they might not be able to be baked to open, because they are permanent sealed, and you might have to cut them. And from what I learn, besides using Morimoto Mini projecter, you might need to cut the original housing in order to install the projecter. Not sure about the projecter you bought from ebay.

Also, you can get lots of tips and helps from theretrofitsource.com

Here are two threads of retrofit project on 2010+ mustang.

Thanks for the links!! And my friend was able to bake open the oem headlights to install his oracle kit so I'm sure that part can be done
