First paragraph on the first page of this guide I discuss adjustments
You have to bolt them into your truck before you seal them ...find a level area and a wall. Turn them on and make your adjustments. They should look like the picture below.

@Luke111 If you will recall our phone conversation about hooking up the harnesses, relays and ballasts, we visited about the idea of applying Dielectric Grease to all the fittings.

I did contact TRS and spoke with Neil there, I asked if there was any reason "not to" use Dielectric grease and the response I received was: "Dielectric grease is a great idea in any of the connectors to ensure moisture does not find its way into the connections!".

It may be worth adding to the main instruction page for people who want to minimize the chances of moisture causing issues.

I plan on making revisions to the install guide.. making it easier to follow and add content based on suggestions but I need your help to keep the install guide as clean as possible. Could you please delete your current comments and photos so there are no gaps in the guide. PM anything you’d like to see added. This may take a week but once it’s completed it should be easier to follow.. Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers

@Luke111 could you comment on the output difference between the Mini H1 and your DS2 setup? Any pics? Your site says "Madskills required" Is that wiring or fab work? I've never done projectors before, but do a lot of mods/machining/wrenching on the beast and other stuff.

How are you guys looping the relay wire in the front away from the front radiator without interfering with the hood? Could you show some pictures? Thanks much!

@Luke111 I did the tsx projector swap before i found out about your bracket but I think I would like to upgrade to the morimoto projector with your bracket and the d2s i have installed currently. I saw on your website you were cautious about the difficulty of the d2s retrofit. What is the difference from the h1 install? Also, is the adapter plate your making 95 for one, or a pair?

$95 is for the pair. For detailed Q & A give me a call 703-371-8494. Trying to keep the install guide as clean as possible

Finally got mine installed with a late Sunday night conversation with Lou. Thanks again, Lou. Who would have thought that the hardest part of the whole process would have been releasing the clip on the corner lights.

Yes, thanks for all of your help Lou. The lights look great. One slight mod was to add and adjusting nut to the low beam adjuster. I did this by taking one of those .5 to .75 inch long nuts and cut a slot with my dremel to allow the blade sticking out the back to be JB Welded on the adjuster. With a wrench I can turn the nut clockwise to lower or counter clockwise to raise.

That is an excellent idea! I will do the same.
