@Luke111 i am getting ready to finish up this mod how did you mount the mesh? I assume from the outside of the plastic brackets for the screws? And you added a rubber addition to the outer part of the mesh?
Drilled holes through the tabs and bolted it to the frame and the flat steel support.... the key was epoxying the flat steel to the frame which gave the frame a strong base for attachment. I did not attach rubber to the mesh....i did lightly scratch the inside of the frame installing the mesh so I taped of the face of the frame and painted the inside of the frame the same color as the mesh...

I recently bought another set of Depos to Retrofit... my current set of Depos are running a Mini H1 and a Halogen high beam. The new lights will have a D2S in the low beam side and a micro projector in the high beam side. The micro will be wired as a DRL and even though it’s Bi-xenon the D2S is all thats needed as a high beam.
I’ll probably paint the frame, reflector and shrouds as soon as I figure out which shroud to use...
I’m going to test fit and adjust them this weekend as I know some have had issues with the D2S touching the glass but illuminating the thick rubber washer and replacing it with a washer made of shrink wrap I think I’ll be ok
The reflector requires some trimming for clearance of the ring that tightens the projector to the reflector
Was able to remove all the excess sealant from the glass and the housing tracks which makes test fitting for clearance a none issue

Here two examples of shrouds I’m considering
