Finished... HID retrofit

Finished my retrofit a couple weeks ago and I couldn't be happier. The light output from the HID's compared to the previous halogens I had is like comparing day and night. The retrofit took me about a week but I was working kind of off and on, taking my time. My E55 bixenon projectors, bulbs, ballasts, ignitors, and shrouds all came from the same auction I found on ebay. Got everything including angel eyes (which I didn't like... PM me if you want em) for $220 shipped. The forum on HIDplanet.com was a lifesaver... there are tons of incredibly helpful threads on that site with anything to do with lighting for cars and motorcycles. But anyway here's some pics on how it turned out... let me know what you guys think, good and bad.

VERY nice job! I have heard that putting those in a bike that they were not ment for can be rewarding because of how much time and patience it takes. Looks like it payed off for you!

Nice job!
Thanks a lot! Minus the tank the entire bike has fiberglass 954 fairings, not really sure how it was done because it was like that when I bought it. You can't tell but my headlight is held on by strategically placed zip ties (probably has something to do with the different front cowl) its actually really secure though. The fairings aren't perfect, but you cant really tell unless you're looking closely.
