Looks good!! The retro is one of the best mods I have done to my truck as well. I would've blacked out the bottom reflector though if it was me, just my $0.02

I did the work myself, took 2 days building the lights. The worst part was getting the old glue out of the channels after they were apart as ford uses that permaseal crap. I resealed them with the butyl glue so i can get them back apart easier.

Search for mts678's thread in the 6.4 electronics section, he has a very detailed write up as to what is involved. There are a few members who have done them (Higgins, TonyGT and MTS678) including myself. If you have some questions im sure you can pm us if you would like.

I might have to look into doing this myself one day. I was recently quoted ~$1400 for a pretty basic projector swap/build and I about sh!t a chicken. Those came out good.

It is a lot of work, i had two full days to get the lights where they were reassambled and sitting on the counter. I then still needed to mount ballast, wiring etc.
