Yeah I had an extra set of euro projectors that I did the retrofit on.

Thanks to Randy for the washers - they worked out great.

Basically I "gutted out" the H1 holder and put a washer around the 4 prongs that hold the cap on. The mounting depth worked out to be perfect for the D2S bulbs. The washers were made to be a press fit on both the outer edge and on the bulb. To be safe, I JB Weld'd the washers to the projectors and added some high temp RTV silicone to the base of the bulbs.
