Step #5 - Drill New Mounting Holes
--------------------
- Now take the Audi Projector and remove the reflector housing from the whole unit and also
  remove the cut off shield, D2S bulb and place everything in a safe place!
- Now on the backside of the reflector housing, using your drill and a 1/4" bit, drill the existing
  4 holes where the reflector and the lense bracket were held on. Go slow, and be very careful because
  the reflector housing is very fragile so we don't want to crack or break it!



This next steps are kinda tricky and I really don't know how better to explain it but you just
have to use your best judgement.


- Place the reflector housing against the back of the bracket and use your sharpie and mark the 4
  mounting holes on the bracket with the 4 holes you drilled on the reflector. Remember, the cut-off
  shield on the reflector should be on the bottom, and the green level on the bracket should be upright.
- Cut 8 one inch sections of the R/C Exhaust piping.
- Now place your long bolts into the holes of the reflector housing going from the front of the reflector
  to the back where the opening of the bolts should be on the back of the reflector and the head is on
  the front.
- Place each one inch section of R/C piping on the bolts.



- Now place the bolts against the front of the bracket and mark the holes where you need to drill.
- Use the notch that you cut out earlier as a guide to where the first hole will go, as for the rest
  just play around with it to make sure that the reflector is going to be horizontally and vertically
  straight on the mounting bracket.
- Now that you have your mounting spots, carefully drill holes into the bracket.
- Once your holes are drilled put the bolts through the bracket, you'll want the One inch R/C piping
  to be flush with the bracket, but you'll notice that at first the piping won't hit the bracket because the reflector
  will not fit into the bracke. You must use your dremel and sanding drum to widen up the opening so that the
  R/C section will be flush.
- Once everything is lined up and the projector sits snug inside the bracket reattach your HID unit (lense/bracket)
  and tighten everything up snug, don't overtighten because you could break something!

  Note: Use your washers to make the top and bottom mounting spots level with each other, and remember
  
when widening the opening for the reflector to sit in, be very careful so you don't mess up the
  mounting holes!

  Note:
The One inch piping will allow the projector to stick a little further out than the stock projector.
  It is okay to have the HID Projector stick about 1/4 - 1/2" forward because it will allow as much light
  to escape the housing as possible.

  Note: If your bolts are hanging too much off the back of the reflector, simply cut them to the distance shown in the
  pictures below.

  Note: It is very crucial that the projector is horizontally and vertically straight or you'll have a cockeyed system.

  Note:
It is also very important to clean the lense and reflector housing before you attach everything, this
  ensures the best available light output.
