Here are the pictures that I promised. Hopefully later down the road I can take some ones that are on a bigger white wall in pitch dark. But for now this is the wall I have to work with.

Nice, you did a real good job making those cutoffs blue. And heck they still are sharp!

I did one on accident, now I see you bent yours a little more, so heck might as well do the other...

Here's a pic the drivers side has a tick of blue:

Sorry, downsized the pics.

Thanks mmarfan. It took me awhile. I just set the head light on top of the engine bay and kept carefully pulling the bulb out and tweaking it with a clothes hanger.

leftyrev, it all has to do with how you want them to look to others. I really wanted the purple look since it's not very common. I am pretty sure you will get a tiny bit better light output from removing the reflector because you are not wasting any light reflecting off that metal piece, it's all going on the road.

Very nice.
According to your jobs, I have to say each person who wants his h1 hid more cute, should do with following:
1, Best use 4100~5000k hid bulb for bright light and max output
2, Removing the metal shield to reduce glare and improve road lighting
3, Bending the cutoff shield correctly to bring more blue and purple upon the line(likes audi or bmw oem hid effect)
