retrofit services???

Does anyone here know a reputable shop in Lower Mainland who you would trust to do a retrofit projector swap?

I wanna put a F50 Q45 Projector into a 02' Lexus GS

and no I don't wanna do it myself, I don't have the time or patience or run the risk of screwing it up LOL

That would be quite hard coz every unit is a one-off. If you can't find a projector type headlight on ebay chances are you are on your own. Coz I don't see it as a viable business model to "custom" people's headlights one by one...

There are more than a few companies and shops that do this, however, the majority of them are in the US. http://lightwerkz.net/ does a lot of great work.

I remember someone mentioning on here that AK Autoworks did a retrofit on his EL. No idea on the quality though.

I'm not looking to get any cheap eBay headlights that fog up after 6 months. There are a ton a shops in the US who will custom retrofit any projector to many different types of headlights. But I wanna avoid the shipping. Mind you, I'll be supplying all the parts, I just need some one to put it all together
