Projector Retrofit

Hi Guys

I did a search and I don't believe it but nothing really grabbed my attention.

Anyway,

who did you guys get to retrofit projectors for you?
-do i need to get the projectors on my own?
-do shops do em?

I have an 03 accord coupe

Thanks

other forums might have guides. do a google search. i know VCC will have one or two topics on retrofitting.

those who've done retrofitting will have done themselves or friends have done for them. shops won't because it's illegal to alter your headlights. and yes you have to get your own projectors
