I've settled on keeping my partially functional ABL's after I destroyed my OEM headlights.
I no longer have use for my projectors or the new bits that I bought for my planned shroud upgrade.

$110 shipped - Kit w/ either shroud type unless you want both:
===================
$10 NEW Morimoto butyl-based headlamp sealer
$70 Pair of Morimioto Mini D2S 2.0 projectors(I paid $110+shipping)
$20 NEW Pair of Apollo OR E55-R projector shrouds
$10 NEW Morimoto seal splitter tool
^Separates headlight lens from body but also the correct tool for removing body panel clips like the ones on our door panels.

Looking to sell the following lot all at once as shipping some of these individually does not make sense.
$150 shipped - I bought the new pieces from theretrofitsource.com
===================
$20 NEW Pair of projector shrouds(E55 or Apollo) (normally $30)
$30 NEW 3" Q5-R (normally $40)
$75 Pair of igniters with ballasts(all working)
$15 NEW Bosch bulb retainer rings (normally $20)
$10 NEW Morimoto butyl-based headlamp sealer (normally $17)

*Shipping is to the lower 48 states.

Curious what happened to my original headlights?
I was going to strip, prime, and paint the internal bezels on my original headlamps. After that, the plan was to re-do my projectors and sell the ABL units.
I have used CitriStrip on hard plastics before, unfortunately, this time it was a disaster :facepalm:
I let it sit for a few hours. When I came back the internal bezels had partially began to crumble on their own. When I picked them up they started going to pieces in my hands.(1)
I thought about ways to salvage the project but, I have enough on my plate. Since I already have a working set of headlamps, I decided it wasn't worth the effort to source replacement internals. Best to admit defeat.
The only photo I have with them post retrofit. ABL units are on the car now.

Not to jack your thread but I have spare internals if you want to finish the project or someone wants to do this without risking their own headlights.

Do you still have the backing/body with all internal wiring? If so, that could work. I have a spare passenger/right side headlamp so I would only need the left side parts.

I have all of the bulbs, the headlamp glass, and all of the other parts that I listed above. I will PM you.
