Anyone know if I can use the lens from a stock halogen headlight on the stock hid headlights or are they different?

Tough to just send you, because it depends on the depth you mounted the projectors at to be perfect.

Use some aluminum flashing and you'll be all set.

I was being a little facetious. Lol. Just something else I wasn't planning in doing but will do it. Ready to put this project in the books. Still debating wether I should tint my side marker or leave it stock to break up the all black.

Theelre is no "minimum" with a fog light retro.

You've really got one option, the matchbox.
