What is the cut off actuator wires? I'm confused.PM a pic or something.I followed you up until that point.Andrew told me the splitters he's sending me would connect to the OEM power wire on the high beam wires and then I would connect to the power wire on the projector. Educate me some more,because Im missing something here or are we are talking about the same thing?
The red and black wire coming out the back of the projectors controls the actuator that drops the cutoff shield that turns your projectors into high beams. I'm sure this is the harness they are sending you.
you plug the end on the far left into your high beam plug on the OEM harness. Then you plug the other end into the OEM high beam bulb, and connect the other wires to the High Beam switch on the projectors. But, what you are going to do since you are using two projectors, is splice into the wire that connects to your low beam projector and wire it into the cutoff actuator on the high beam one as well, so they both will activate.

PM me for Overlay or Projector Retrofits
Okay that makes sense so when i turn my high beams on all four will go high and when im just using low beams all four will be low. Im using ballast for my high beams with their bulbs. Okay so Im going to splice into the power wire on my low beam projector.I believe I understand you now. Gluys is going all four on low beams which is pretty simple,but I still want high beam capability.
you are partially right. When you go low, only the one low beam projector will be on. the one in the high beam spot will not be on during low beam application. using all four lights for the low beam isn't going to increase the light output for you, but it will blind others who are coming towards you.
The way andrew from the retro told me to wire it all for were going to be low and then when I hit the switch all four high. That's not good.I'm going with your suggestion. BTW we were both talking about the same thing earlier with the splitter except andrews way was taking it to the actuator wire on all four projectors.
I'm sealing the lights right now. Unfortunately Anson I missed the will call pick up for your white LED, so I'll have to pick them up in the morning. I should be able to ship these out either tomorrow or tuesday
