Default DIY headlight brackets

So I took it upon my self to fab up some brackets too mount two smaller hallogen units per side just like the BSP kits or whatever there called. I made them to still be adjustable and still retractable. Here are some pics made in cardboard.. LMK what you guys think? Sorry about the poor picture quality..

Wow. That looks good. I've looking for something very similar. I have a set of projector headlights I've disassembled for a while now. Keep up the good work.
