Naveedh - the time will vary with your competence and speed of cutting the headlight frame. Over all I spent 20+ hours for both headlights. But this is because I basically had to undo the retrofit and cut some more because it sat too low the first time. The longest and most tedious step is the rotational alignment.
Solidjake - absolutely. There was a lot of material cut but the frame feels like of a high quality composite witch doesn't seem to break easily. I hope because the projector is solidly epoxied on, it will form past of the structural integrity of the frame. There is still a ridge on the outer lip as well offering extra strength.
The light output is just amazing compared to the stock projectors.!!
