hmm the cut off looks normal to me. it's jsut that the light isn't flowing to the right and filling up that cut off.

Im getting them soon. Is there a way to make the cut off shaper. Possibly a washer mod of some sort.

Just for reference, here is a picture of my cutoff beam with the P46s. Taken about 20'-25' from the wall.

My Ride: is dirty
Bend the shield backwards so its flushed with the projector bowl. Dont do a washer mod, the optics are changed to the point of where the light thrown on the ground loses intensity.
