Adjusting the Eagle Eyes

Was curious if any of the owners of the Eagle Eyes projectors from Sabersport ever tried to adjust them? I have never really looked at trying to adjust them, but I think mine could go for some adjusting. This is the first set of projectors I have had, so I don't really know how they should be. I was looking at my friend's projectors the other day, and up against a wall, his lights appear like a straight line on the wall. When mine are pointed at a wall, they are "jagged" shaped and don't have that straight line appearance.

when you align them, there should be a 'stepping' line. From left to right, with two step ups.

Hmm, not exactly sure what ya mean, but I will try and show you what I am talking about. I did a rough sketch in paint to try and show what I am talking about.



Basically, what you are seeing is how our headlights project against the wall. Mine are all funky shaped, about exactly how I drew them. My friends project straight across the wall at the top, then are rounded at the bottom.

Ok, I understand what he is talking about now, and I believe my friends are actually like that and not an exact straight line. Mine are DEFINITELY not like that though. I will try and get that pic up soon. Sun is still up over here.

it is most likely the quality of the projectors...if yours look all odd shaped as u say then u most likely wont be able to do anything to make them look better..u will only be able to move them up and down .

Wasn't able to find our digital camera here at work, but took a pic with my phone.



Ok, I took the picture from my view sitting behind the wheel. The truck is about 15 feet away from the wall. The closer I get to the wall, the more distorted they become, and take the shape of my paint picture.
