I've been running this setup for 3 years without any problems.
The film is slightly sandblasted now, soon to be replaced.
James, get one sheet from Griots (~$23), cut it along in two strips ~12cm wide
ea. Perfect for our narrow-eyed 200's.

In each headlight I have one H4 (80w/100w) and one H3 (100w) projector where in
the DOT headlight there would be a dim directional marker.
