Default quick question about flip up headlight buckets (hid retrofit incoming)

Does anyone know the maximum depth of a headlight that still allows the bucket to retail its up/down functionality? Has anyone ever actually checked? Gonna do a true hid projector retrofit and just looking for more details. I will make a sererate thread for the build, but this is just my pre build info thread.

Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

He nearly got to the group buy-in stage 2 years ago, I'll see if I can find the thread on it.

People don't believe me when I tell 'em it's already been done or at least tried by someone on Sixthsphere but it's true...

Here's one, not the one shown above though: http://www.sixthsphere.com/forum/sho...r-hint-hint%29

sort of what i wanted to do, but im using a single, bi-xenon projector. i.e. a single projector that retains high/lo capability. i know its been done before, thats why ive been looking for information.

a lot of the designs i see though use sleepy eye headlights and i want to retain full flip up capability without making some ridiculous bracket that looks bad. hence the use of a aftermarket housing. from my initial measurements, the housing will be extended by about an inch on the back. does anyone know how much free space is on the back of the stock housings?
