I am glad for the review. This is something that I was wanting to do and was wondering if it would work well. I was going to get a super cheap kit to try out. Scratch that idea.

There are some retrofit projectors shown on this page:

They have a kit on their site for the conversion kits for $225. It might be a little expensive, but it is supposed to be of the highest quality and the pics show a great beam pattern.
