Retrofit Starting Process..

So I have decided that im going to start on my own to retrofit my stock headlights, just due to the fact I dont want to have 3 sets of headlights lol the only problem with my stock headlights are there peeling but shouldnt be a problem il wet sand em and buff it out by hand and clear coat em but other then that id like to know what all I need to retrofit my lights and that includes me wanting ccfls and 8000k hids also and were could I get all of these items.

Thanks

And some tips and tricks would be nice please.

The Retrofit Source is a good place to start. They now have LED halos that are very bright. Way brighter than CCFLs. Also, stick with 4,300k. 8,000k will be such a waste on a retrofit. Besides, you already get color at the cutoff from the projectors.
