This was a really bad move. Keeping the DIY up would've gained you some publicity and engendered goodwill while allowing people who aren't in your area to do this themselves. While leaving the DIY up might have caused some local people who might've otherwise become your paying customers to do it themselves, a lot of people might've seen the DIY and decided to just go to you to get it done. There's all kinds of instructions online for doing oil changes, but people still frequently like to just get it done by the dealer/someone else. The same would hold doubly true for headlight mods.

This move was just in such poor taste, particularly after this community helped you refine your design (LuceProdukt).
Thanks for the criticism. I'm putting the DIY back up when I have time to re upload all images.
