Your HID's 8000k but green color? Or is that just the camera used? Or maybe you just picked Green...
8000k should be blue with some white... But on a 55w HID it should be mostly white due to the brightness washing out the color.

Anyway looking forward to seeing some more pics of your build progress! Hopefully you can get all of it done before it gets cold outside.
