Default Lo-Pro headlight question

Total shot in the dark here, but has anyone found a way to make the Moss Lo-Pro headlight kit NOT slam shut? The factory barn doors are so smooth to open and close, but the moss ones really slam. Anyone ever figure this out or even think about it?

i know they use a shorter lever to push it open. i think if you could find a way to slow the motor down, it would be smoother.

That's kind of what I had in mind, but I have absolutely no idea how to slow a motor. I only know enough about electronics to be dangerous.

This used to bother me, but think I stopped noticing it so much, that is, until I read this thread. I might have to look in to a solution now.

I only track the car in the daytime and the stockers are really bright with a good light pattern if I happen to go somewhere at night. I'm a practical function over form guy though. I would think a resistor would slow them, but I'm no electrical wizard. I studied psychology.
