I guess all these mods belong in this forum.

I had some time to throw some more of my mods on the vert. I installed my LED daytime running lights, front, rear, mailslot black outs and my favorite and easiest mod yet i wired my halos to my DRL. Installing the LED and wiring them was stupid easy and all the vinyl stuff was pretty easy also. I have never done any vyvil before so I was pretty nervous, but it all went on pretty good. I had a lot of bubbles to get rid of and I got all the big ones but gave up on the little ones. Luckily most if not all of the little ones disappeared on their own. The vinyl kit was VERY well made but I do wish the front black out was a little bit longer. I put it as far back as possible because I didn't want that sliver of IOM showing between the black out and the grill. The black out could be about an 1/8" longer but then again it might start to peel easier if the vinyl came right up to the bumper edge. It looks great the way it is so I'm happy. I encourage anyone to not be afraid to try this out!

Still have to paint my tail light bezels flat black and smoke my tail lights, reverse lights and side markers. I'm also going to paint the chrome part of my bow ties IOM and put the flat black vinyl bow ties that came with the kit over the gold part. I have to figure out where to put the center cap bow ties that came with the kit, since I won't be running these wheels for long.

Here is the DIY thread for wiring the halos to the DRL.

I don't like parking on the street so when I do I have my passenger get out and guide me as close to the curb as possible.

Where did you get the vinyls from? I want the front blackout!

Love the new vert, and the plate tells it all. :w00t:

Did you put a diode in between the halos and DRLs? Otherwise wouldn't your DRLs be on with your parking lights as well?

What about unplugging those DRLs at the bulb? Would the Halos still work like them? This is what I really want to do and eliminate the DRLs.

I'll have to check when I get home, I'm at the track right now, but it was a steal! I think it was $98 for the whole kit. Out included the front, back, mail slot, front/rear bowties and bowties for the center caps.

No, if I put a diode then it would only work one way and I wanted it to work both ways.

Yes, that will do exactly what you want.

Sorry, they are not a sponsor on here, that is why I keep it to PMs.

I don't have them installed yet, but I bought them from revomotors, who is a sponsor on here with a GREAT price and a Coupon Code listed here: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...on+motorsports

The kit's I bought were Most Blackout and Bowties. Good Luck!

That's an awesome price! Wish I had seen that before, I would much rather support a sponsor.
