Maybe it's just me but it is a bit hard to see what the effect is your going for.

What he said.

Those are the same lights anyway...

Influenced from 1991-96 vette lamps.

The question isn't whether we want them, although I voted affirmatively. We all wanted this afterburner effect months ago, and GM did what it could to deliver everything we wanted in an affordable package. As we all know, the current tail lights look a little different. The question becomes a matter of how we produce these lights. The obvious answer is that there is some sort of bulb with highly reflective material in a casing with a barrier that covers all of the light except the outside and bottom walls of the light.

So far, no one has been advertising that these lights will be available for the masses. I'd like to see a price tag because the lights would have to obey the law, meaning that they cannot be too bright, ruling out HIDs. LEDs would require several bulbs to produce the light necessary to go around a barrier. This consideration must be supplemented by the fact that the reflective casing must be red in order to avoid that cheap Altezza look, meaning that the bulbs have to be even brighter, meaning more LEDs.

In conclusion, I'd like to see these on a Camaro, but I'd also like to avoid being pulled over for dull bulbs. We already know that most of Camaro5 wants these, but what cost are we willing to pay?

2SSRS@Gen5diy 07-31-2009 09:10 PM

I was thinking of making a set, And yes Red LED's

John Farnen 07-31-2009 09:32 PM

I'd like to see the tailpipe rings along w/the tail lites.

GMtothecore 07-31-2009 09:34 PM

Awesome tail lights...

While we are at it, I'll take the concept's rear bumper as well. Looks much cleaner than the production car's. The face is flatter and does not have the bottom lip above the black area. To me, it just looks nicer.

The concept lights have a perception of more 'depth'. I think it gives the rear end much more of a 'personality'. You can see the car's soul clearer :D

Abso-freekin-lutely!! I love the look of those lights! :thumbup:

How about putting those on the 2011 model SS models GM?? ;)

KIMBERSSGIRL1 08-01-2009 09:19 AM

If it could be done we would be in line for some, They look killer and maybe eliminate the chrome bezels around them all together!

I already bought the Blacked out LED Tails for our Monte Carlo SS that were around $260 at the time and would be willing to shell out even more bucks for ones like that for the Camaro anytime!
Heck were spending $30,000+/- for the car,A few hundred + or more for tails won't be a huge issue if there quality and done right.
Heck people are spending $300 bucks just for some vinal Rally stripes! lol


Ditto on the Concept's casting Exhaust ports! Something like those around the exhaust for now till something better comes along would be great.
Should have come stock like that on cars without Ground Effects.

Just not some thin piece of stainless or piece of colored vinal would look kind of cheap.

Blakout 08-01-2009 02:41 PM

IMO let's see some of the businesses on this site comment on this and see if we can get them to make those taillights! :)

infamous00827 08-22-2009 04:52 AM

do you think the guys at aacstyle would be able to make these?

Doc 08-22-2009 10:11 AM

What you need more than anything else is the eclipse effect of a dark shape over the light source center. The afterburner effect is like a solar eclipse. A black round or tail light lens shape in front of the bulb would probably be pretty close to the concept car effect. It's indirect lighting showing around the dark center. Whether that would be legal or not is another issue. It might not be bright enough.

Or the other more important issue is it might be so good looking that drivers would be distracted by looking at the "cool effect" and slam into the back of you (or somebody in the lane next to you) because they forgot they were looking at brake lights instead of special effects. I'd be more concerned over that actually than anything else.

2SSRS@Gen5diy 08-22-2009 11:14 AM

I have been working on how to make it yourself and now have the LEDs that i need for the job.

Stay tuned to this same bat Chanel.

GJG 08-22-2009 11:19 AM

i'd be happy if i could get some REAL Black Chrome tail light bezels

Spaceballone 08-22-2009 12:18 PM

ask
 
anyone know anyone at GM that could give us some insight as to how this was done. The Doc has pointed out how it can be done but just to speed up the process it would help if we could get some tips. I also agree these will deff has to be legal, no dimness! I want them to blind people behind like a BMW/ Benz

Hear is a tail light opened up to show the 3 parts.
#1 the red lens.
#2 the inner light Diffuser.
#3 the shell.

And you will see a LED strip that will do a good job for the light, I need to get some plastic to mount the leds on l And i was thinking to make the blacked out pat the brake/blinker light.

What do you think.

Mindz 08-22-2009 04:33 PM

I think the blacked out part being the blinker would be interesting. Not sure if I like it or don't like it without actually seeing it, but it's definitely worth a shot!

2SSRS@Gen5diy 08-22-2009 05:12 PM

May be by the time i am done the outside will be the blinker and the inner will be the brakes.

Dos any one remember how it was on the concept if you do send me a P.M.

I think your headed in the right direction. My only concern is the directional nature of those surface mount leds. If the leds were pointing towards the back of the car you'd have it all. Super high brightness Luxeon leds may do the trick. They are really small, but ridiculously bright. Some of these around the inside perimeter facing back, and then using a blocking plate of some kind like you said may work really well. This link has a red-orange luxeon that may give the "afterburn" look we all seem to like. Damn I wish I had my 2SS!
