i removed the housing/ mirror assembly, but i did not take the actual mirror out of the housing, see the pics in 1st post, i was able to fish a wire through the assembly with the mirror still installed. then with the mirror moved all the way to one side, i was easily able to clean the back of the mirror and glue the LED strip.

well here is a little experiment so far so good, trying different lighting options, using red LED's. let me know what you think, camera is not that great, it looks brighter than it really is.

ok got them done, 1st video is at night, again camera not that great, the lights look brighter than they really are in the night video. you can tell when you see the tail lights, obviously they are not that bright either.

2nd video is during the day, they look pretty much like the video.



Lupe



ok first pic below is with the LED fished thru the mirror already, i purchase these from autozone. they were the 6 led strip, i cut them to 3. by the way, i'm holding the mirror upside down.

Attachment 177249

here i have the door panel off, u can see the 3 nuts that hold the mirror.

Attachment 177250

below, u can see the hole at the top of the mirror.

Attachment 177251

below, fish 10 gage wire thru bottom toward the top hole in the mirror, i used a small hook, to pull wire out once i saw it

Attachment 177252

below, pull wire with LED attached, i taped them

Attachment 177253

now fish wire down the door, i had the speaker out so i could easily see it, and then tyrap the wire to the existing mirror wire harness

Attachment 177258

below, fish wire thru factory wire loom, you will notice that mine is cut, i had to do this when i installed the vertical doors, so it made it a lot easier for me. now i used the hole from when i remove the original door stopper. if you choose to do this, i'm thinking a small hole will have to be drilled just below the original harness that connect to door because that is an electrical connector.

Attachment 177259

wire is now in the car.


Attachment 177260

below, i put wire in a loom and taped.

Attachment 177261

below, light not on, this is during the day also.

Attachment 177262

this is light on. pretty visible

Attachment 177263

LED mounted to back of mirror,

Attachment 177264

once your get the wires inside, you have 2 choices that i know of, the one i chose was the tap into the front blinker wire, the front bulbs are easy to get to and the blue wire is the hot wire. i already had wire previously run into the car from the engine compartment when i had my dual halos hard wired to a switch inside the car. i now have a wireless remote so the wire were already there for me. you can also run them to the tail lights, i guess this way you would have to pull some interior side panels. im sure there is someone here on the forum who might know what wires to tap into without having to go all the way to the back.

well i just got back from our weekly camaro meet, everybody really digged them, they looked really cool driving at night, when i turned my blinker on,

dont have any pics, from the passenger side i just picked up a existing wires and tyrap to them, then fished them to the driver side. i had previous wires running through the firewall to the engine comparment so i used those to run to the front blinkers. but if didnt have those wires previously run, i would have run the wires to the back tail lights. if i had a wiring diagram i would find the wires in the harness by the door sill and tap into those. maybe someone reading this might be able to tell us.

I am moving to the UK this summer and bringing my 2010 Camaro SS. Does anyone know if this blinker mod to the side mirror will meet the UK "side" blinker requirement? I hate the idea of drilling new holes somewhere on the side of the car to install blinkers.

Now would it be possible to wire the lights to have that soft glow and go with the blinkers? Or is that illegal... I know there are a ton of laws about exterior lights... but i think a soft glow would look awsome.
