Did you remove your factory grill in order to put on the T-Rex Grills? Or did you just put the T-Rex grill over the factory one?

No removal of the factory grill. It bolts on to the factory grill. So....if you want to remove it and have the factory look again....super easy!

Thanks, man! I never planned on changing up my lighting....but that might end up being my next cosmetic mod.

Not sure if MJ, WMJ, and I are making it yet, haha . Still have to get some things sorted out and I'll know later in the week. Is there a thread page??

I'm doing something with my lighting....out of necessity, haha. Not really funny...but my driver's side headlight unit has condesationa and water in it and it's ruined. Not sure what I'm going to do about it yet. I have 53k on the car but it's not even two years old...so I'm waiting on the dealer to see what they say. They said they needed to "contact GM" to see if they could replace it. It's been over two weeks and I've heard nothing. Will probably call tomorrow. If they won't replace it I'm wanting to know all of the best options.

I will probably start a thread about it in the Cosmetic/lighting section just to get everyone's knowledge on what the best route to take would be. You have any suggestions?? Haha.

I know the RS headlight replacement is expensive...and I'd like to have different colored halos and DRL halos. So I'm wondering what my cheapest...easiest route would be. I'm thinking about replacing both RS headlights to non-RS headlights with dual color halos and matching DRL (one color anyway) halos. I don't necessarily need the HID's.

Anyway, hope all is going well with you. Bee doing well?

Thats effing crazy....sounds like your stealership justs wants to make you buy another headlight

I guess you're options other than your dealer doing the replacement of the headlight for free.. would i guess be:
1.Find a RS drivers side replacement on ebay
2.Find a Non-RS headlight
3.Im sure theres more to these options, i had a few more before sitting down and writing this

Shes doing great though! Those headers are worth the money

Hope to see y'all this weekend

Primer first. Then white paint. Then gloss clear!

Thank you kind sir!!

I've been having problems with my lighting (water in one of my headlights) so I'm hoping that in getting it fixed it spurs me to get some new matching halos and DRL halos!! I'm hoping...anyway!!

Got this coming!!



Finally decided to add to the lighting a bit....mostly out of necessity of having to buy a new front RS headlight. I decided while the bumper was off to go ahead and get some colorshift halos in there. Would also like to have DRL halos but I hear JDP is working on them so possibly at the beginning of next year I'll look into those more.

Now....for the installation

Got one JDP colorshift LED in today. The driver side headlight is done (well everything but putting in the new 8000k HID bulb). Hopefully have everything done next Saturday.

So I finally got rid of that nasty, water filled headlight and updated my lighting a bit. Finished it myself today. It wasn't terrible but it took quite a bit of work (for me anyway). I love it so far! Looks tons better in person. The pics don't do it much justice. Now all I have to do is install my Flashtech colorshift halo fogs!

I was never going to do much with lighting. It wasn't that I didn't like the options but that I was happy with the RS HID's/halos. But out of necessity (the first pic below) I needed to put in a whole new light anyway. I figured while the bumper was off I might as well add some colorshift. I also changed the HID's to 8000k bulbs. I like the way they look a lot. Maybe a little bluer tint but I really haven't compared them to the stock bulbs yet. I'll get better pics of my halos soon, but I had to get a couple right after I finished install.

I also spruced up my upper and lower grilles to make them new looking again without using Adam's products. The finish on them turned gray and chalky looking (probably used too much car wash chemicals/soap on them ) so I would use Adam's In and Out spray weekly to keep them looking new but it would wash off when I washed the car or if it rained. Looks new again (without Adam's)!! Although, I am going to do a bit more on the lower grille. Not a hard thing to do though...especially with the front bumper off.
