Exactly. I've been in touch with him and requested a matching harness for the rear lights... he's interested in doing one so that both sets of side markers function as turn signals. He doesn't live too far from me, so I may swing by to get more info since that mod is on my "to do" list.

Damn man, veryyyyy classy build. I was drooling at the quad exhaust you had done. That looks absolutely amazing, and you can't get any more aggressive looking than that.

Thanks man, means a lot coming from you!! Still a work in progress, getting some more stuff for x mas.

I love the exhaust too, I thought quad 4" tips might be silly, but they look good on the car, seeing as how a lot of things on the car are big.

Cant wait to finish it up with a ZL1 rear diffuser.

Got a good bit of stuff for christmas! Installed the CAI so far, and it sounds amazing, cant believe how much better it made the exhaust sound, even in AFM mode.

Ill post pics when I get the stuff on, but I got:

DRL harness (Gen5diy)
LED DRLs
ZL1 Grille
CAI from Cold Air Inductions (powdercoated black)
SLP Fade to black gill inserts
AAC LED dome and trunk lights
GM Premium floormats with the red piping and reddish "Camaro" logo lol.

I put the cai on, and when I get time Im gonna pop the bumper off, change the grille, re-do the plasti dip on the bottom lip, take the dead bird out that got stuck in there a while back, and cut out the section so the air can make it thru the lower grille to the CAI.

resprayed the lower fascia, sprayed the upper, installed my ZL1 grille, black CAI from CAI inc. "relocated" the washer bottle, cut out the plastic for the race scoop I will eventually get.

Got my new fogs! Had to modify them a little cause I have a 2012. They look great, just a little cooler than the stock halos. Waiting on Ofer's harness so they stay on the whole time.

Alright, so ive learned my lesson with LEDs. I see that you need to bite the bullet, and pay a little more to get quality up front.

No more IJDMToy.

Just ordered some stuff from V-Leds, and AAC has been good to me so far. Ofer's harness is obviously a great product.

I am going to do a full DIY on installing the switchback turn signals when I get them, as there seems to be a lot of people with issues.

Once i finish my fogs and turnsignals up. Then put my SLP gill inserts on, ill probably do another night photoshoot. And I guess put my name in the hat for COTW.

Seems like you need a supercharger to get it, but I wont be doing any more mods for a while lol.

Thanks!

I used vinyl, when I was doing it I wasnt sure If I was going to like it. But I really like it. The car/rims would be naked without the pinstripe. And it holds up great.

Not that you can really see the seam on mine, but Ive seen someone do a seamless version where they took a giant piece of vinyl, put it over the entire rim, then just cut the pinstripe out.

Yeah! They are great, they are white LED while the halos or headlights are on, and blink amber when the blinker is on!

I made a DIY on how to install, its not hard at all, just a little wiring http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=270160
