I pm'd aac to ask if they install. I might just send them my taillights this week if they'll do it. It's in the shop for work anyway. If AAC and turn them around in less than 2 weeks, I might do that.
If you send them the taillight housings the turnaround is usually 2-3 days. Install fee is 179. They are out of office until 3/29. Am waiting for the ones they are doing for the SST.

SMD= Very Bright, Definitive Light.
CCFL= Soft Glow, Ambient Light.

I let them pick and they said the SMD fit the SST "personality"...

Here is a link to a pick showing the difference:

I also went with SMD. SMDs are made with LEDs. CCFLs are similar to fluorescent lighting. CCFLs require ballasts and don't last as long as LEDs. SMDs are also brighter, but aren't as smooth and individual lights can be seen up close. They're both good technologies...just get there different ways. You can get CCFL halos and tail lights, but the sidemarkers are only LED. I also have Showstopper mirrors and wanted everything to look the same. That made my decision easier.

Thanks, speedster. I saw that pic, but it's so hard to judge brightness from a picture.

That is the info I need. I will go with the SMDs for sure.

I have tinted taillights, so I think the brighter SMDs are the best choice for me.

Thanks to all of you. I pm'd AAC to get quote on doing them for me.

Thanks!!

Greg & Wes from RPMM installed my Whipple, suspension pieces, cam and new valvesprings. It was a long haul, but it was worth it. Greg is a really good dude and reasonably priced.

Russ it was great meeting you as well bro! You have a great wife too and it was a pleasure chatting with her. I'll be more than happy to run you if my car is running up to par.

Sherry and I had a great time hanging out with you. You have such a great perspective on things... Your Camaro is such a sweet looking ride and runs like a champ !! ...and if you do anywhere near the stuff you are talking about doing your car will be INSANE.

Can't wait to hang with you again. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
Take care buddy.

Thanks Bruce and I enjoyed chatting with the two of you as well. Both of you are lucky to have one another and I'm fortunate to have met you guys. I'm looking forward to the next time we meet as well.
