We got it working it was the fact that i did not know that on 1ss and 1 LT and LS cars there is different wires on those cars.

I can't figure out why one would? The huge hole in the dash looks like garbage IMO.

If you do not like or want the feature, do not add it. This thread is for those who do like, want, and have added the feature. Or to put it in plainer words "If you have nothing Nice to say, do not (don't) say anything at all."

Gotta add that this is absolutely the coolest mod I have done to my car and props to 2SSRS, WCoolBreeze and the many other contributors in the DIY thread. The pics and backstory on all the steps made this a pretty easy mod to do, with a little elbow grease as well.

This is one thing I REALLY wish was on the 2010's.
I had to have aqua blue, therefore forfeited the HUD.
My old car, a 1990 Nissan 240sx has it, and I have LOOOOOOVED having it
for years, and was bummed when I test drove a 2010, and the guy told me it
would be standard on the 2011's last summer.

Just not sure if I want to deface the original dash to make it work...

any pictures of the fabricating that's involved?


thanks.

Oh my of it's amazing. It took forever to get it all together but it was way worth it. And I cut my hangs a few times. It's so cool. I'm pretty upset GM didn't put it in the 2010s to begin with.

That negative comment was actually helpful for me - nobody has posted pics, so knowing that a hole in the dash has to be created makes me think harder about doing it. Maybe I need to drive a 2011 to see if I like it, then see what it looks like as a mod before deciding. Anyone got pics??

If you cut the hole right, it will look like the 2011 dash. Or, you can get the 2011 dash. Don't know if you've seen this thread but it's worth reading.

"That negative comment was actually helpful for me - nobody has posted pics"

If you do a search on the HUD you will find alot of pictures and the DIY on installing the HUD unit. On the Thread that I started I did not feel that it was needed to repost pictures from a least two other threads that had alot of pictures covering nearly the entire install.

Is that a reference to my front floor mess? HAY

Took all of 10 minutes!

You reach up inside the rear fender to unclip and I turned the front wheels & did the screwdriver method.

Hardest part was the stupid plug!
