Help with AAC dual halo install

Is there anyone in the northern VA area that could help me do this install? I cant find a shop that will touch this project and cant send my lights to Justin as the camaro is my DD. I am more than happy to compensate via food/money/beer/story telling, you name it.

Really just looking for someone who can walk me through the process and stop me if I'm about to royally screw up. Please PM me if you're up for helping. Thanks.

Yea i have the electronic copy of all of that. I understand the phisically taking off the front facsia, putting them in the oven, etc but as for the wiring of them I'm completely lost on. Would you guys know a shop in NOVA that could do it? Or know of a shop?

Not sure if this will help you or not but i did mine myself. If I had to do it over again, I would have gone for a professional install (just to save myself some stress!). I did it all myself back in May and taking the front bumper off was a bit of a challenge only because I couldn't get my hand in certain spots. As far as the wiring, as I'm sure you might have guessed, the wires are going to hang out of headlight housing itself. I have the dual color halos on a remote so I ran the wires in to the remote sensor and the rest of the wires I have tapped in to a gound on the frame of the car and for power into the positive terminal on the right.. Hope this helps. Good luck.

AAC LIGHTS

I had a brand new Pontiac Grand AM GT one time and I acutally drove down to Illinois because a guy told me he would basically crack the lenses out and remove the red reflectors so they would be clear. A complete mess my lens were hanging on by gobs of glue and they were cracked in several spots.
I had the bright idea to crack open the fog lights on the camaro to install the halo fogs. This time I played smart and just gave my original fogs to the dealer while I was away in Vegas for my b-day. They went thru several hands at the dealer but they came out AWESOME and no cracks and no problem with any leaks. My best advice is go to a shop or a professional to get the best work
