Yes, you can do it with cloth panels. Remember, you're shining light up behind the trim panel, not through it.

Well, since the lighting doesn't come on until night time, I am not sure why you would want to see it done with white?

I have added new trim panels for the doors and wired the led lights. How do I get the light pipe/tubing? I did not think about this before installing. Can someone please help me out? I will also need the splitter for the dash install. Thank you.

Send 2SSRS a PM that you want to buy a splitter and light tube.

As seen in the OP.

In reading some of their DIY threads I was still left with some questions, so I am just doing a simple write-up in my own manner to see if I can help out at all. I read and posted in 2SSRS’s original thread here…http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40804.

2SSRS (Ofer is his real name) has a great post and helped me out tremendously during the process. Again, my write-up is simply to write up my experience and to answer some of the questions I had during my project.

The last 8 of my VIN are A9113647 and it is a 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS. Ofer states that GM pre-wired all of the 2010 Camaro’s up to VIN A9160000 for the ABL mod. After these VIN’s you will have to use a t-tap method for power, which is basically using a connector to tap power from another wire. You can get the t-tap method from Ofer’s thread…http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40804.

The method I used requires no drilling at all.

Noone in the US has them. Already contacted Tyco to see if they could search their dealer network.

There are a few Chinese suppliers but good luck disiphering their sites to get one into the US.

I just ordered some 5mm "side glow" fiber from a company, as soon as it arrives I'll test it and take some pics and also post a link. I don't want to jump the gun and have people buying something that doesnt work for this application...

I just received the harness and parts and had a question about wiring. I have a 2011 and dont want to T-Tap the wires. What I was wondering is If I could create a wire extension that connects to the ABL Door Panels, is routed through where the door and car meet, under the dash and over to the Wiring harness where the guage pack would plug in. Is it too much power to power up the 2 LED's for the doors as well as the 3 LED's in the dash, plus the Guage pack, should I decide to get the guage pack in the future?

I have the part numbers for the connectors to create a wire extension, but all I really need to know is if I will draw too much power off of this connector and risk blowing fuses.

You can run more then 7LED'ss per side on the door wire.

But that is not the problem for you, Your car does not have a wire from the BCM to connector x208

If you can hold on i will have the wire to add that, and more.

I know I dont have the connector, what I want to do is draw power off of the Harness you sent me. What I would do is run the Door Panels through the car over to this harness.

I can build a couple Y connectors and Run the wire. I just need to know if I can run the 5 LED's and the Guage pack off of the Guage packs power supply without running into electrical issues. I want to make this as plug and play as possible.

There is a wire that is not there coming out of the BCM and going to X208 connecter that is all that is missing to power your door ABL.

Working on getting the terminals to make the wire.

No, if it all works out all you will do is take the battery power off, then the two connecters and push the wire in the the BCM connecter on one end then into the X208 connecter on the outer side, and put it back together and it will work.

For the ABL in the doors we found that that is the only wire missing for it to work.

The power to the door locks has to plug into a harness somewhere within the door, correct? Is it possible instead of T-taping there to create a Y splitter within the door?

I havent opened up the panels yet so I am not quite sure what the BCM or X208 connectors are that you are referring to. Trying to visualize it I am getting lost.

The door lock lead is 12v constant so your led would be on at all times, even with the ignition in "off"...

Sorry I meant the window switch that you would T-Tap into.
