BLUEBIRD

Dont know where to really start, but I guess I will start by introducing myself. My name is Todd and I just picked up a wonderful camaro, and I must say, BY FAR, the best car that I have owned!!!!!!

So now, with out further adieu lets meet bluebird!!!!!
Purchased her in January of this year 2013 with only 222 miles on her (So she hasnt been around the block at all )

So first thing I went and did was get some halo style lights for her and installed some grill lights as well as some fogs!!!! Sorry guys lost all pics of the breakdown and install after switching phones but I DO have the finished product!!!!!! I installed the halos and the grill lights so that I have a switch for both and I can turn them on and off whenever I want.

For all those people that are trying this, I wired them so that they are powered up in the fuse box under the hood. I did not splice anything. Sam Yesuratnam I must give credit to as he helped me install and wire everything. There is also a small little hole behind the engine in the far right corner that you can feed the wire through which you could run it through to the fuse box from the switches inside. You will have to pull back some of the carpet lining, but you can see the little hole and even feel it. I also would recommend using all factory wire connectors and wire covers as well. GM uses Delco weatherpack connectors for the wiring connectors and that is what I used. They provide great protection and are highly reliable. I also used a soldering tool to solder together whenever I needed.

I purchased the halos from here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2010-2011-CH...item4608bb81a4 and the sellers name is Sabersport

For the fogs I bought the DRL harness from Gen5DIY here http://www.gen5diy.com/PnP_harnesses...oglamp-harness

and I purchased the fog lights online as well here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Smoked-Subur...item43bc8f1a31

]So the next mod I did was a blackout of the front, side, and rear emblems of the camaro. I used black plastidip for that job. Actually came out great.

Next I wanted to get rid of those annoying yellow fog light, so I switched them with size 5202 6000k LED lights. I ran into a problem though, the LED was fatter than the hole in the fog light allowed. So i had to go to home depot and get a cutting drill bit to widen the hole so the LED could fit.

But overall came out great!!! There are before (yellowish fogs) and after (blue lightish tint). Next up with the lights need to get some HID's and some interior footwell and dome lighting.

You can get the fog lights here: (not same seller as mine, mine was dt moto)

Next up was the catch can install. I know i am late in getting it in, but better late than never, as i hear that this is an important addition that needs to go on the car for obvious reason. I ordered a elite engineering from Tyler @ JDP motorsports. Great price, great service from JDP and great product!!!!!

About two weeks later I popped the can open and saw a little of the gunk that gets sprayed in your car...smh!! Thank G*D for catch cans
