So just saw the first pic and I thought hey that looks firmiliar lol considering I just got done drawing it today. Nice to c your up here looks like your Mods are going well ive got the brand new Amazon Depots in the back on my car right now planning on putting them in soon and finishing out the Blackd out theme.

Btw Ive replaced every bulb in my car including the cluster with LEDs just a heads up they can be a pain so make sure you buy extras. The Map lights are easy just use a Blade and pop out the plastic clear covers. just making sure the LEDs are getting a good contact or they will flicker ive had to replace a few of mine in the Cluster they were the biggest pain. Good Luck!

Thanks a bunch. Im working on the exterior LED lights to replace. The tail light LEDs are expensive as hell through superbrightleds. All the interior is LED except the Dash cluster and the map lights, I might let them go for awhile. I plan on doing maybe a couple more cosmetic stuff, SFCs, and a stereo set-up and Im calling it good. How do you get the bulbs out of the sockets tho on the maplights?

Ill have to give that a try when I get back into doing the interior lights. Id really love to order all the LED lights for the back but its going to be like $160 for 8 LED lights.
BTW sharp looking camaro you have there

Very sharp!!

What exhaust do you have on it? My wife has a 2002 that we got recently and I am looking at making some mods. One being exhaust, another being CAI.

I love the spoiler too. Would like to get one, but at $300 unpainted, that is going to wait for now.

Actually the HIDs have to do with plasma discharge using gases rather than a filament and are very Crisp when you have Clear Housings to put them in while putting out more light than a regular "bulb", however to each is own everyone is going to have a diff opinion

Flowmaster. Not sure of the series. Previous owner had it installed. I have some vids on youtube. Soundsa decent for a V6

I thought HIDs were best to use in a projector housing? Im prob just going to upgrade bulbs sometime.

Yea, I just didnt feel like really explaining what they are. I have 8ks with a hint of blue and the slim balace. the positives is it does in fact light up the road in front of you but if the incoming coming driver happens to look at your headlights while driving past, it does hurt their eyes. I let my buddy drive my car while I picked up another car and couldnt believe how bright they were. In my opinion I think projectors aim the low beams so the reflective light so it doesnt end up above the aiming point.
