Hi Ofer,

I had posted in some threads that I started getting all of the necessary information together a couple of weeks ago to do this to my car. I am finished with my comparison as to what actually is different from the SS to the ZL1. The front lower bumper is not available yet. Once I get all of the pieces I will be working on this myself.

The only other thing I am not sure about is wiring those new lights. I was going to talk to you and see what you thought or could come up with. So, since we will be working on this at the same time, it is good.

It seems as if once we have all of the parts we need, the actual change will not be that hard or that big of a deal.

Have you thought about what you're going to do about the wiring yet?

Thanks,
Gene.

It will be a week till you get it there all back east, and the fog lights are the same ones that are on your SS now, the part that is not out is the patr that holds it to the bumper.

But I guess you have to spend your money some how.
Really enjoy the HUD. Hope you had a good turkey day!
This way you can come down next year for more mods.

OK so I re-read your post above 2SSRS about making a PNP harness for RS and Non-RS cars... so I'm assuming the foglamps would then always come on with the headlights and/or parking lights? I was referring to the fact that there is usually an additional switch (either on the dash or on the turn signal stick) to turn the foglamps on/off independently from the headlights...

That's why you hide it like I do. Going to see Ofer in a couple of weeks and I hope he doesn't have any of these projects done because I don't know how much I can hide lol
