J, so I showed you the switch that was used to power ON/OFF the DRLs.
Here's what we did to it. Keep in mind the pins on the back are EXTREMELY delicate....Ask me how I know

We definitely went a little overkill, but after breaking pins on the first switch, I ordered 2 more, one as a back up. But when you see the completed switch you'll see why we went this route. Solder, heat shrink & hot glued!
If you have the means, I would recommend doing what we did to the switch to make it bulletproof!!!

Again, the Oracle LED Ring Switch $19 from AAC



Wiring Diagram



We also made our own


Bottom of switch, notice the pins (Very fragile)



Soldered each pin


Rubber Boots & Heat Shrunk on every wire






Broken switch is on the left, you'll notice the broken pins.


Once all individual wires were soldered & heat shrunk, we glued & heat shrunk them all together
Glued to base


Rubber boot over top


Heat shrunk





Now after hooking up the DRL harness(From Fieldgoal) in the front bumper
, because I chose the Switched option, had to cut the loop on the relay for harness (all this is included in the instructions from FG).





So we had to run those wires some how to the switch location on my console. Since I also added the Oracle Scanner Bars(Red & White) behind my grille, I wanted to wire them each to a toggle switch hidden under my dash. We did this because those scanner lights have hundreds of combinations of lighting and each has it's own wireless remote, so by doing this I can set them to the pattern I want with the remotes, then just turn off & on using the 2 hidden toggles.

I also had to run the wiring for the 2 gauges (Boost & Air/Fuel) some how into the cabin, and GM provided us with a nice sized hole plugged by a grommet right in the drivers side firewall just above the big, thick red power cable you see running through firewall, thanks for the FYI AngelSpeedFreak. You should be able to see it when looking with a flashlight.

Here is the hole in firewall & conveniently it comes right out behind the carpet above the pedals inn the drivers footwell. Couldn't be a more perfect location because you also have the fuse box right there as well.

Follow the red cable to firewall






Easy access to drivers side fuse box


Here are the 2 toggle switches that power on/off the Oracle Scanner bars. Hidden under the dash, near the OBD-II port
View from below


View from inside, hot glued as well.


And last but not least, to finally answer your question Jhall, where I mounted the DRL LED Switch? Right along with my other lighting controls, and as mentioned, I will also mount another LED Ring switch once my new ZL1 bumper arrives to control the 2nd set of Projector Fogs.



And as embarrassing as it sounds, I don't yet have a picture of the switch installed. But I'll have one for you on Monday, it's a perfect match for my ABL Blue lighting on the doors, dash, footwells & cupholder. But you should have a good idea by now of where & how I mounted the DRL & Scanner lighting.

Thanks again everyone for the positive feedback & for the CAR OF THE WEEK honor!!

There is another option for switching. Here is what I used and it works great. Not a finished photo either but I didn't do any drilling on my dash. And it can control up to 4 devices. Finished it is all tucked up underneath. You can see some of the wire loom and LED footwell lighting I was installing at the time. I am currently trying to figure out a way to remote everything in my home link in the overhead.

Wow! Thanks for the in depth response. I think I will take it a step at a time and just start with replacing those ugly bulbs Chevy decided to go with. On another note I did install my hurst shifter and Cat Back Borla exhaust. I love both. Funny thing is the company I bought the exhaust through accidentally sent me 2. Haha. I had to fight off the devil on my shoulder that was tell me to sell the extra for more parts but in the end the angel won and I called them to return the extra Borla exhaust system. Hopefully they remember what a nice guy I am when it comes time for me to order my SC, LTH and CAI.

I can see the 2 little guys on your shoulders, keep em, give em back!!!
You did the right thing, karma always comes around! Check out the AAC Oracle Plasmas to replace the yellow DRLs, you won't be disappointed!

Nice set up Tom! Nice & simple

Thanks John, I still have one position on the touch pad to use and I think I'm going to do what you did with the DRLs.

JHall, good on you. You can count yourself as one of the few who can sleep at night knowing you did the right thing. I respect that.

Thank you Stand, I appreciate the COTW honor, it really made my year!!!
I'm really happy people can appreciate it and all the work that went into it....Suspension upgrades by Pedders, Pfadt, Granatelli & BMR have made it drive like a true super car!

Thanks Pierre, I'm wondering if the SS ever will be truly finished...Haha!! I hope one day it will be, and I'll say enough is enough! My problem is I always want to go faster, and although I went with SLP & their Maggie TVS 2300 Supercharger with the 5yr/100K powertrain warranty, I really think that could be going out the window. Especially since I'm considering adding gears, headers & cam......

Thank you Tmac for the kind words! The 3dCarbon Vents were really one of the first things I knew I was doing to the body, along with Eric's MPD1 Hood, Rear Spoiler & Smooth Exhaust panel. The vents really make it different and the key thing is they're functional and serve a purpose....Your car looks pretty sick too my friend!!

More goodies arrived & installed this week....No, not the ZL1 Bumper yet.. Come on GM, let's go!!!

Got my ZL1 Fuel pump from Patrick @ GM Parts House


From Lupe @ River City Creations, the beautifully painted Strut Tower Brace....You da man Lupe!!


From MTI Racing, I upgraded the the stock Tensioner with their Billet Racing Tensioner & also a 87mm Billet Pulley to replace the stock plastic one.






From Jordan @ JDP Motorsports, the Pfadt Front Radius Arm Bearings & Rear Upper Control Arm Inner Bushing got installed yesterday, along with the Pedders Eccentric Full Alignment Kit (Which can be a real PIA to install!)
Just a heads up for anyone with suspension or engine questions, Jordan really knows his stuff, he's a Forum Sponsor, he races his Camaro plus other cars, and a generally nice dude that's always available to answer any questions.


Pedders Full Alignment Kit


Pfadt Parts




This is the stock bushing on the rear arm that gets replaced with the Bearing, much better design obviously. Instead of it acting like a rubber band, it'll move much smoother and really improve handling....Imagine that, if you think your stock SS handles good......



Also working on an album & posters for the car shows with the help of Photoshop guru & fellow Jersey Boy, Chris (xVengeancex28)

Here's a few sneak peaks:










So this coming week, Pedderized alignment on Monday, ZL1 Fuel pump, Strut Tower Brace, MTI Tensioner & Pulley will get installed afterwards, I'll be thinking about my custom badge placement, while waiting & praying for Gary of Gary's Customz to tell me the ZL1 bumper is in ...And patiently waiting for my custom CAI lid from Bill @ CAI, that one's going off to Emblem Pros without the glass to get Hydro-Coated the same Illusion pattern as my other under hood components, thus increasing airflow to the box courtesy of the Z-Force hood.

I'm also getting the ball rolling on swapping out the rear end to a Strange Engineering Rear End with either LPE(Lingenfelter) 3:70 or 3:91 gears, along with 1400HP Half Shaft axles & a GForce Carbon Fiber Driveshaft.....Yes, I think I'm becoming crazy, but in a good way!

Thanks again to EVERYONE for all the positive comments, support & the Car of the Week honor, it's much appreciated & keeps me motivated!

Thanks Pierre! I know you're sweating it out waiting for your Maggie install this week But believe me amigo, it'll be well worth it!! All the credit for the pics must go to Chris (xVengencex28) here on the forum, he's a real photo guru!!

Thanks much GG, I put a lot of time & thought into each mod,, sometimes taking one step forward & then two steps back. It's all about trial & error, like if I knew I was going to do the ZL1 front bumper I probably would've only ordered a few pieces from 3dCarbon, like the Fender Vents, Side Skirts & Rear Spats, but live and learn! You're going to love the Kilis rims, very high quality & look great!

Time to put the ZL1 Fuel Pump in.... I know it's going to be a PITA

Thanks T, I appreciate the kind words!! It's really become a labor of love now....BTW I notice you have the Metra kit, how do you like it? I'm going that route also, would love to hear your feedback.

Well, the kit is decent enough. It does what its supposed to. You can add double din decks, its handles hvac controls, it even keeps on star function and steering wheel controls.

My gripes, it isn't the nicest looking thing, and it took a lot of fiddling to get the fitment just right. I plan to take it out and try some painting and more fiddling to see if I can improve it more.

But it does everything its supposed to to and I have no problems with it.

Thank for the info T, appreciate it!

I definitely want to replace the stock head unit & I like the idea how the HVAC controls are integrated into the Metra. I'd also either get it painted or Hydro-coated, but it's a plus to have a nice touchscreen instead of the stock stuff.
