It's just as much of a protective kit as it is a tint kit. They are much thicker than a normal tint. Phasetek performance.

http://www.phastekperformance.com/20...r-r-lights.htm

It's pretty easy. A solution of water/rubbing alcohol; a heat gun; and a flexible rubber "squeegie". sp?

Total time on the 4 rears was maybe 20 mins.

Oh you used water and alcohol? I was told to use water and soap. Alcohol works better? What did you mean by "sp"?

In addition to the above rockers.....I ordered a bunch of LEDs to change my entire speedo/tach gauge cluster from the FUGLY blue to white and red to match my A/F and Boost gauges and my new door panel LED's all being red :P

Let us know how annoying the rocker job is. From the vids I watch on here looks a little sketchy. I hate having to muscle plastic pieces. Always makes me feel like I'm about to break something. I just always tell myself its plastic and I can buy another. Haha

Ha yeah, I'm guessing 30 minutes just to remove both stockers easy, then 15 minutes to put on the new ones......and about 30 seconds to admire them and blow my load

Got the rockers on!

The dash trim kit was useful as I worked down the stock rockers:


BUT a needle nose was WAY WAY easier one you got some room to work!


Complete Halfway home I stopped as it was getting dark and snapped a few quick pics for y'all:







FL1CK says he will post a vid or two that he took soon......

I'm still getting used to launching this car of course. Started @ 29lbs in the tires. Dropped to 24 and had 2 decent passes......the last pass I dropped to 23lbs(warning light came on for tire pressure) and I did a longer burnout and tried to launch harder......and of course......spun like crazy

Biggest problem was putting the throttle down appropriately and then finding the right spot to hit 2nd gear. 3-4 went well enough but I have to find that sweet spot in the powerband/RPM range to get more out of my 1-2 transition.

This was on 1/3 tank of gas in full trim. I left the tire kit in the trunk, everything in the glove compartment....even my phone/chargers etc.

Below are a current list of mods I've completed on my car as it sits and what she weighed: 3820lbs

Package Options: Basically everything but the sunroof and sub options
1LE package
2SS
RS Package
7" Touch screen navigation
ZL1 dual mode exhaust
Interior pedals/cup holder illumination
Exterior Modifications
Heritage grill
Harder 315's on the rear wheels
Debadged rear
Tinted @ 20%
Blacked out all exterior lighting
Engine Bay mods
TVS2300 w/ overdrive set up
FIC 850 injectors
RotoFab intake w/ washer bottle relocation
Stainless Works L/T headers
Pfadt -1 1/4" drop springs
AI Competition Chiller
PROSPORT EVO wideband and Boost gauges
RX catch can w/ breather
Intake scoop

1/3 tank:


3820lbs (take out the few items in the car I'd say 3815 is more accurate)


Thought she'd be a bit heavier with the maxed out options and the blower on the front and all the beefed up 1LE parts.
