2010-13 Camaro Afterburner Installation under $60

I installed my afterburner taillights this weekend on 2011.They came out great! It took me about 5 hours. 3 of those hours was just waiting on the silicone to dry. I ordered my lights through Amazon for only $49.99. Most vendors have them for over $200. The instructions are step by step. The hardest part for me was actually cutting on my lights. I was a little nervous at first, but it got easier over time. All you need for the installation are the lights, one tube of clear RTV silicone, 10mm wrench, dremel or similar cutting device, electrical tape and painters tape. Mine are my actual driving lights if I turn on the parking or head lights. The turn signals and brake lights still work as it did from the factory. The time is well worth it. What do you think?

Yes you do. You are going to be nervous. If you send me a private message, I'll give you my number and I will walk you through the process.

I have been receiving many requests for the instructions. Add your pics once you installed your lights.

Order an extra set in case of failure. Three led bulbs on one strip went out so I had to replace it.
