Hey Justin, Could you PM me with a price for these dual color? I have a RS/SS. Would they be cheaper at the fest?....I'll be there.

Thanks,

Ronnie

Put it in there for 20 mins and the pop the tabs on the headlight lens and get a screw driver up under the lens with the plastic still soft. This was far easier said then done. It took me a lot of tries at 275, you have to push one side down pretty far to get the screw driver under there. Once the first edge is up it is pretty simple but i still reheated it several times after the first edge was up to aid in the process. After thats done you take out the old halo and install the new LED halo. You epoxy it in the housing, and i snipped the old halo wiring and connected it to the new ones to make it an easy fit back to the power wires. After the new halos are in its time to put your lenses back on your headlight. You use black silicon around the edges of the housing and then put the lens back on and hold it in place with vice grips for a reccommended 3-4 hours. Mine are an hour and a half into the silicon drying time. I hooked the lights up to test them before i sealed the lenses again and it is a pretty sight. I cant wait till they dry and i can see them at night. On to the fog light halos

why do these two headlights look like they have different mounting points? Is it the difference between halogen and HID's? I can't see them copletely mounting something differently because of different bulbs...

EDIT: sorry i guess the pictures didn't transfer with my quoting. check out posts #3 and #61

Amazing Writeup!

I think alot of us were on the fence about pulling the trigger on this DIY upgrade, but after seeing this tutorial I feel pretty confident about doing this now.

Again, much appreciated!

they are tucked in there a ways. You have to peel the inner wheel well back and shine a light in there. You'll see 2 of them and the 3rd is at the very top. There are also 2 10mm bolts behind the turn signal. 1 that you can see and one you can't. You need to unscrew the on you can't see. Just feel around and you'll find it.

FYI about these. I am doing them myself right now and just waiting on another reheating of one of the lamps. Make sure you put a towel or something thick like that on the grill of your oven otherwise the bars on the rack will melt away on the heat lamp. I first used a simple white shop towel that Costco sells in bulk and it still melted just a bit. Now I am using a much thicker bath towel folded over 4 times.

What temperature do you have this set on? I have never seen a grill melt the headlight plastic.

Putting a towel in the oven is a great way to start a fire, I do not suggest this.

220.

A fire won't start. You don't touch the heating bars and it takes 451 degrees for paper to catch on fire which also means a towel needs to be around that temperature.

I use to be big into cooking and learned years ago when using silicon for baking is that you can not have the silicon directly on the rack. You need something in between, such as even a backing sheet. I just suggest not to use metal for this, maybe even glass/pyrex would probably be okay too.

Actually question. What gauge wiring is on the halos? I swear that when I talked to someone there a few days ago he said 8 but that is pretty big wiring. Maybe he said 18?

I'm about half way done on an install of Oracle dual halos but have a question on wiring. Where is a good spot to hook up the positive wires where they will turn on and off as the stock RS halos that I am replacing? I was told that the wires to the stock halos have a resistor on them so they aren't that powerful so I shouldn't use them. Basically I want the halos to only come on as they were stock.

A resistor? Hmm I've never heard this. Jonathan or AAC, can you guys elaborate/explain or confirm on this?

Hey, I am also getting ready to install these onto my 1LT 2010 camaro. I did NOT get the DVD with my kit, and I got the bulk remote box. Each of the lights have three wires (two black and one red). I also got one switch with the kit. Where, also, would be a "handy" place to put the remote box? I am very excited to install these, but I am just very confused on the wiring for them.

You can put the controller in the engine bay. I used 3M tape to mount it to the frame.

Has anyone just skipped wiring the halos to any other light wire and just used the switch they come with and a 12v source? I think I'd like the idea of having a switch in the cabin for just the halos.

Does anything bad happen if you "forget" to put back the very top bolts in the fender well that were a pain in the butt to remove?
