Yes, in that case you just wire these to your parking lights

Just connect red and black to your sidemarkers to enable the parking light halos.

do you have to cut the lense off the fog light to put the halo ring in? There is no other way of doing it?

cant you just tap into the bottom fog light power? Inside the car you just push the button once and it turns on the bottom fog lights. That is how i want all 4 halos to turn on. I want it that way or to be on as the daytime running lights then it switch to regular lights at night.

Most people connect the power to the parking lights so all 4 halos act similar to the factory halos. You have some control with the factory headlight switch.

You can also add a toggle switch or remote control as well.

if i wire to the parking lights what will turn the halos on and off? on a non RS camaro you can turn the bottom fog lights on with just pushing in. I guess the simple way would be to tap into that and remove the fog light so it does not overpower the halo color.

I guess I could do it with a switch but i want it to turn off with power so i dont leave em on

Thanks,

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.
