Great thread by the way!

The light you get from GM comes with the plug on it.

Thanks for the info. Great mod. Do I go to a GM dealer to buy the GM parts, or can I find them online?

You can do what you want. I go to the guys in my town and it is only $15.65 list. And, if you know the guys like me, it was only $12.79 per light.

What type of tape did you use, and where did you tape the light pipe?

I am just waiting for my parts from GM.

If so, I'm taking that crap off. I want my light pipes to run smooth all the way...door to door with no stops. Great job, once again.
Let me know how that turns out!

Electrical tape at the end and around the light to hold the pipe to the light.

Hey-I'm new to the forum- but I wanted to let you know- even though the lights #92238395 (blue) show back ordered. I contacted the dealership where my car is coming in - in a few weeks! (WHOO HOO!!!!) and if they enter your VIN number with the light order- you can get them within about a week..... or so I was told-- haven't gotten mine yet---

Also- I have been following this thread since you first started- AWESOME job!!!! Thanks! I am getting mine installed the day I get it at my local custom shop!!!!!

Keep the faith
As you can see there are GM kits that will be out soon, You will need to buy this kit and 4 lights in your color from GM and 3 light pips from Digi-key, As for power id the doors that are on the dimer it is there you will need to splice in to the wire's in the doors i will get that and post it on hear over the week end for all.

ChevyTech Thanks for the info.

They held it in place with tape (and another cut out parts of the tabs to help keep it in a nice fit.

No idea on the drill bit size. But, I'm sure that when you size up the 5mm tube to a drill bit, it'll become pretty easy to tell the size of drill bit needed. Seriously, is that the right size drill bit?..a 5mm?

Oh, and let me know when you're planning on working on this mod, I wouldn't mind helping out. I really enjoy these types of mods, I just haven't ordered the parts yet

That is the size i used, The dash is Rubber so it comes back if you want try a smaller one, I started with a 7/32 and it was to small so do what you think is right.

I have a question.

Are the lights bright enough to shine out of the bottom of the strip across the dash if a person was to remove a bit of the paint off the bottom like you have to do the top in order for the light to shine through?

If so, I have another question.

If this would work on the dash strips, would the lights in the doors be bright enough to shine out all around the door panel, even if it was just a little bit to give these effects?

So, the 2 GM parts for the color, how do they fit in with the DigiKey part? Does the 1 part run across the entire dash? Does it also cover the small section to the left of the speedo cluster?

My door ABL doesn't quite light to the dash, it falls short about 8 inches or so. Is there a way to get it to the top?

Great stuff!
Thanks,!
