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!!!!!

They are shown on gmparts direct for $327 for the kit, but not yet available
92221433 for Yellow
92221438 for Orange

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.

About what size drill did you use?

Also, somebody asked but I don't think it was answered, how was the light tube keep in place behind the trim piece?

I got some parts ordered.

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?

No one likes a smart ass Doug

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
