Did an RS tail light conversion on my LS. Also added black bezels.

Here it is with one side done so you can see the difference.



Both sides done. Took about 90 mins total.

Looks good! I really like the bezels, for me personally, the bezels look a lot better in something other than chrome.
Another option for the taillights would have been one of our Light Smoke Taillight Kits.

Stock non-RS VS Headlight Armor Light Smoke in the afternoon sun.


No, not the same as a real RS taillight assemblies, but an option none the less

You just changed my mind on what to do with the tail light bezels. I was going to have them painted to match the body color (CMG), but the black adds a little flare to it. Plus I have the black stripes.

Got this info from another C5 member:


Go to gmpartsdirect.com, then for the part number, type in pkerstlkit

Delivered for $239.67

This is for all 4 taillights with the RS option.

Thats not an exorbitant amount of money for what you get. Thanks Berean, a year ago I wouldn't have known what your name meant. Now I know about it and so much more.

RS LIGHTS

This is just a plug in and play isn't it? No wiring involved? Those RS tail lights are pure sex

Thanks for the pics! I'm getting my bezels painted black while my tails are away getying the Afterburners installed...I've been wanting to see someone else's Cammy that had
this done. Looks really good. And it DOES make the back end look "meaner". Thanks for sharing that!

Thanks! I got the 2LT package everything minus the RS. Didn't want the summer tires only in Wisconsin and didn't care about the halo lamps in the front. I do love the RS tailz

I did this to my IOM Cammy too. The Headlight Armor was SUPER easy to install and I really like the out come. Although I tinted her all the way around, I'm afraid to put the tints on my headlights ... Not sure "po-po" will like it much and pull me over at first chance.

I hate to ask a stupid question but what makes the RS tail light different from the standard tailight? So far it looks like the glass is darker. what else is there. Are they halogen lights?

Looks good. You should do the black bowtie, too.

Thanks. I did already actually. I need to take a new pic. I've also ditched those trash can mufflers for a cat back Magnaflow exhaust.

Looks really nice. Did you paint the bezels yourself? What type paint did you use, and what surface prep did you do?

Or just spray paint them yourself, it would be even cheaper. Why don't you do that and let us know how it turns out.

its not the lens, the casing behind the lens is black instead of chrome, which makes the RS lens look darker and cool (especially when lit up at night!).
