I bet it's like a new windshield would be best, but not required.

GREAT work on this so far, 2SSRS... no doubt you will do an awesome job with this DIY. If I wasn't already committed to trading the 2010 i got used for an new '11 with IOM interior instead of the black and with the rear-parking sensors (and HUD of course) then I would be right there with you trying to do this.

I seriously doubt you would need a new windshield considering how much reflection we get just from the black defrost vents against the black faux-leather plastic dash

The HUD will probably reflect just fine in all but the most direct sunlight on it.

You should not need a new windshield. It's really more the angle of the projector in relation to the angle of the windshield that allows you to see the reflection. Think of the glare you get off your dash if you use armorall on your dash (I remember many years ago washing my parents car and putting armorall everywhere... talk about a mess... ).

The easiest way to tell if GM really did create a special glass for this application is to ask your parts manager that gave you the GM parts diagrams if there is a different part number for the windshield for a 2011 vs a 2010.

Thank you now for the bad news went to dealer and there are new part numbers for the 2011 windshield.

But i think it will work with the windshield we have now, The way i see it if the price was the same for the 2010 windshield and the 2011 then it may be the same windshield.

Got all the low speed bus and high speed bus wiring Schematics. will post up later.

First parts are do in some time this week, But the HUD unit is still not out at the parts counter, It takes time for GM to put out the units,

The good thing is with all the wiring Schematics i have it will work.

All that the 2011 windshield does is add clarity to the reflection making it easier to read during the day and brighter at night. Without it, the HUD will look fuzzier than it should, however if you don't know any better, then it should be just fine for you. This project is done a lot in the older Vette's with high success rates. You should have no problems.

This is a cool mod but I would never do it. I have had a couple Corvettes, only one had HUD, the 2000. When I got the 2007 it didn't have it and I didn't care. Its cool but I wouldn't spend any money adding to my '10.

I have a portable HUD in my truck. Here is why you need the windshield. If you don't have the 2011 windshield it will still work but MIGHT show a double image. That is what mine does when reflecting onto the windshield. The reason is you get an image from both sides of the windshield and it looks like 2 images, one on top of the other but offset. Not a deal breaker. I don't understand the problem though. Just go get a new windshield. Problem solved. Thats my plan.

Keep up the good work 2SSRS.

I guess the good news is that you can always change the windshield later, if you're unhappy with the projection.

Who knows, maybe you'll get a rock chip and your insurance will replace your windshield with the 2011 model...

It will take some time to finish this mod, Not all the parts are out from GM at this time, it takes some time for new parts to get out.

I will have some pics of the switch and harness this week and me cutting the dash for the switch.

Is there any daring member in your area that has a 2011 that would let you try with theres?

You know something else that is crazy, is that I heard the name of who made the HUD from Al Oppenheiser at the MI Fbody meet and greet. I can't recall the name.
