I do have the part numbers for all the connectors and pins, The problem is No one has ever have them.

There new Connectors so they have never made it to distributes or a retail outlets, I have tried to find out more info on them from the manufacturer, There sales manager is working on getting me some info next week.

Some of the members on here are tiring to help and sent me connectors that are the same amount of pins but are not the same fitting so we need the right ones.

As soon as i have more info i will post i know how much a lot of us want this in our cars. ( Me to that is why i am going to spend as much as it takes to add HUD)

Worst case is you could use single wire push on female pins with about a 2 inch length wire, solder them in place, shrink tube over top of them and then make your own in-line connection at the end of the wires. Do that on both ends and you then just make your own harness between those "flying leads" with connectors you supplied.

I cut in the new HUD switch with only a box cuter that is how soft the dash is, The best part is no hard clean up this way.



And this pic is with it in the dash.

Hi 2SSRS

I am following this closely, because this is one of the features that I wish had come out with the 2010. I am hoping that once you have this working in your car you will post step by step instructions on how to do this mod. Also if you do end up making a wiring harness that takes the differences into account for the two years and makes it a plug and play you can put me down for one. Thank You for all you are doing.

I will do the best i can to make it a step by step instructions, But i was not grate at school work never did my home work in time, I am more of a fixer then a thinker, My intent is to make a plug and play harness that gos inline of the instrument harness and then to the HUD.

2SSRS,

Any thoughts on whether a SW update will be required in the car's computer system? The HUD is probably pretty much self contained but if there is specific HUD type messages required on the bus, they may not be in our SW.

Did the Corvette guys that did the upgrade get a plug and play install (i.e. no SW update needed)?

The way i see it i do not believe it will require any upgrade, The way i look at it this is like adding the 4 pack gauges there was no upgrade required for that part, This will be the same all the main components are there, the HUD is only a display of the info from all the components.

It does require a special windshield that has a relective coating. I had to replace a w/shield on my Grand Prix GTP w/ HUD, expensive sucker too.. But I imagine it will work at night and low light w/ the standard windshield.

First, a huge THANKS for confirming that a retro-fitting of the HUD to 2010 CAMAROS is possible (I wonder if it is achievable in other GM vehicles).

Second, a much deserved salute to you for having the courage and spirit fortitude to attempt to do this modification on your own new car.

I wonder if you can walk straight without hurting your own thighs insides.... with your big brass b_lls!!

Best of luck to you!!
