I know rgvshelby is a great source to buy the headlights but has anyone bought the ebay Vland brand? Later on down the line I plan on upgrading them to rbg Bluetooth anyway. Never mind I see ppl using them I’m good.

I’m pulling my bumper off today and that’s an idea I’ve thought of as well. Looks really good guys. Tomorrow fedex will deliver my harness and bulbs from Rgv and Usps should also drop off the headlights

Thanks! I used the automotive strength Goop with some high adhering gorilla glue caulk, but tbh the goop holds better

Here’s the link for the mesh.

https://www.customcargrills.com/prod...od=Perf_GT_B24


The way I did mine was line up the center of the mesh, laying the grill face down on the carpet. Zip tie the center bottom and center top to hold in place and bend the mesh to follow the contour “waves” of the grill. This stuff is extremely rigid so rest your hands the night prior. As you get it to bend to the contour or wherever you like, add more zip ties to hold it and place. Make sure to give yourself some extra room around the protruding edge of the grill, and then fold the mesh (this will hurt the fingers a lil) over that rim. You will have to cut and overlap some to get it to bend and not show through the front. Then again, zip tie the edges. Now where you bent the mesh over the rim, use the goop to run some thick lines all around the edge careful not to hit the zip ties. You can use some on center of the grill to the mesh as well but be careful so it’s not visibly exposed. Let it sit 48 hours, cut the zip ties. I also added permanent zip ties by pulling through the non exposed mesh around the edges through the grill tabs. Hope this helps, lemme know if you guys have any trouble.

So these will fit on a 2010 Camaro as well? With 2010 lights and side markers? What kind of modifications would be needed to make it fit if any?

Just read over the last 3 pages I’ve just asked this info and completed the process other than this mesh mod I plan on adding.

I you plan to keep the same lights you will have a huge gap on the side of the lights here’s a pic for reference

How is the fitment with the hood? So basically if I wanted to I could do it in steps bumper first and then lights a few months later to spread out the cost?

I think if someone could they could fill the gap with some kind of filler thing like even a 3D printed thing to hide the gap would probs work
