I'm taking a break from working on the Camaro so I thought I'd post a few pix for your viewing pleasure.

Hella projector headlights. I need to order another pair. I also need to fab up some beauty plates.



Old replaced parts (tranny don't count). Some of them anyway there's more around somewhere. AKA beauty plate material.


295s. I need to break out the hammer and grinder to make a little clearance for these.


View of little brakes. You might like to save this one, you probably won't ever see these wheels this clean again.

I don't think the penny goes that way, Jim! Smile

Oh, and those lights look great! Look a LOT better than they did a coupe weeks ago! Very Happy Way to stay with it! AND the hood shuts!!! WOOT! afro

Ah that's Bill's penny now. I'll ask him if I can move it. Smile

I screwed around for a long time trying to mount the headlights like a couple people posted on one of the Camro forums. When I finally gave up and decided to do it my way it went much easier IMHO. I'll try to remember to snap a pix of the other bracket. Kind of like reading on the internet that 295s and Vette rims fit on third gens without any modification at all!

BTW cheapest place I found the lights is Amazon.com, sign up for a credit card and get $30 off. You can buy one pair and your wife can buy the other. For anyone that hasn't seen these lights they work great. HIDs > Hella 90mm H9s > TBI > sliced bread

Kind looks like head light mods in camaros are easier than caprices. scratch

That is the mirror. I just wired on the connectors. I have to put the front bumper cover and stuff back together and I'm done. It gonna really suck to have to change a light bulb but I can live with that.
I'd post a pix of the light pattern but I don't want to make grown men cry (and the battery is dead).

Gotta find my hammer by tomorrow.

Awesome!

Can't WAIT to see it!

I just installed a high/lo HID kit in the Marshmallow. Lots of light. None of it pointed where you want it. Wink

Well that took a lot of hammering to get those tires to fit. Good thing it's not a nice car. About 1" less back space would have been a much better fit.

I did an alignment too. Now the car pulls to the right.

F-Body alignment sucks. B-Bodies are much easier.

Lihghts work good. They just need a bit of adjustment. Did I mention that you don't need a headlight harness on 4th gens. Smile

I saw a C6 at work today. How do they stay on the road with those skinny tires?

I flashed my lights at a fellow Camaro owner tonight. I think he was confused.

Life is good then your opti dies.
