Headlights on at night are not legal in any state. You must shut them off as soon as it gets dark. Razz

I moved the turn signals/marker lights into the cornering light housings. I was going to add cornering lights, but I like the look of this and might add fog lights or second high beams where the turn signals are supposed to go.

You're gonna have to supply us with a video! I like the extra high beam idea a lot TBH Can't wait to see which way you go with it.

Now that's a great idea!

It's legal in MA as long as the bulbs/lens is amber...... (I used to get stopped ALOT! Very Happy )

I'm gonna do clear corners in the caddy,
If this works out for you I may try to add fogs to the lac's setup.

Great job Mike !!!!

That looks pretty awesome...I'm assuming some sort of fog bulb like what's on my Tahoe may twist into the spot for the inner marker lights, then it would just have to be wired up?

That's not a problem; I don't drive with them on. I just put them on when it's parked for decoration.

I turn the dash lights off at night, too. Total stealth mode.

Exactly. How do the fog lights turn on in the Tahoe? I was thinking of adapting a Chrysler LHS setup; you pull the headlight switch out to turn the fogs on.

+1 if that idea works that's really cool. I would never have thought of that.

On my Tahoe there is a button on the dash you push to turn them on, and you push it again to shut them off again, it's a momentary contact switch I guess. They shut off if you shut the truck off, and you have to turn them back on again manual when you restart...on my truck it may be a complicated system...however the bulbs themselves seem like they may work in the headlight capsules on a caprice? I think my bulbs are an "880", the ones for non-Z71 Tahoes are a different bulb...

aset of retrofit projectors in there hooked to high beam would work better with a clear polished lense.
