Defenderworx chrome running light bezels

Since these are real new, and I got them installed just yesterday I thought I would share them with moderncamaro.

I did post them in my member car journal on the other site, and my facebook page.

Taking out the existing fog light/running light bezels isn't too difficult. The easiest is to turn your steering wheel so you can remove the three screws in the fender liner then pull the liner back so you can access this area.

Next I used a small flat blade screw driver to go in from the side to about 3 of the snaps. Once that was loosened enough I could pull the existing bezel out. The new bezel simply snaps into place and give the car a new appearance much like the concept camaro.

I just got mine. I'll have to try your method of removal. Unlocking the factory bezels from the front is proving difficult.

The way that the plastic snaps in, it makes it difficult to remove from the front. Just unscrew the fender liner and you can pull that back.

Once I had about 3 of the clips unsnapped (use a small screw driver) and pushed from the back I could pull from the front.

Let me know if you need any assistance.

Thanks so much for sharing your pictures. That's why I love this place!

This was a mod I was considering...but think I will pass now. I love the chrome...but the way it reflects the facets in the lens of the DRLs just make it look like a flush mount larger DRL...with no chrome. I'm sure it looks much better in person without the camera len's illusion.

IMO...this mod would look better on a non-RS style Camaro because the headlamps would match the DRLs.

Thanks again for sharing!

I think you should see them in person. I at first thought I would install the originals now I love them. I have a few other pictures of the car since then. Maybe these help..

They make a big difference, I was thinking about doing that until I decided to paint mine to match my Heritage Grill.

They look like polished and not chrome on the concept.

I agree. Can anyone verify whether they were polished or chrome on the concept? Just curious.
