AFTERBURNER TAIL LIGHTS DIY


AFTER BURNER AND RS TAIL LIGHTS PROJECT

AFTER BURNER HALO KIT: $160 WITH SHIPPING FOUND THEM IN A CLASSIFIED AD
RS TAIL LIGHTS: TRADED SOME STUFF FOR THEM VALUED AT $60
TOTAL COST $240
SPECIAL THANKS TO KENDELL CHIN AND TJ NEW ROCK

PROJECT NOTES: A 220 LB ( HUSKY) MAN DOES NOT FIT IN THE TRUNK OF A CAMARO
-MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD GROUND THIS CAN EFFECT THE BRIGHTNESS OF THE LEDS
-TIME CONSUMING PROJECT
- BE CAREFULL WHILE CUTTING THE RED LENSES ITS EASY TO MESS THEM UP
-THERE IS A WAY TO DO THIS WITH OUT REMOVING THE BUMPER AS IN THE YOUTUBE VIDEO WE FOUND THIS TO BE EASIER

ADDITIONAL TOOLS
-DRILL
-SANDER









REPEAT THIS PROCESS ON THE OTHER TAIL LIGHTS

Here is my version. I got mine from Oracle, but they came as a tube instead of an LED strip. I still like the look.
