@g25: Dude, do you REALLY think I'm just gonna take a picture of some random guy? I purposely waited until I saw and met EJ to get that picture. You wanted it and would pay, so I got it, and you pay now!!!

And speaking of fellas, it's been almost a month, and I still don't have that $50 from each of you... If you ARE men of your word, then you'll pay me for future mods for PapaSSmirff. And if you can do it before Saturday, it'll be Birthday money to spend on Papa SSmirff as well. Yes that's right, I said birthday money. Saturday is my birthday, and I'm turning 32 this year.

I think this sums it up:

HAHAHAHA!!!

So as you may have seen in another thread, I finally have the HID's in the car. I got the 6000K's and I love them, with the exception of the shaking they have that is... I ordered 2 sets of replacement bulbs and a second 6000K kit so I can do the fog lights and have spare bulbs. Below is a pic, kinda hard to notice them, but you can kinda tell compared to the glare of a halogen bulb at least...

And I also have another mod that was ordered tonite that should be in the same time. I'll leave it a surprise for everyone until I got it painted and installed on the car. It'll definitely help make Papa SSmirff stand out from all the other Impalas in the area... Stay tuned for more details...

Is the next mod the window scoops?

(I'm guessing because in the other thread you said it's not a physically big item, and here you said you had to paint it)

And no, it's not the window scoops. I was looking at and thinking about those, but decided against them. I didn't care for the look of them, and they'd cover up the ImpalaFroums.com decals on the sides.

I do have to paint it so it'll match the rest of the black on the car better than just the normal plastic matte black it'll come as. Like I said, stay tuned and it'll be revealed soon enough!

But you are close though, I'll give you that much...

Lights look good!

And yeah, I don't care for the window scoops either.

Yes, it IS going to be the hood scoop. I wanted to wait to reveal which one I was getting until I bought it so I made sure I got one. I have horrific luck when it comes to getting stuff like certain parts and they either being out of stock or discontinued before I can actually get one.

But HERE is the one I'm getting, and the only one that would look right on these cars IMHO. Not to mention, the cheaper yet still good looking alternative to the $800 hood... Granted, it's shown on a Monte SS, but it gives you the idea since the Impala nose and hood is the same...

Nope. And it'd have to be the right set of fender vents before I even consider it. The last thing I was thinking of putting fender vents on was the '92 Typhoon I had. I was looking at taking a set of the 6.6L Trans Am fender scoops and doing them on the very front of the Ty's fenders, but I didn't have the truck long enough to accomplish that goal.

And besides, the ONLY thing I got slated for going on the fenders - IF I can find the right ones of course - is a set of badges/emblems that say "LS4 5.3L V8". I found a set for the LS3 in the style I want, but they don't have and can't do them in the LS4 yet. I even emailed the place that EJ posted for getting the SS badge overlays, and they said they couldn't do them either.

But since the scoop will be going on it, I'll have to see if I want something like that on the side of the scoop, or on the fenders. But I'll post pics of it when I get it and when I get it on the car.

On a side note: I noticed something last night with the damn HID's. I had tried seating them in the headlight assembly differently (locking them in the headlight by spinning the bulbs) to see if that was the issue, and it wasn't... But what I DID notice and it kinda surprises me, is that they shake/bounce when the car isn't even on and running. And when I looked at them, the bulbs themselves don't move, but it seems that whatever is making them jump/bounce is coming from inside the bulb or coming from the ballasts. I'm going to contact the place I got them from and have them give me another set since they have a 6 month warranty.

So can anyone tell me if I need to install the white plastic ring that comes on the bulbs when I lock them into the headlight assembly? It seems it wouldn't hurt, because the bulbs seem a little loose in the headlight assembly when mounted like the normal halogen bulbs are. Not loose to the point where they're ready to fall out, but loose enough that they don't sit in there snug like they should be...
