Was checking back in on your build. Your Impala looks great. Love the headlights and those tails are awesome. Red is a great color on the 8th gen. The red interior trim was a great success. Has a modern sport look inside and out. Congrats on the new Tahoe. I have a 13 Burb. I don't dig the new body style. The interior is nice but the outside is too boxy. The door mirrors are WAY too small on the 15's. Wouldn't want to pull my trailer w those tiny mirrors. I worked on the launch of the 07 body style of the Tahoe, Yukon, Suburban, and Escalade in Arlington, TX. I loved em the first time I saw a finished pilot. The 6 speed tranny was added in 09. That was the single best upgrade the body style saw. You have two very nice rides.

Thanks for the comments! Yeah the 'Hoe is really nice! She's fully loaded with leather, MyLink, sunroof, all that stuff. Really cool, man! You got some pics of the 'Burb?

And also the Imp is mine but the Tahoe is my dad's...it's practically mine, however, as I'm always the one to maintain it.

It was the adjustment, I could not find anybody to adjust them and when I did they wanted 80.00 each headlight, it was not worth it to me to throw that kind of money away.

The Anzos have the screws on the top for adjusting projector position....I can't believe that, that's a freakin rip off.

Got pics of the Burb in my garage... It's the wifey's DD. I drive it when I pull or trips back to GA.

Just installed some new Type A Switchback LED turn signals and I gotta say, they're awesome!

Here's the running lights setting



And the turn signal setting (without my halos on)

Looks Good! Do you have a link and did you have to use resistors?

October 11th, 2014:

Did a couple of minor mods this week!

First, painted the plastic piece that surrounds the light controls!



Installed AVS side window deflectors!






And a couple of sidenotes, I FINALLY was able to get the oil leak taken care of! No more leaks!

I also test drove a Chevy SS today....it was a TON of fun!
