I haven't been here in awhile! I was out of state for some military stuff and while I was gone I was seriously contemplating on holding off on modding the Impala to save up for a 2012-2014 Caprice PPV! But coming home and getting back to her I enjoy this car too much and not to mention parts are cheap and repairs are easy with this car. Since I've been back I scored a few deals at the scrap yard:

I'll have to take a few pics tomorrow, I'm not sure if I'm liking the black SS/LTZ type spoiler on my car. I may be painting that soon (more than likely I will lol). I also went back to stock taillights. The led's started to hyperflash lately and I don't want to bother with load resisters, so off they go!

Nice pick up, you always find what you are looking for at junkyards :eek:k3:

What do you plan on doing with the LEDS tail lights? :devil

I think if you put the SS spoiler on then il go ahead and throw on the lip spoiler on mine.

I, for one, am glad that I never purchased the LED "light bar" taillights. Personally, I just don't like the look when installed and they seem kind of cheap to me. I do, however, love my professionally-tinted stock taillights though (as most of you know, I'm not a big LED fan - at least not on this car, which was not designed for LEDs).
@silver4door - if I were you, I'd take the stock headlights to a body shop and get them professionally-tinted. So much nicer than the rattle-can tint that you do yourself. The finish is *so* glossy and it *stays* super glossy over time (without needing to polish them for days, which fades over time anyway). Very durable finish. And the look so awesome tinted...

I have no use for the LED tails now, you want them?

Yeah I'm actually really satisfied with the stock taillights now that they are back on. I was thinking about getting them professionally tinted with vinyl because I want it to be just a tad bit dark, to the point to were most people couldn't tell it was tinted unless they saw another impala next to mines.

If @1impalavision1 doesn't take them, I might. Depending on price. Swapping of the LED's would be simple. Cut them open with a hot knife and reseal.

Now that I think about it, if they hyper flash with the built in resistors more then likely it will need more then a PNP resistor.
