APEX Rapid Fire-Sequential-After Burner Tail Lights 2012 Camaro
These Tail lights are from http://www.apex-speed.com/Camaro-complete-led-rear-lamps.ht
These are installed on my 2012 Chevy Camaro. The install overall was
fairly simple. It is a plug n' play procedure. Its a matter of taking the
Chrome bezels off the lamps removing 3 (10mm) nuts on each tail lamp.
NOTE: The bottom 10mm on each outer tail light is virtually impossible to
loosen with a socket. Highly recommend a long open end wrench.
After removing the original tail lights its just a matter of running the
provided plug n' play wire harness from one tail light to the other. You
will put each connector through the rubber grommet and plug it all in. The
directions provided are very detailed so need to write an extensive "How
To" Though I would like to make a couple of notes that I feel would be
1) Buy a panel removing tool from your local auto store. Very helpful
removing all the tabs that hold down your tail light covers and carpet.
2) Be very careful removing the chrome bezels. Just push down the top two
tabs and get the bezel to pop out just enough. Then take a small flat head
screw driver out it inside a microfiber towel so you don't scratch them
and slowly walk and twist your screwdriver along the inner part of the
bezles. Very simple! Then they just snap right back in up on completion
3) VERY IMPORTANT! Each tail light comes with little dip switches inside
the lamps to be set for either a normal factory like braking system or
switched so you can have the rapid fire and sequential turn signals. Make
sure they are set to what you want because you will have to take the lights
out to set all your switches! ( I learned this the hard way)
4) Install your original Bulb Sockets onto your new tail lights prior to
installing them it makes life a lot easier..There is not a lot of room to
work with when the lights are installed.
Out side of that its fairly simple, give yourself a couple of hours and
when all is said and done you will have one sweet looking breaking and turn
signal system. Great product, very sharp looking. A great add on to your Camaro.
Thank you Apex!

In this short video we'll show you how easy it really is... How to smoke
tail lights yourself.
Basically, all you have to do is sand your plastic lenses with 1500-2000
grit sand paper. Preferably wet sand.
You'd just get a better cut with wet sanding. Now, some say you need a
adhesive promoter... I think it's a bunch of crap. As long as you sand your
lens, you wont need it.

2005-2011 Toyota Tacoma Ultimate fog lights wiring Jobs vs. Road Salt.
You need to watch this Steve, if you want to know how to wire your fog
light kit professionally. Specially if you live where they use road salt
and want to use the fog lights and headlights at the same time like cars
today can't do. I didn't use any tape or solderless connectors and my work
is above par because they are the weak link. Even if you have to use
solderless connectors. Take off the plastic ends and slip a piece of shrink
tube on them and solder them. Best would be to put a few drops of GE
silicone II over the solder job, and then slip the shrink tube over the GE
silicone and solder job. Making a super air and water tight connection that
salt spray can't get in to corrode. Salt and electric make a electrolysis
that eats your wires up faster
than a 2 year warranted car battery. Can't even tell my work from factory
And it should last longer than the original Headlight wiring Harness from
road salt. Even if you don't have a Toyota, you'll still learn how to
correctly wire things and not waste money. I've wired Harley's Sailboats,
Houses. Its all the same difference, water with a high PH ruins wires. They
even made expensive silicone booted solderless connectors. But nothing
still is as good as my way. That can be your way now. I paid $38 for the
kit with switch, harness, bulbs and two fog lights, on ebay. You might
already have a wiring harness in your Toyota Tacoma for fog lights and only
need to watch my other video on Toyota Fog lights. My guess today is, they
probably took the fog lights off and threw them in the dumpster, cause you
didn't want to pay the $300 dealer sticker price and taped them up so you
can't find em. Don't ask, they all lie today anyway. I got my experience
from living on the eastern seaboard. And examining others ill attempted
wiring jobs that corroded away while they sat in some smelly garage waiting
to get it fixed on the way home from work. You know its dark in winter
after 4:30? Remember now? You don't need your battery light going on yet
to. And Bitching, whining or using fairy dust don't work either. Now I'm
going to wire my sailboat using the same principles. But there they use Tin
coated copper wires, cause, it really does get as bad as I;m trying to
point out. But there I'll smear the common BUS, fuse block connectors, and
switch connectors with enough GE silicone II to cover them. Same stuff they
use to make aquariums my friends. If you want something done correctly, you
got to do it yourself. You don't want your GPS to fail sailing back in
Oyster Bay low tide with over 6 feet of draft:) So this jobs gonna cost you
least $300 in labor anyway. And your point would be? My point is, why did
you go to school anyway? Exactly:) Anyway thanks for all you done for me
youtube. So now your educated in this subject, you know if your gonna
install Projector LED headlights most new cars dont have yet. That's the
point right? Your gonna have to seal the seams with GE Silicone II first Or
they will fog up, right? So that's why you watch these videos of mine. So
to get a big laugh out of those that don't. I do, cause they are nimrods.
"Talk is cheap" So if they say something about negative about me, That's OK
cause I'm positive. I don't want to be anything like their negative energy,
Not one single thing. Pretty sure they're not surgeons. They get credit
where credits due. Thanks for subscribing and watching to.
'67 Crusher Camaro vs '70 Super Bee 1,500-Mile Burnout-Fest! - Roadkill Episode 19
On this episode of Roadkill, it's Freiburger in the Super Bee versus
Finnegan in the '67 Camaro as the guys make the trip
from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City and back to go race at the Midnight
Drags at Rocky Mountain Raceways in hopes of running the Bee on Nitrous for the first time since the Hemi was
installed. Which car will work best over 1,500 miles of mayem in three
The 700hp, blown Crusher Camaro is HOT ROD's longest-term
project car, surviving 20 years at the magazine. David Freiburger's 675hp
Hemi ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is his first car, having been with him 30 years.
Both cars suffer from magazine-project-car syndrome: getting brief spurts
of attention followed by long periods of neglect. For the first time in
years, both cars were running and driving at the same time.
The Crusher Camaro is a
'67 model that was purchased for $700 in 1994 during California's
car-crushing program; it was rescued from the parking lot of a junkyard
where it was about to be handed in for crushing. It's been through a number
of engines in its time at HOT ROD magazine, and the most recent is a 489ci
bi-block (4.280 bore, 4.250 stroke) with 9.3:1 compression. It has a small,
224-at-0.050 Comp hydraulic roller cam, Holley oval-port heads, and a
Weiand 8-71 Supercharger with two Holley
850HP carbs. The engine makes 700 hp and 720 lb-ft on 5 psi Boost, but is tame enough to drive anywhere.
The transmission is a Gearstar 4L85E that's really awesome, and the Ford
9-inch is loaded with 3.50 gears. The car is styled with Center Line Auto
Drags and a nose-high stance to look like a street machine of the early
¹80s. It has run 10.60 at 125 in the quarter-mile in the same trim seen in
Freiburger's ¹70 Dodge Super Bee is powered by a 10:0:1-compression, 484ci
Hemi with ported iron cylinder heads and a Comp solid roller camshaft. It
also uses a Holley Dominator carb on a custom dual-plane intake manifold by
Dick Landy, whose shop built the long-block in 1995. It made 675 hp on the
engine Dyno, but in
the car is has smaller headers, fairly restrictive Exhaust, and a mechanical fan that pull it down
to around 600. The trans is a Gearstar 727 Torqueflite backed by a Gear
Vendors under/overdrive, and the Strange 60 rearend has 3.73 gears (a
little too high for the
natuarally aspirated combo). The car weights 4,050 pounds with the driver,
and has run 11.80 at 118 mph on the motor.
