In this guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of installing these lights, ensuring a successful and professional outcome. Follow our instructions carefully to achieve the desired results.



The LED DRL Boards + Demon Eye lights are a popular choice for Camaro enthusiasts looking to enhance the appearance and functionality of their vehicles. These lights offer vibrant color-shifting LEDs and a demon eye feature, providing a unique and eye-catching look.


Tools and Materials Required

Before we begin the installation process, make sure you have the following tools and materials ready:

  • Slot screwdriver
  • Dremel tool with a straight wheel and cut-off wheel attachments
  • Torx 20 and Torx 10 bits
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Zip ties
  • Silicone sealant (outdoor-rated)
  • Alcohol and microfiber cloth
  • Vacuum cleaner


Step 1: Removing the Headlight Housing

To access the headlights, we need to remove the headlight housing. Follow these steps:

  1. Start by disconnecting the negative terminal of your vehicle's battery for safety.

  2. Locate the nine spring clips around the outside bezel between the glass and the housing. Gently pop them up using a slot screwdriver.

  3. Cut through the adhesive from GM, which can be quite thick in some spots, especially the corners. Use a Dremel tool with a straight wheel to separate the glass from the housing. Be cautious and cut away from the glass, keeping the clear lip intact.


Step 2: Installing LED DRL Boards

Now, let's proceed with the installation of the LED DRL Boards:

  1. Remove the diffuser from the headlight housing by unscrewing the Torx screws. Disconnect the wiring harness for the daytime running lights (DRLs).

  2. Mount the LED DRL Boards onto the diffuser. Ensure proper alignment and secure them using the provided screws.

  3. Reattach the diffuser back into the headlight housing, aligning the mounting points. Secure it in place with the Torx screws.

  4. Connect the wiring harness for the DRLs to the LED lights. Ensure a secure connection.


Step 3: Installing Demon Eye Lights

Next, let's proceed with the installation of the Demon Eye lights:

  1. Locate the area in the headlight housing where the Demon Eye lights will be installed. This is usually at the top of the housing.

  2. Remove any adjuster mechanisms or fasteners that obstruct the installation area. Use a screwdriver or pliers to detach them.

  3. Secure the Demon Eye lights in the designated area. Ensure proper alignment and use zip ties to hold them in place securely.

  4. Reassemble the headlight housing by reattaching the adjuster mechanisms or fasteners that were removed earlier. Make sure everything is properly secured.


Step 4: Wiring and Cleanup

Now, let's take care of the wiring and perform some cleanup:

  1. Plan the path for your wires, ensuring they are clear of any screw holes or obstructions. GM usually provides wire guides along the bottom of the housing.

  2. Use a step bit to create a hole near the bottom of the housing, away from any electrical components. This hole will serve as the exit point for your wires. Be mindful of the size, ensuring it clears the wiring harness.

  3. Feed the wires from the Demon Eye lights through the hole, leaving the chip facing forward inside the housing.

  4. Apply a generous amount of outdoor-rated silicone sealant around the hole to create a watertight seal.

  5. Clean the edges of the housing using alcohol and a microfiber cloth, removing any debris or residue.

  6. Use a vacuum cleaner to ensure the interior of the housing is free from any loose particles.


Step 5: Final Assembly

We are now ready to put everything back together:

  1. Carefully align the headlight housing and the glass. Press them together, allowing the silicone sealant to bond.

  2. Reattach the spring clips around the housing, ensuring a secure fit.

  3. Wipe off any excess silicone sealant using a clean cloth.

  4. Reconnect the negative terminal of your vehicle's battery.
