Hey guys...I have an overstock of Killer Light

http://www.mcspeed.homestead.com/Our_Products.html

Precision Machined brackets.

While these supplies last, I am running a blow out sale.

$25 plus $5 (USPS Priority shipping) for the BRACKETS ONLY - no hardware.

See the picture below for the hardware items you would need to supply:

bolts/nuts
washer
spacers (which can be cut down from a tube or stacked with washers to get 3/4")
bumpstops (90 degree aluminum or steel bracket)
rivets

You can either go to GMparts direct for the one stop shopping part number on the electronic pieces, or work through your local dealer for new ones. A lot of guys are having a ton of success cruising ebay and the forums picking up used parts.



Drop me a PM if you are interested for payment and shipping instructions.

I don't have the link sorry. I picked up 2 Firebird motors and the control module from eBay and a C4 headlight switch from Ecklers. Chris got the pigtails for me from GMpartsdirect. Did you check on his website for the numbers?

I've converted mine and they work a treat. No more chasing bloody vacuum leaks!
If you have a good working stock setup what is the advantage of going this route???
Big weight savings?
What would a complete cost be for this conversion??
Again Why go to the trouble??

:crazy:

That's like asking...why install EFI over a carb?

Why go to a 18" rim when you could have a 17" rim?



Why repaint the car red it was originally black?

Why replace the stock steering - brakes - springs, gauges, clutch.......

The truth is the total cost is under $700 to replace everything NEW, and well under $300 if replaced with uses - ebay, etc.

If you count the weight of the vacuum can on the early sharks (that can removed once this is installed) - is is almost half the weight of a full stock system.

It can be repaired/serviced anywhere late model Corvette headlight actuator parts are sold (any GM dealer - with parts in stock).

It is a natural progress of the VETTE rod and moving away from things that have to be in near perfect mechanical order (vacuum system) to function right.

Do you guys have a way to put the whole kit together for purchase ? Switches actuators etc. ?

Anything for the "windshield wiper" door ? 69 has it vacuum actuated.

Yes - but is usually better to pick up the parts from you local deal in the rare case there is any electronic problem. I can't save you any money there either since I don't get a wholesale price on the GM parts to pass on.

I can walk you through a wiper door if you go that route. I have converted several of them - its really no big deal to do, as it follows the same electronics as the headlights.
