Sema grille
 
So I ordered a sema grille from American Authority in white so I can spray paint the inserts yellow to match my car. Well apparently the inserts light up. AA didnít say anything in the description about the grille lighting up. I canít find anything on the internet to even see what an illuminated sema grille even looks like. So does any one have a illuminated sema grille so I can see how it looks?

I have a SEMA grille and nothing lights up but the DRLs do move across from the old one to the SEMA one I think (I'm in the UK where don't have the grille DRLs installed).

Painting the inserts should be pretty easy I would think.

Wait so you guys donít have the bottom DRLís?? And I found a video on what I was talking about now: https://youtu.be/KD9b6eG7CSo

I just didnít expect for mines to light up. I just thought it was a plain white colored one. But yeah spray painting them was easy and itís getting installed at a shop right now.

Europe and Asia get no separate DRLs on their specific Camaro models, only those built into the headlights plus two holes where we have ours, I'm not exactly sure why.

Some regulations I do know about (for example, amber turn signals that cannot share space with brake lights, turn signals on the side, pedestrian protection that disqualifies the ZL1 1LE), but this one is weird, when so many other Euro cars have multiple DRL elements, too.

Sorry, kind of a bad picture but you get the idea. I emailed American Authority and they actually sell the LED inserts but with no warranty on the LEDs, they were $60. Hope this helps!

That looks bad ass. I shouldíve told the guy to wire them up but since I painted them I didnít think it would shine bright enough. But they look pretty bright so maybe I was wrong lol Iím waiting on my splitter now 😋

Agree. I could probably fit them but it would then not pass UK inspection laws. :(
