    Yes, everything as you see it is intact with the exception of the defrost trim panel that snaps into place on the top of the carrier. There isn't a metal plate in there. Which picture are you referring to? The white insulation comes up through the cutout but actually covers the left hand side of the plastic HUD housing. If that insulation wasn't there, all you'd see is the remainder of the HUD assembly visible through the cutout.

    Does this have anything to do with a rear camera? C360_2013-05-10-15-21-27-861.jpg

    These cars NEVER had a back up camera. No way to add one to a factory system. Period.

    Correct

    The export SLS has a camera you can use or aliexpress sells SLS add on cameras which will work but you'll need a display.

    Re: Project HUD

    Here are some close ups I took of the window, not sure if they will be useful or not but I figured they couldn't hurt.

    All are very large resolution so you may want to open them in a new tab to get full size.

    This is a diagnostic connector for the Ultrasonic Rear Park Assist system.

    Re: Project HUD

    Hope your HUD project is working good! I love to see how people can adapt different accessories to their car. My first Cadillac was a 75 Sedan de Ville d' Elegance that is still probably my favorite Cadillac. It came with the Twilight Sentinel option but not the Auto High Beam dimming option. I got all the parts for the Auto Dimming option at a wrecking yard & installed them into my car & it worked perfectly! Something so fulfilling about it!

    If you do get your HUD to work, you will most likely have to replace your windshield. I had to replace the windshield on my car a few years ago & I told the insurance co. they had to replace it with a factory windshield because of Rainsense & the HUD. Sure enough, they did not listen to me & when I got my car back, Rainsense did not work properly & my HUD reflection was blurry as heck! They allowed me to order my own windshield from GM & there were 2 available. One with HUD & one without HUD. I'm guessing the one with HUD is "more polished" in the area where the HUD is reflected. Hopefully yours will be different!

    I think it's actually got polarization to improve the HUD.

    AFAIK, any type of projection on glass requires a polarized area.

    Re: Project HUD

    As noted early in the thread and in the many HUD upgrades on various places on the web, most automotive glass will work but better results involve additional measures; the best results can get expensive. Nothing new there.

    So just a little update

    Found a donor car at local yard and have started to assemble everything. 1st up my conversion harness.



    I was happy to find the HUD only uses 7 wires. 4 come from the info control switch the other 3 are ground and gm LAN low speed which both come from SP201 and last is a 12v power source which is supposed to come from the front fuse box but I will be tapping into the rear to avoid running wire in the engine bay.

    As the picture shows I already have the proper info switch plug (not the same as non hud cars) and the HUD projector plug wired together.

    Next step will be getting some terminal leads to connect into the factory SP201 on the passenger side left part of the dash and then to the fuse box so in theory there should be no cutting or splicing into the factory wiring.

    The most difficult part will obviously be removing the dash carrier, cutting it out for the HUD display and hoping everything works and displays properly through the HUD without any needed programming to the other modules.

    I would think you would have to enable the HUD via a tech 2 otherwise I would bet the car isn't going to broadcast the info it is going to pick up from the LAN bus.

    I thought the same thing. However daddler shut off the RPO in his system and it still provided full data to the HUD.

I can tell you that the car will set a DTC for an incorrect number of modules detected on the data bus if options are not set correctly. I'm not certain exactly what other functions the configuration information controls, in light of this new information.
    See above

    Daddler does shutting off DRL in the IPM turn off the amber turn signals during the day?
