Tim Allen was the first to get one from Cadillac for his concept TAD CTS. We're still having problems getting them:mad: Notice the TAD headlight treatment.

"14 inch bremCO brake"

"a belt driven turbo.."
that means a centrifugal supercharger.
Kael,
Interesting video. I had not seen that. I'm sure that's pretty old as Tim Allen never got off the ground with the TAD. Tim even shut down his website on the TAD. Unfortunate in that he had some good ideas.

I used black vinyl. It's available in lotsa colors.
Humm, yea I recall when you had it done. The "eyelid" look is definatly more agressive. But I wonder how hard it would be to find some silver vinyl that matches "light platinum" just right. Where did you pick yours up from Robert? I might try it and take a few pictures, see how I like the look. Cheap mod

Hey robert how much work was it to do that light thing. Did you cut the vinyl yourself? and did it just stick rite on there or you used something else?

Thanks

Yes, I cut it with an xacto knife. I have a template I made if you wanna cut your own. PM an address.;) I also did the rear tail lights the same way.

I tried the TAD headlight treatment on my CTS.

Hey Robert,
What are the "high beam fogs" in you tag line? Did you disable the feature that shuts down the fogs when you hit the high beams? Was it had to do?

It's a pretty easy Mod. You replaced the Fog bulb with the OEM High Beam bulb. It uses the same socket. Here's some pics of the two bulb types and where they reside inside the wheel well.

Sport grille looks nice. Thanks for the eyelid mod - I like the look and may do it myself.

If you can't find the vinyl to match go to a body and paint shop and have them painted to color match the car. My dad and my brother both have a 300C (which i dont like) and they both did that to their tail lights. The lights still go thru the paint but when the tail lights are off the car looks like it got no tail lights.
