Knocked off some things i wanted to get done in the past few weeks.


Bought all items from Crakalac337 on instagram. Hit him up if youre interested. Walked me through everything. My instagram if you care to follow is Papawsdadillac

Both were easy to do, just tedious. Things like pulling off rear bumper or dropping rear headliner. Mirror is probably my favorite mod to date. Can operate it in camera mode or like a normal mirror. Can zoom, adjust up and down, its neat.

Next month ill knock out the OEM folding mirrors.

Cheers

I've always had a soft spot for OEM goodies that came on later model cars, or cars in other countries. I've had my rear fog on for a couple years, no probs. Crak is on here too, Crakavelli I think his username is, or something. Super nice and super helpful.

Power folding/heated mirrors would be sweet, wish USDM's had come with them. I would still like to add the gas door locking mechanism, which I think he also did. The rear view mirror is definitely a fun toy. Nice work dude.

Id love the gas door too, funny we were talking about it yesterday, said it would be a pita on a sedan. His words are wise, if he tells me its too tough I stop with interest right there. If im having an issue and he says its easy do it this way im all for it because he's never steered me wrong.

You and me have similar taste. Im going for an oem+ build which is my rendering of how it should have come. Doing such isn't cheap or easy as im ready to rip a dealer on the phone when im done typing this lol.

For sure man, OEM+ has been my modding style with my cars as well. First my Accord coupe, which I did do heated PFM's on (thanks to another wiring guru), and now the ATS. Crak and I did talk about the locking fuel door, I forget what we said now but perhaps whatever he told you is the reason I didn't end up pursuing it lol. My 21 year old Honda came with a locking fuel door, it's crazy to me a 2014 Cadillac did not.

Glad you ended up putting these parts on your car, I remember somewhat recently you were thinking about selling them instead. I love the way the factory frameless mirror design looks, but the camera mirror you have is a neat function.

What are you having to rip the dealer about? Is your car giving you problems? I finally encountered my first serious issue, need a new radiator as mine is leaking.

When Crakalac did his IP and steering wheel centre pad I was like w😀w. Then he also upgraded the rearview mirror and side mirrors too and I went full 😍.

Wish I had the stones to tackle one or two of these upgrades. Say, I'm curious- what are the upgraded rearview and side mirror hardware costs?

Out of respect for Lee ill have to refer the questions on pricing to him.

The upgrades so far are actually super super simple. Just tedious - removing rear bumper or dropping headliner for example. Easy just time consuming

I talked to several dealers when I was looking for my OEM kit, 95% of the people I talked to didn't even know there were OEM kits for the ATS. In fact they didn't even know what a ground effects kit or a lip kit is. Anyway hope you get fixed up.

$800ish for mirror screen and antenna camera in black, custom colors cost extra

Thanks, its proving to be the single hardest part for my build checklist. To the point its annoying lol

I've tried looking
Try LKQ and Partshub, but I think you should double check carpart. I just saw one that should have the side skirts, because it does have the front and rear ground effects trim. Its just very difficult to see the side view, for 95$ its a great deal, and you could probably plasti dip or wrap both side for less than 200$ to paint match. Good luck.

Well I called and the rocker moldings are gone off the car. Guy on phone doesn't know what happened to them. Nice guy tho. And appreciate him checking before just making the sale. The hunt continues

Its good that they double checked, and despite not having the parts, seems like a positive experience.

This is the best I could do, this possbily might be the Ground effects rocker, looks very similar. Also they have a salvage ats with Ground Effects Bumper, and I am pretty certain it has the rockers as well. There are also some ATS-V models that have the ground effects rocker panel.



Good Luck.

Nothing i could find through the 4 that company has. The ats v and the accessories rockers are similar but the atsv flares out at the front for the wider fenders
