You will need everything except for the vacuum actuators and the other vacuum equipment. There is one small overcenter spring that is not used on the hinge that is shown in the DSE instructions.

you also need RS fenders or just the brackets if they are available separate for 69. The outer edge of the H/L bucket attaches there. I could have shown you the difference when you were here had I known. I had most of the RS linkages hanging in the garage when you came by.

Genaro,

Do a search on here (RS Headlight Doors) and you will get a wealth of information that has been published by guys who have bought the complete RS kit to those that have fabracated their own setup including those who decided to go with electric motors vs vacuum! Lots and lots of information and ideas to consider.

Nothing extra for the right side, Nothing was available new for the right side when I bought my car. I was able to buy both sides used from one car. Pic as purchased.

You need to speak with a gentleman named Bob. AKA BelairBob here on the forums. I did this conversion with the DSE electric kit. Bought it all from Bob as he has a kit put together and ready to ship out. He knew EVERYTHING that needed to be done and he had everything that was needed.

Re: need 69 Camaro Dse r/s headlight conversion info ???

I wanted a High Intensity Discharge kit which is a very cool light and
better visibility especially during night driving. I opted to go with
the single beam HID kit too and love it, they are cheaper on ebay but
I wanted a warranty so I got it here
Sealed Beam
Headlight Kits
, or you can try one of the vendors. Also some of
the forum sponsors selling
Headlight Kits
usually have a sale going on. Either way its a
great system, and very easy to install.
