Post American Autowire 68 Camaro RS conversion pics?

Hello everyone, its been awhile since I have posted but my project is back on finally with my 68 RS and I just purchased a complete american autowire update kit and was wondering if anyone has done this and if you might have any pictures documenting the conversion. I am pretty confident that I can pull it off as the directions are pretty easy and straight forward but I am definately a visual learner and like to have pictures when it comes to a task as tedious as this might be. If noone has any pics, maybe you could offer any tips or suggestions that made your conversion easier or any do's and do not's. I apologize if this has been addressed already but I did do a search and didn't find anything. So far I am very impressed with the kit and can't wait to get started and get it done. Thanks in advance!

Re: American Autowire 68 Camaro RS conversion pics?

I bought the exact same kit for my 68 (non-RS) and just finished the restoration last week. The only problems that I had were with my left front blinker. I'm fairly certain that it's "another" grounding issue but haven't had the time to address it yet. Other that that I loved the kit. They give you plenty of wire to run things exactly how you want them and every wire is labeled.
What specifically do you want pictures of?

I am about to begin the same conversion from standard to RS, what modifications are needed for the front fenders to install the head light assemblies?
