Impala/Caprice Installation Page 2
You must enlarge this hole to 1.125" to accept the new lamp socket by using a round file or a large drill bit. Somethings you don't want to do:
1) DO NOT - scrap the inside of the dome, it's coated with a reflective paint.
2) DO NOT - go too deep into the opening, you do not want to damage your lens.
3) DO NOT - make the hole too large, check the fit often with the lamp socket provided
Here's the finished hole. Don't worry about the plastic shavings getting inside
your lens, they can be easily be blown out with compressed air or washed out with water, but - besure to let it dry out before reinstalling lamps.
This is what it looks like with the lamp socket installed.
Let's start wiring - Reinstall the lamps on the lens assembly and rest it on the bumper. (use a towel to avoid scratching the paint) Shown is the original lamp socket.
