    I did it Frontend Conversion

    I did the conversion, but I'am having some issues with the lights. Everything works fine when the car is off. But when I start the car or turn the ignition switch on the headlights open and the lowbeams come on. But no dash lights, like it is daytime running lights. Any ideas? I also have a set of black 18" C6 wheels.. The color is 1993 Vivid Canary..

    INMY01TA Here is the under hood pic, Still needs alittle cleaning, some over spray..

    That was what I thought, if that was true, If I had the E-brake set before I turn the ingnition on they would not come on and they do. This car is a 1997, And I also Have a 30th ann. Z and that is how they work..

    I finally figured the lights out, it was the DRL relay, behind the radio. Had a burnt board. The lights coming on with the ignition is a failsafe....
