Rims & Headlamps
Ok I have two questions.
1. Anyone know where I can get the blue headlights for the trans am
I just ordered Halo fog lamps and I don't want my headlamps to have that dull color while the fog lamps are looking good
2. Whats strong that I can use to clean my rims
Their black with a chrome lip and the chrome lip is HIT
I scrub and scrub it with all different types of rim cleaner and soap but I cant get it clean
I need something very strong because whatever it is on my rims isn't coming off. It just looks dirty but it wont come off like regular dirt

I looked around for blue lamps, but could not find any. Instead, I ordered a HID conversion kit. It cost like $350, but they are really bright. Go to www.ledgauges.com thats where i got themTSP Torquer V2 cam, ported heads,fast 90/90 combo, LT's, 3400 stall, magnaflow CB, most other bolt ons, full suspension, t-top and HID conversion

I would try a clay bar on the wheels. I'm not sure what kind of dirt you are talking about, but a clay bar can do wonders.

Dude, you gotta go with HID lowbeams up front!
Just low beam 10000K's on
10000k fog/driving lights on (Hella Micro DE's)

I would look into some kind of chrome polish or cleaner. Sounds like its in the chrome and not just surface dirt.

I got my set on eBay. I paid about $250 for the set. It's a snap to install them; direct swap. This is like the kit I purchased. So far, works like a charm!

definately going to look into that.... so its just plug in play?

try some brake cleaner. i used it when everthing else failed and it worked for me.

Here are a couple shots of my install:
Here's how easy it is.
(1) Disconnect the lowbeam bulb from the car's power wire
(2) Connect the car's power wire into the ballast
(3) Connect the power wire FROM the ballast to the HID bulb
(4) Insert the HID bulb into the headlight housing
(5) Find a suitable place near the headlight to mount the HID ballast
(6) Repeat installation for the other lowbeam bulb
It really is that simple. Just follow the instructions included.
Happy HID lighting!!!

Yeah, apparently, they're becoming harder to come by. I've been hearing about more and more Camaro owners going this route; specifically Camaros because the Firebirds have a different headlight setup. For our cars, again, it's a direct swap.

Try using black magic cleaner/polish on the lip and see how it works.

Still need help with this
I tried chrome polish/cleaner by turtle wax and it didnt work
I tried SOS pad it didnt work
Rim cleaner didnt work.
The brake cleaner is the only suggestion I haven't tried yet i guess thats next

now for the hid s, since the led.com sell s for 250 and i think i saw a new halo assemebles with hid for like lil over 300 whats the best way to go

I would have to look but I don't think hid's are plug and play for the firebirds like they are for the camaros.
have you tried eagle one never dull on your rims? A local guy had some rims in bad shape and said that stuff made them look like new again. Might want to give it a shot.

I just ordered the HID kit from ledgauges.com myself. Orion is right. Most headlight conversion kits for a Firebird\Formy\T/A require cutting and crimping/soldering. Nothing impossible by the looks of it. There is a cool install write-up on the ledgauges.com website for our cars. Everything is better than our crappy sealed beams IMO. I would have even gone for the Silverstars from Sylvania if they made them for my car.
