    I do remember Automotive Lighting Customs posting on Facebook to “watch this space” but that was like 6-7 months ago. I did send a Facebook message to them but never got a response

    Mate your instructions worked like a charm, very clear on steps basically idiot proof.

    Thanks

    The only thing i did notice is with the controller hooked up now the DRL’s arent as bright during the day as they used to be prob due to lower voltage out put through controller.

    I never noticed that, get someone to turn the headlights on and off for you and watch the drls and just make sure they change brightness when you cycle the headlights on/off.
    they should only dim while the headlights are on.
    sometimes the drl controller from ebay can be faulty, I have binned a few for various faults.

    Does anyone have the wire/pin diagram for the plugs that are separated (one of which has the red clip that is pulled down) in the right side of the bumper? I would like to use the Gen5DIY harness and modify this rather than cutting my wires. I think that the wire locations for the 2017 Chevrolet SS are different to ours and I may have to modify their harness.

    I sent Automotive Lighting Customs a facebook message a couple of weeks ago. He replied saying all the remaining parts he needed to do it have now arrived he just needs to get around to making some.

    If a few people annoy him like i have it might move him along a bit faster ;)

    I actually messaged them this week, not knowing about you guys previously talking to them, he said 2 weeks should have virtually a plug and play harness with one wire to tap in.... (My guess is the fuse tap wire.) either way, sounds good.

    They posted this on their Facebook page. 3 options. I think a little expensive seeing the eBay DRL modules do the job just fine, but understandable not everyone is up to cutting/splicing.

    Cheers @3repecb.
    It is expensive but me and electronics have a very bad relationship so would rather not cut any wires if possible

    So I sent off a Facebook message to automotivelightingcustoms asking about the opinion 3 DRL harness (completely plug and play) and I got a message back saying there’s about a 3-4 week wait as he is building them all by hand.
    So I put down a deposit and I’ll update in about 3-4 weeks
