as for the third break light I have the 2002 model with the third brake light, here's a photo of the decal I'll be installing http://custombrakelights.com/catalog2/images/Chevrolet_Avalanche_2002-2003.jpg

Thanks, looks good.  But for the smaller style ones.  I dont think any are made for the long ones yet

Headlight and turn signal bulbs... YES
DRL bulbs, not so bad.

I have done quite a few by simply removing the 10mm bolts holding in the top of the grill, and the top 2 on each headlight bucket.
Then you just pull everything out far enough to reach behind and twist out the old DRL bulb and twist in the new one.

This approach works for most people...
but NOT if you look like this!!!!!



Thanks for the info.  I will go buy some at Canadian Tire next time I am there and put them on my work bench.  Give me incentive to do them then.

I'm not sure, but maybe if you contacted the eBay seller they could extend the decal and cut it longer?
But I must say the DRL's where any easy switch on my 2002 cladding body, and it makes the truck look so much better in my option! Only costed me around $6.00 for the DRL's just make sure you get the right pair! Sylvania  :1:

Hi
New owner from Radium Hot Springs BC. 03 NFE black. What method did you use for the black bowtie? Paint flat or semi-gloss?
Thanks 66joej
