DIY HUD display car

2010 Chevrolet Camaro HudView Full Gallery

In this day and age, it seems like there are two types of Camaro owners. Those owners who opted to outfit their Camaro with a Heads Up Display (HUD) from the factory or those of us who didn’t and always wished they did. There’s just something about checking your speed, gas gauge, and tachometer without having to look down that makes driving a new Camaro quite enjoyable and, once you’ve experienced that luxury, it’s quite difficult to go back. Unfortunately, not every fifth-gen Camaro shipped from the factory with a HUD and if you’re in the market for a used 2010, or you’re an original owner who didn’t have the option available at the time of purchase, you might think you are out of luck. But fear not fans of the futuristic windshield gauge concept, Heads Up can be yours and it can even be installed in your own driveway with a couple of factory parts and a weekend worth of work, if you’re willing to put in the effort. That said, we should mention up front that this can be quite a daunting task if you’re easily intimidated by making a mess in your new Camaro and it certainly isn’t a modification for the faint of heart. You’re going to have to dig in deep and, at some point, wonder if you’ve made a major mistake.

But, truth be told, we’re quite certain you can handle this install if you’re capable of turning a screwdriver, working a ratchet (in both directions), and unclipping clips. If you’re willing to work slow, take care of your interior pieces, and breathe deep, you can knock this project out in a weekend and be cruising the boulevard with a slick Heads Up Display by midnight. Regarding the parts, that’s the easy part, as you can order almost everything you need from the professional staff at Scoggin Dickey Parts Center without any hassle at all.2010 Chevrolet Camaro Dash Removal On the base level, you will need a HUD unit (PN 92205982), switch (PN 92224604), and a bezel (PN 22758784). To make everything work, HUD swappers will also need a wiring harness, which you can make yourself with a couple of GM connectors (PN 19115655, 92225478), or you can order one online that comes ready to rock and roll, which is what we chose to do. Last but not least, you’ll need to decide on how to mount the HUD, either in your factory dash pad or in an updated HUD specific dash unit. Installing it in your existing dash requires cutting, while replacing it with a pre-cut OEM unit only requires money. Either way can work, it’s just up to the end user to decide how they want to handle it. Oh, and then there is the windshield debate. Factory HUD equipped Camaro’s come with a special windshield that features a specially coated and prepared section for maximum visibility and clarity while using the Heads Up Display. If you’re converting, you need to swap windshields for maximum performance but without that swap, your factory glass will perform well (lets call it 85-percent). Glass and an install is expensive though, so that’s a call you’re going to have to make for yourself. Full coverage insurance with free windshield replacement from a rogue rock chip anyone?

Greg Lovell Camaro Dash RemoveOf course, there is also the option to farm out all of this work to a qualified mechanic, and that’s exactly what we chose to do for our Camaro Now install. AntiVenom EFI in Seffner, FL was an easy choice, and Greg Lovell was quick to get us a list of parts to order from Scoggin Dickey Parts Center and a donor vehicle for the swap. To best match a DIY effort, we chose to forgo the usual comforts of his high-tech shop, choosing instead to tackle the install in his personal garage, using simple hand tools and no lift, just as a typical enthusiast would do. Five hours later, we were rolling in style with a brand new HUD!


1. Installing a Heads Up Display unit in a 2010 or non-optioned ’11-12 Camaro isn’t a particularly difficult task, but it is rather intimidating and tedious. At one point, you’re going to be looking at something like this and probably wondering if it will ever go back together correctly. If you take your time, do your research, and stay patient it will all go back together just fine… trust us.


2. Of course, it didn’t hurt that we had Greg Lovell of AntiVenom in Seffner, Florida working with us on this project, as he is a master fifth-gen Camaro technician capable of handling big projects without even breaking a sweat. As you can see, the first step here was to remove the stock seats (2 bolts) and the center console, which is held in place by two rear screws, two side screws, and two clips.


3. The center console slides out of the way easily, although several wiring connecters will need to be unclipped as you pull the console upwards. The upper shifter assembly and boot must also be removed, to allow room for the console to slide backwards.

4-5. The factory radio and HVAC control panel attaches to the dash with two 10mm bolts (bottom) and then simply unclips from the radio unit. With the panel removed, four 10mm bolts secure the radio in place, which must be slid forward to gain access to the rear wiring harness, which must be unclipped prior to pulling the radio all the way out.


6. It would be impossible to remove the dash with the factory steering wheel in place, which makes it the next item that must be removed. Two spring clips hold the airbag in place, which simply pop inwards with some slight pressure from a long, flat head screw driver. This can be a little difficult to get at first, so make sure you take your time.
