thats funny, i was just thinking that today on the highway, i currently have a single led strip (3 leds), but if i ran a 2nd wire with 1 led and ran it to say the door ABL lighting. then the single led (soft glow) would come on at night, and then when i turned on the blinker, the 3 leds would come on (bright glow), hummmm.

Lupe, have you ran across any other lighting options with LEDs? As of right now, all I have with LEDs is footwell, ambient lighting in the console and the side mirror turn signal, thanks to you of course, and i would like to expand with the LEDs.

Anyone know what size the nuts are that hold the mirror on? I don't have any deep sockets that are fitting.... 10mm maybe?

I'll give it a go this weekend. Hopefully running the wire through the door isn't as difficult as it looks! I have the wires ran into the cabin already, so at least that's 1/2 the battle!

Side Mirrors with Flashing Turn Signals
updated 10-29-10

well here is a little experiment so far so good, trying different lighting options, using red LED's. let me know what you think, camera is not that great, it looks brighter than it really is.

ok got them done, 1st video is at night, again camera not that great, the lights look brighter than they really are in the night video. you can tell when you see the tail lights, obviously they are not that bright either.

2nd video is during the day, they look pretty much like the video.



Lupe








GREAT JOB!!! I like it!

Hello, I ran mine throught the firewall ( with the existing wire harness) and tapped right into the front blinkers. I hope someone out there has a wiring diagram so we can find the wires that run along the door sill to the rear of the car. That would make so much easier.
