I am not familiar with dual filament LEDs strips. The flexible led light array that radiantz sells has resistors on the strip.


Are you talking about making your side marker running lights into turn signals also?

If you want turn signals you are better off buying a 4.99 Dual intensity circuit...
Radiantz sells a dual intensity circuit that lets you run running lights and turn signals on one led strip.

AAC sells the exact same thing for 4 times the price.. RIPOFF!

You'd need one circuit per light I believe....or one per side (left and right) if you want both front and rear to be signals, but using one per side means you'd need to splice the front and rear together to connect to the dual intensity circuit. One per light would be easier but obviously a bit more money.

Man how'd you get that effect? Did you paint the markers? I like how that LEDs are the only things you see. How'd you make that effect?

Read from the first page. This entire thread is about how he did it and how to "do it yourself" (DIY).

since you used the orig lenses, couldn't you have just used white LEDs?

or do they offer white?

seems like they would be even brighter.....

Not even sure if they offer white. I wanted the colored LED's to help with the sharpness of the color. Does that make sense?

What LEDs did you get at Radiantz?

The only 100 Led per foot i see is the Z-Flex Leds and they come with a tube.

Did you get these and just take out the LED strip?

Thanks
