Knight Rider light sunk behind grill for v6 owners. Video and pic. ++Fixed broken vid

As featured on CAMARO5 BLOG.

+++ Aug 12 2011 - Fixing broken vid links... Had this sucker in for a year and its still working like a champ. Love it.... best 25 bucks ever.

Ok first let me say the mail slot light has this hands down but.....this project turned out very well for the money I spent. I had the switches already and I had the wire and zip ties. All it cost was 25 bucks for this mod and I got to tell you the results were better than I expected.

I sunk it behind the grill and the amazing thing is that the light reflects off the squares in the grill and looks very very good.

Watch the video and see for yourself.

Vid link.....







I parked the car on the street for the videos and every who walked by or drove gave me the thumbs up or said how cool that it looked.

Behind the grill shelters it from the rain and gives it a bit of protection. When you have it off the car looks stock and you don't know anything is there until you fire it.

I know this is not for everyone but I drank two beers watching it and I got to say it grows on you. If you don't have a mail slot and you want a light it can be done!

The picture below shows the light cycling to the left. It goes that far on the right also.

Yup.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT


Keep in mind this is not a super high quality light here. I rolled the dice on this and didn't know what to expect.

What it is .... a light that is worth the 25 bucks and if I get a few years out of it fine.

Wizzer.

From what I have seen as of now I would buy it again if it was broken by a rock or something. Basicly it is too cool to not have once you know what you are missing.



He has other colors also if you check his store. It comes from over seas and it took a bit over a week to get.


I am reloading the video on ebay and I will change the link over tomorrow. The sound got jacked and I am fixing it.

Someone needs to figure out how to make this interact with the blinkers. I want one that goes the way I'm getting ready to turn.

I would like to buy this for the mail slot, but it's 25" and the mail slot is 20". I can't find a cheap on like yours that's 20" except for the KITT from the UK for over $200. Nice find for your application.

I love it, but can you turn it on and off? Or is it always on when your car is on? Cuz I'm pretty sure in a lot of states that it is illegal to have flashing lights on your car
