Fender Side Vent Turn Signal

Hey All,

When I get bored I try to keep busy and sometimes my car pays for this lol

I decided to see how this would look and ended up doing it. I have gotten several complements at red lights on this but Im still ehh about it. What do you all think?

A bit excessive on the number of LEDs, but cool.

It was an led strip lol. Planning on redoing it with an led strip that has two colors... like white and red. white for the parking light and turns to red for turn signal. IDK just thinking out loud

I like it. Though, it really does emphasize the difference between "instant-on" LEDs and the incandescent bulbs in the tail lights.

Really cool!!

Now all you have to do is a write up of the how-to with all of the specifics incase anyone wants to do this install. Well done.

hey... I did that to my SKY years ago and they still look great. LED Strips wired to the turn signals. Also have the sequential turn signal modules for the back indicators.

I found multi function LED strips online a while ago for tailgates. Dim red led for parking, bright red for stop, and amber for turn. I am trying very hard to find them again because that would really be nice lol.

For legality i asked a regular group of cops that get custom work done on their bikes and cars at my shop and they told me because they were rear facing i wouldn't get in trouble. but atleast thats orlandos opinion. Not sure what other counties and cities might say about them.

If Orlando’s law enforcement especially Orange county’s finest here in Florida say it’s alright to have those lights then the whole world is save in doing so…. Them high-way meter maids are tough to satisfied!
