Turn Signal Project?

Was reading Joe's thread on the E-Bay turn signals. Some time ago there was a thread for a winter project of installing LEDs around the perimeter of the LT mirrors. Can't seem to find it. Does anyone remember it?


Thanks

My only recommendation in addition to what I posted is to AIM each led carefully so they are "pointing" where you want them to - this is accomplished by carefully figuring out the angle you drill each hole. If you mount them flat they will be illuminating the bellies of birds instead.

Plan on lots of time to do this!

Many thanks

Shawn: That's the one.

Ron: Thanks for the insight. I'll be careful to sight the LEDs with the proper offset to direct the beam 'aft. Lots of time from now till March (only have to turn the heat on in the garage).
