Farkle Photo

This is a Peterson Manufacturing 171KA side marker/clearance LED. It is DOT approved, epoxied, and comes hard wired with the grommet. The back seat and plastic control panels on the trunk need to be removed for this project. All I did was drill a 3/4" hole with a spade bit on both sides, pop in the grommets and LEDs, and solder them up to the rear vest outlet which happens to be wired into the accessory side with the radio. They draw 0.04 amps each. The only source I found online for these was foxtaillights.com.

Re: Farkle Photo

How visable are they tucked into that recess like that?

Re: Farkle Photo

It surprised me how easy they are to see from the sides. While they are mounted at an angle, the brightness is high enough to make them quite useful.

Re: Farkle Photo

Looks nice, but one question does the truck match your bike by luck or choice

Just by luck. I also have a blue Taurus that's almost the same color.
