LT lighting thoughts?

Thinking about adding some LED's on the LT. Thoughts on this? Has anybody else considered or done this as a farkle? Possibly in the cooling vents?

The ride is the objective, the destination is an excuse

Re: LT lighting thoughts?

Yes sir...

I placed two blue LED strips in the cooling cowl. Switch activated. I also put two yellow LED pods for "down" lights that I use for dark parking lots. Also switch activated. I have two red LED strips as side markers just behind the passenger. I have two rear facing LED strips as running lights on the chrome over piece on the skid bar as well as two red LED turn signal strips in the same section. I have also placed two yellow LED strips in the right and left turn signal housing to give the turn signals a wig-wag look.

It's well lit... and actually, not as gaudy as you would think..

When it comes to Farkles I (and many others will agree) believe Ari "the Farkle-Freak-Finn" Ignatius to be the top of the list..Uncle mark is of coarse an honorable mention....

This should get your imagination started.....

Now that he is mentioned....Wait for it, he will come!!!

Want some pics in the dark? I just ran out and took these pics in my garage with just the bike lights on. Just like Christmas, huh?
