Steve, I'm not so sure about the front fender. The '99 has a simpler design, but there might be somewhere to mount an LED string. I really like your idea of illuminating the radiator area. What about the front cowl for the oil cooler? The radiator exhausts should be easy enough. Mine has some floor/foot boards, so I was thinking of outlining them w/ some amber LEDS/string lighting, or maybe just stick something on the bottom side for that glowing affect of yours. I think I just realized what you're talking about re: the area between the trunk case and side cases. That'd be cool, too.
I have a ZZ trailer, so naturally, that's gotta have something. Depending how much gap, if any, there where the lid closes, maybe I can provide some illumination through the gap with the effect of a thin line of light going around the trailer. Can definitely illuminate the fenders on the trailer. Maybe a string on the trailer's tongue? There's also the little cooler mounted in front of the trailer- perhaps a thin string outlining the base of it? I thought about mounting a couple of motorized rotational spot lights on top of it, but that'll probably remain in the concept stage.
BTW, there is at least one thread on this forum where someone has managed to illuminate the wind deflectors by attaching a light to the end in such a way where it glows around the edges, I think. Same concept of fiber optics, where the light travels inside of the strands. I haven't seen how the successful of achieving the desired results. Also costly, if those things break in process.
The turn signal mirrors are cool. I can't remember if I've already bought some, but I have seen some inexpensive alternatives to the several hundred dollar ones.
We'll have to post some pics once we're done.
