    ok, so i understand how they work. what is the difference in color. if i am mounting in brake light, should the strobe be red? or directional should it be amber? or reverse light should it be clear?

    if your mounting it in a "colored lens " like a brake light, then jsut order the clear , -- they are a little brighter, and could be moved to a different veheical or location if needed

    if your mounting them in a "clear lens" like a back up ligh t, or head light , then you might consider getting colored strobes or leds

    Im hearing that with the LED hideaways you actually want to match the LED with the color of the lense you are putting it behind. Red led with red (tail light) lens. It has something to do with the light spectrum...bla bla bla. Obviously with a clear lense you can use whatever color you want, but you get a brighter light if you use a red led behind a red lense opposed to a white led behind a red lense.

    I know I know, not what we have learned in regards to strobes, but it just something Ive heard since the led hideaways have come along.

    Just my two cents.

    The things you find on youtube... Very dangerous!

    There is also links to other details of these lights. I also saw a plow guy in my area with these lights on his truck and wondered if they are legal?
