    Well, I had some extra amber colored LED's oval tail lights that I though I would try in the grill. Worked out really well. Then my 3rd brake light was bad, so I got a new LED one and hooked that up to a flasher. Then I saw how grec-o-face did his and his mirrors and thought that was a pretty cool set up, so I hooked all those into my flasher as well. Thanks grec-o-face!
    Here is the end result!
    I also have 90 watt hide a way strobe tubes in the headlights and the tail lights. They are not on in the video.

    First time posting a video, hope this works!

    now do the mirror ones still function as running lights and blinkers? also Im assuming you use some type of control box to flash them with the strobe effect, do you have all of the lights hooked up to the same box? Looks really good and I like the idea of using the oval ones behind the grille.

    The 3rd brake light and the marker lights and turn signals work as normal. Wired in relays to everything works as it should until I turn on my led flasher. It is all controlled by an led flasher and a switch. Im happy with the outcome!

    The ones in the grill are just oval tail lights. Think I was getting them for $40 pair if I recall.

    are they just LED tails or are they the strobe ones? I have strobe ones on my trailer but they run without a box like self contained. They run about 80 a pair.

    They are just led tails. I wired them into my led flasher.

    Pretty slick.

    To post a vid within the thread use YouTubes "embed" link and copy/paste that here. (I think)

    Thanks.
    I tried copy and pasting the embeded link and it showed a bunch of mombo jumbo after I posted the post.

    That's a slick setup. it's incognito yet VERY noticable in the dark. -maybe the dummies will stay clear while you are working??

    I'm working on a similar setup (not so fancy) was think about HID's in the front and rear (off the headache rack)? Anybody ever try that?

    Im not 100% sure, I was told by a local firefighter that flashing red on the rear was ok, just not on the front. Never took the time to actually look up the law, but I have had flashing red on the rear for years without a problem. I dont ever drive down the road with them on.
