    this picture is of the back of my atv where i put two strips on the rack bars and 3 strips on the tool box. i did all the tape because when i was plowing the driveways that i do a cop showed up and gave me a warning that one i need a plate (but im not 16 so i cant do that...im 15 till 11/13!) and two that if i was driving it at night i would not be seen...even tho i have headlights and a taillight???.. but i did it so i dont get in trouble and can still be able to drive when i turn 16!

    i put my finger in the picture so that you could see.. if i didnt the sun from the back door window was to bright!

    i put a strip on the front in the middle of the bars as shown in the picture vvvvvv

    i did the top part of the strip and my little cuzin wanted to do one so he did the battom part...hints thats why it is not the same size as the top!

    yes i could have fixed it but that would make him upset and it doesnt really affect me that much!

    here is where i placed my leds for now till i have more time to make a spot.

    this is before they were all hooked up and worked.

    yes i did think about the toolbox strap breaking the leds but i dont think it will because its was holding a hammer there for a long time before i put the leds there..ha never know when you will need a hammer

    To turn it on and off you can just get a simple switch which will be sold at any auto parts store.

    As for making them flash, I would be very careful of that. I'm not sure about Ohio laws but having flashing blue lights of any kinds is generally illegal in most US states. Law enforcement are usually the only ones allowed to run blue lights.

    I know that many of the Canadian members use blues but that's because That's the Color for plows in Canada.
