    I have a couple of 4 head led pods that I want to mount on the 4 wheeler for when I get the snow blower attached to it my question is how do I make them strobe?
    All they are is a 4 head led pod,amber color, with 2 leads coming out of each of them (hot and ground). how do I wire them to make them strobe?
    Is there a flasher or relay and how do I wire it?

    any body care to help?? Oh and I SUCK at herding electrons!!

    back in highschool we built led controllers with a 555 timer. radio shack should have the kit available. if i were doing it, i'd try and use that controller to trigger relays. not sure how well it would work.

    pics finally


    here is what I have... I thought that I would just duct tape them to the rack on the 4 wheeler and plug them in ( just kidding!) I will be working on a mounting bracket this weekend and see what I can come up with for mounts.
