have you thought about doing like the cargo/ full brake, but with the turn signals being orange in a full red housing? if you do one like that, let me know. i'd definately be your tester.

Not sure how well the orange led's would shine through an all red light housing... now putting it in a cargo housing would be a neat idea.... especially if your tail light turn signals are orange.

Dangit! Now I gotta find some high output orange led's!

haha! but seriously, let me know. im not too big of a fan of the cargo light look, i was thinking of a red-orange look would be cool...
but seriously, if you do, let me know. i can even send you my stock 3rd BL in great condition (and only 23k miles)

I'll see what I can come up with.

I really don't know if the orange led's would be very orange through the red lens...

If I can round up enough orange or yellow led's, I'll make up a test pcb to see how they look & let you know.

I'm thinking of a few new designs as far as the actual layout for the brake/turn signal mods, but I need to see how much more difficult it will be to get them wired up properly

Please disregard my messy work table... but here's a little something I started working on a while ago. It's still in the prototype phase, but so far, so good.

On to the crappy videos:





I still need to condense the electronics so they don't take up so much room, but hopefully I'll get them to fit right in the area behind the 3rdBL.

I had both sides connected at the same time here, but they'll be a new version of mt "buggman mod" where the outer red sections work as sequential turn signals while the center section and possibly a smaller section of the outer areas will be for brake lights.

After Christmas - Before New Year Bump.

I have one completed cargo 3rdBL at the moment that I'd like to find a new home for.

It's just as bright as my other led modded 3rdBL's and has an OEM connector attached so it's plug-n-play.

BUT, inside the cargo sections, a little liquid spray tape found it's way onto the inside of the lens & dried leaving a few tiny spots of dark gray/black.
It's not that noticeable, but that kind of stuff doesn't meet my normal standards so I'm knocking the price down for this one.

I could take it all apart, clean the inside of the lens, re-attach everything & sell it as normal, but I honestly don't like taking them back apart once they're finished.

If someone were to spray on some Nightshades, you probably wouldn't even notice anything. I've tried Nightshades a few time & my results sucked

One Time Offer for this LED modded Cargo 3rdBL $45 shipped/insured FREE in the USA. (Shipping to Canada will cost a few bucks more)

I'll try to get some pics posted this weekend... I was making some led plate blanks tonight & completely forgot to bring the light in.

Will do Falco... I haven't forgot about your ovals either

Got 'em painted, just need to find time to buff 'em out & get 'em put together.

Here's a couple pics of the $45 special







When you're 6" from it, you can barely see the black spots. From 6' away you can't really see them unless you have super vision.

You can't see it at all when they're on, heck you can barley look right at when it's on
