Default SwitchBack LED Mirror Turn Signals

Put together a video of my most recent mod. Took the Maxi-LED mirror covers and added a custom touch to them. Started with taking them apart and throwing the LED's and reflector away that were inside. Messed one of the lense's up by using Oops cleaner on it. Resulted in major frosting of the lense with stress cracks. Looks like it started to melt the plastic. Took the undamaged lense and used Oops on it to make it match the other as far as the frosting. Did it in a more controlled manner with a towel instead of spraying it directly on the lense. Then i tinted the lense's and swapped out the LED's inside them with a strip of white and amber LED's configured with relays to give a switchback effect to match the switchbacks in the headlight housing. The paint match is not perfect but what do you expect out of a rattle can. Its close enough for me. I may wrap them with a carbon fiber vinyl or get them painted professionally later on.

The color temperature on the white LED's is 6000k. They really are more white than blue in person at night. I am going to look into dimming them only at night. I'm thinking i can use the sun sensor in the dash or put in a separate light sensor. Use it to control a relay to switch to a lower voltage source.

Thanks, its my first time with Pinnacle Studio HD. A steadier hand on the camera would have helped though. Gotta love the camera in my EVO 4G. I might give it a try in the daytime to make a video with the D90. It has an image stabilizer in the lense.

Now i have to think of another song to use when i make the interior light shot. I was thinking leather so soft by bridman and lil wayne. But i don't have leather. lol
