first off, great Idea! The write up you did in the How-To section is top notch.

Tonight I am going to do this to my bike. I just went out and spent a total of 23.00 for all the materials. 10 LED's, (4 are 2600mcd and cost 8.00! the rest are 1600mcd), a 3 pac of 18G wire, 600 ohm resistors, and a pack of water resistant bullet connectors.

Ill start my own thread to show the finished product as I dont want to stomp on your thread.

I copied all your posts from the How-To section and put them in a single Word file and will be following that.

THanks again.

I was wondering.....

How noticeable are your lights in the day time? I got one side done last night after my kid went to sleep, but Im concernd that they wont be noticeable in the daylight.

well i regret toinform you that I have failed. after spending ALL FRIGGIN WEEKEND fighting with the LED's, I just could not get satisfactory output during the daylight. I tried lower resistors, I tried re-aiming them. I just wasnt happy withit. but at night they ROCK. well the LED's are now out of my tail, and I just moved my old signals into the brake light housing at the corners. Once again I saw some one do that in this forum. Not my idea. I just cant remember who I copied.

WellI might try the LED thing again later, but for now it is dead.

Mike:(
