Default I got this crazy idea for a mod

I've been thinking about buying some abs plastic sheet and cutting out a rectangle section out of both headlights to mount some L.E.D lights in a swedish flag pattern to cut on when i run the park lamps..sounds crazy but it would be different....just have to do some research on led lighting and how to overcome 12v systems

you get 12V led std, you just need to fit resistors in series with them, there,s a simple formula for working out the resistance ( damt if I can mind it though) but your supplier would know.

You could build a simple circuit board and you could have the diodes sequencially flashing, how bling would that be

Hi, Could you not adapt this:

Or

Looks simple enough to make to me.

Hope it helps

i could do that ran to a seperate switch one blue and one yellow in each headlight. I did that once to a civic i had but that reflective tape that he added since i used that sight really helps ...i just want the car to stand out alittle just in case i decide to set it up for a AKA Rally i plan to enter...i figure why not the car was free so might as well make the most of it. just waiting for my old high school to open back up so i can get all the wiring diagrams for this car off of alldata then i'll really uncover some cool things...thanks
