Set up a delay on the marker lights so that they blink from inside out, like on old muscle cars.

They will mount in the same places as the stock lights. I might build a set to sell, and the sequential turn signals are a great idea ill have to look into that.

Still looking for a sequential turn signal relay but here is the finished product. The next set will have the signal lights a bit higher up.

Wait, I've driven in San Antonio a bunch of times, why are you putting blinkers in if nobody uses them there? ;p

so i think i might sell this set and build another with the turn signals up a bit higher so they can be seen above the spindle mount on the right side. and possibly go with a oval tail/brake light.

When you figure this out, post up part#'s and a how to. Really interested in this....

Lights look good, what LED's did you get for the blinkers (directionals). I'm planning on building some LED lights similar to what you've got.
