Spliced into the 3rd brake light for the separate signal for brakes

Cut the wires you need to cut to get the brake light signal out of the turns signals (got the brake out of turn signal signal, but the brake signal is getting in to the turns through my board layout in the tail lights)

This is on the right hand gauge cluster switch, with the hazard and fog light switches

and here are some pics, they're all of the "parking" lights only (except for one with the reverse light lit too)

as I've said in the build thread, $1500 if YOU supply the tail lights.

there's a LOT of time into making them

I'm not intersted making any. I gave price to shoo away all the cheapskates on this site (myself included) Honestly, it would take well over $2k to even have me considering.

As for moisture protection, I sprayed the boards after I populated them with a clear lacquer.

the ones I used on the Tails I got from www.superbrightleds.com but on my latest LED projects I've been getting Cree P4 LEDs (square base, 4-pin) from www.digikey.com

bump for some editing and reference for someone

the reason the amber sections still light up when I hit the brake is from my board layout inside the tail lights. I believe a ground issue, so some diodes need to be installed. I'll have to look into that after I get her running
