Bought some LED Mirror Covers from Dave, took me forever to get them painted, and installed, but FINALLY... they're on.

Got vid of the wiring that I wired it to. Now, there's different ways of wiring these things guys, you may not choose to do it like this so, if you respond "That's not how you're supposed to do it!" ... then eat it. It depends on how you want them to functions.

My covers have 2 different sets of 3 LED's. Outer 3, and inner 3. I wired the outer 3 to an accessory wire inside the door, so whenever I turn the key once, they come on. The inner 3, I ran over the wheel well and wired to the blinkers, so... they work as turn signals.

Vid:

Blackmagik's LED Mirror Covers: How To Right Click, Save Target As.

Specs:

Size: 37.0 MB's
Length: 3 mins. 48 sec.




Enjoy And I'm sure there's some mistakes in there, or the pics are hard to see, or something. I'm too damn worried about it, just watch the vid...OH YEAH ....... I got above the wheel well through an opening in the door frame. Taped the wire to a straightened out close hanger and pushed it through

And... I didn't get vid of them flashing and all that jazz, b/c I suck. Sorry guys, my mistake


Songs:

1) 30 Seconds to Mars: Hero
2.) 30 Seconds to Mars: Capricorn



Feedback welcome, thanks guys.

GREAT VIDEO!


looks wonderful, clear instructions on how to take everything off that you need, and what wires are which,


for all nooblet johns: to wire the other 3 to blink when you use your turnsignal, wire the power line through the fender to the front, or through the firewall to the front and splice into the turn signal power line.


so now you cant complain about that.


and the wires for the mirror covers are like this....

Matrix 5-LED's from superbrightleds, at least I think that's what they're called.

Thanks for the comment.
