    Just a teaser. The circuits have not been written, these are just hand soldered together.

    Please excuse my desk clutter.

    Teaser Clip

    Pricing will be $15 LH or $25 pr. This will include all wiring, clips and instructions. This will be a kit which will mean removing your mirrors and modifying the glass housings.

    Let me know what y'all think.

    Just as an FYI you can not see the LED's when they are not lit. The mirror glass is not etched like some newer cars.

    If people prefer I could also do them in an arrow format. Post your opinions!

    I voted no...only because I like my car to be as 1971 hot-rodded primitive as it can be. Well maybe a few upgrades but mostly old skool here...just the way I like it! :p

    Yea this is not going to go over well with everyone. I knew that ahead of time. The thought process behind this was the same as all my other designs which is to allow other people to better see classic cars on the road and to help potentially avoid accidents.

    Can you describe what you mean by "stealth"?

    That is how they currently are. When not lit you can not see them. They are behind the mirror glass and the glass is not etched. When not lit it still looks like a normal mirror.

    These are just mock up LED's, they have too wide of a beam pattern but it is what I had in the drawer for use with the tail lights. I need order a narrower beam pattern in a brighter LED. The glass used is an original 42 yr old piece of glass. I am not sure if the replacement mirror glass is the same, easier or harder to project through but I will investigate this.
