Default Crazy idea in my head....MIRRORS!!

I had an idea in my head that I had been wanting to try I scrounged up some pennies and bought the supplies needed to make my turn signal mirrors like on the newer cars..... all in all it took about an hour to put what I had in my head to the mirror!

They are brighter than I expected actually, I still have to mount them permanently but you get the idea. I also only used 3 led's I am going to remake the lens to hold 4.

Thanks man I have a set of 3rd gen camaro mirrors that I'm going to be installing in the wagon and I'm going to do this to them as well. I need to open the mirrors to check the space inside because mine are powered as well...

Very I'm guessing you are going to paint the inside of the mirror so you won't see the flash when you look at the mirror?

Actually it can be painted but the flash really isn' that bothersome when the indicator is on.....I haven't decided yet.
