Cool, the front has the wig wag effect.

Love this app that streams video and pics from my phone to the TV.

Need a space between the video embed and the YouTube link, can't get it to click right.

That slight delay on the rear might make you more visible. Wonder what's causing that?

For the side indicators, I wanted them lit normally and flashing with the turn signals. The simplest way to do that was to power them from the running lights and "ground" them through the turn signal lights. Whenever the turn signal gets power, the LED has 12V on both leads and turns off. It's a neat little trick. However, it won't work if I switch to LEDs for the normal signals. It also doesn't work if I turn on the hazards AND have the key off.

In the back, the delay is really the LED turning on faster than the regular brake light. You only notice the delay because now the LED turns on instantly. I do wish that extra back light was brighter, but some is better than none.

Thought maybe the tail light was incandescent. Thanks
