Custom Sequential Turn Signals

I added a custom flare to my '68 RS... sequential turn signals / brake lights.

Here's the part list:

2 - 12V Delay Relays @ 2.24 each
4 - Piranha LED panels @ 2.55 each

Plastic spacers, diodes, resistors, wire, solder, screws, heat shrink and time.

Not as fancy as Digitails but a whole lot cheaper, under $20 bucks!

Here's a quick Youtube vid taken last night.

Sorry about the quality, it was freezing rain and I wasn't taking her out of the garage.

Re: Custom Sequential Turn Signals

Tommie,

That is cool, and a heck of a lot cheaper than purchasing the kits. I know this would make for a great how-to fabrication thread, only if your interested of course.

Yeah pull one together and we can pow wow about sticking it. Looks like the perfect freezing rainy day project.

How does it behave with the hazards?

Re: Custom Sequential Turn Signals

I didn't take pics along the way but I could do a "how to" some time this week. Fairly simple diagrams.

Wife thinks its just bling for the Camaro, she just doesn't get it.

Thanks for liking the project.

Re: Custom Sequential Turn Signals

Here's a quick Photoshop mock up of the installation.
Not included are the 1" square X 3" UHMW plastic blocks used for spacers. The blocks will need to be sanded on one side to 3/4" to fit the bottom of the backing plate.

You will need an electronic flasher. I already had one in the Camaro from previous LED usage.

The relay is adjustable to it takes a bit to sync them up to each other. The relay was wrapped in heat shrink then zip tied to the back of the backing plate.

All connections are soldered and heat shrinked.

Any questions? Fire AWAY!
