    here is a video. it won't do justice because its a lot brighter in person. can't really capture it on camera. my friend moved around too much and stepped on the brakes too much lol. yes i know about the one lazy led..turns on when the car is on.

    why amber? your brakes are supposed to be red.

    should have used red-orange superflux instead. red-orange gives the most OEM brake light look and its brighter than just red.

    it looks good though so far, i'll probably be doing teh same thing with mine after i finish my tails.
