It's like an optical illusion, I think I see a woman bending over and then next thing you know it looks like antlers.
It's a drawing of 2 elephants' heads. I can honestly say that I've never looked at it and seen a woman being over lol.

Do you like your LED's tied to your parking lights? The reason I didn't like it was I still had regular bulbs in the bottom section, so the 3 LED's on the side would blink on and off half a second faster than the standard bulb would. With all of your lights being LED, I assume they would all blink at the same time, correct?

I don't know where the f*** you found that but the left elephant's ear is the woman's head. The right elephant's ear is her a** and the two elephants trunks are her legs even though the one makes her look like she's got a bum leg

Maybe it's just me

LMAO. I never saw it like that, but I can see it now. For the woman though, holy cellulite, Batman! I've never really payed much attention to it after I put it as my profile picture, because it's so light. With it large, how I originally had it, it only looks like a pair of elephants.

I like it the way I have it. My side (3 LEDs) blink at the same rate as the lower bulb which I have replaced with an led. They alternate as they blink, but at the same rate.

If you have LED halo's, then it doesn't matter.

Here are CCFL's



Yea, I am definitely gonna get CCFLs for the halos. Just can't decide if I want the LEDs to the parking lights or the turn signals. If I wired them to the turn signals, it wouldn't overload them, would it?

Ah, good. When my white LED's come in I'll revist the "tying side LED's into turn signals" deal, to make it even more visible that I'm turning.

Nope, the LED's have such a low draw it won't make much of a difference at all. Just splice them in and you're good to go.

You won't get anywhere near "overloading". Not only are we dealing with small incandescent fixtures, but we're putting LEDs on the circuit which dramatically reduces draw. You could probably put 50 LEDs on a circuit and still not get close To overloading.
