Purchased White/Amber side lit LEDs for around the headlights. Connected the amber to the turnsignals

They were purchased from Ebay...exact length no cutting required..plus I received them in about 3 days...pre wired, easy connection directly to the turn signal/running lights in the mirrors. Here is the link to the Ebay site..they did cost a little bit more.. Shipped from Calif...not Hong Kong:
