yup I can see me and shane doing this mod, lol

on the 06 mirrors i'm thinking it would look better on the outer part like the superdutys, I just dont want them fading cause they looks like really flexible plastic...don't want them going yellow...

underneeth is the only way imo.....exposed uglyness = fail in my eyes. I plan on shading mine a little bit.

Just wired them into the new wires going to the corner light. They only work if my lights are on, that may be becuase of my all LED's in front
so they won't flash unless the headlights are on?

Almost got a set, but not for $24 shipping. YIKES.
Damn things could fit in a small box ans easily be shipped via USPS for $8 tops.

I know if I was shipping them via Canada Post, I could do it for under $10 with a tracking number. Guess that's how sellers make their money though.

Thanks to blackonblack04 for reminding be that I had these in my garage. Here are couple of pics of what the light looks like, the back side of them, and their directions. I would think a small hole drilled in the bottom side of the mirror would be the best installation. I would have to agree with the niteshade idea to make them look the best.

Everyone is looking on Ebay, but I bought these from advanced auto parts 2 years ago for $20. Might be worth checking out.

Thought it might help seeing where the wires come out of the light itself.
