thats pretty neat. Although I think that would freak me out at night and start to bother me. I dont have the greatest night vision to begin with and an unexpected light might scare me if I forget about it. Let us now how you like it.

You spelled brake two different ways in your post lol.


Interesting idea though. Don't think I've ever seen that before.

Perhaps its to remind you you're braking when your drunk... not that I endorse that sort of thing. 0.o

i like it a lot. there wasnt really a point in doing it. i got the LEDS for 10 dollars. and took me about an hour to do. i just think it looks sweet. and its not blinding at all. its really bright towards my lower body. the LEDs are faced down, so the light goes right to the floor
