new twist on an old mod

don't know if some of you remember when i did the 3 light mod on my 3rd brake light about 4 years ago, well i have been thinking...... so what i came up with is take my flasher off the LED, and put it on my stock 3rd brake light... without further ado, heres the video of it flashing...


from 2004:

If you had LED's in there it would not "fade" like that. instant on, instant off.
