Re: [DML] Installing Turn Signal Under Side Mirror

[I think Kayo means 1986, right Kayo? :-)  Andy, this week's moderator]


I had entertain the idea of a turning signal to be installed since I  
had purchased my car in 1966, but I could did not find a set of light  
fixtures that is the shape or size that would look correct to be  
mounted on side of the car or the mirror housing.  I also couldn't  
find a place to mount it on the mirror housing without it looking  
obtrusive and ugly as well as to be fully visual viable.  Personally,  
I also didn't want the flashing light to be in "my face" that can be  
blinding during nighttime driving.  The other problem

I resolved this situation by adding a set of turning side signal  
lights from a 2003 BMW, which is mounted on the front fenders' side  
molding, just in front of the doors.  I had to modify the housing  
units as to refit the bulb in the housing.  And to make them work in  
synchronization with the car's turn signal, I've tapped off the  
dashboard's turn signals' wires to get the flashing signal.  I ran  
the wires under the molding and it is carefully glued into place.   
The units looks artistically correct in flow with the body lines of  
the car and they works very well with perfect high visual visibility,  
including the day time when the sun is shining.  A perfect set up for  
the streets of New York City's congested traffic as well as for the  
highway driving and if they don't see the turning signals, they  
shouldn't be on the road!
