[DML] Re: Installing Turn Signal Under Side Mirror

I have pondered your idea for several years and looked around for some 
way to make a truly effective turn signal light like the mirror mounted 
ones on newer cars today. Placing a light on the mirror means doing 
some modifications to the mirrors and adding to the door wiring. I 
haven't come up with a solution I can embrace as yet. Some of the newer 
cars also incorporate newer lens technology that enhances the light 
into beams to get your attention - a safety item worth some effort to 
place on the car for sure. 

I've seen Kayo's setup and it is good one - he blended it in with the 
side molding. The light is as effective as most BMW lights and about 
the same height. He enhanced the safety factor. However, that setup is 
not as effective, in my opinion, as many mirror mounted lights - 
especially those on a Mercedes for example.

Several years ago I installed a relay bank of three relays for the 
front side marker lights that allow the front side markers to operate 
normally AND function with the appropriate turn signal. Since I sourced 
the power separately the front side markers really snap to life with 
full intensity and I think are fairly effective even in full daylight. 
However, the height and light-beam technology is not as desirable as 
the mirror mount for getting attention to an impending turn.

I too would be interested in any ideas. How about something in the 
black plastic molding in front of the window of the rear panels? Anyone 
tried something there?
