Do the amber led's inside the shroud really count as turn signals legally? (well, as legal as an aftermarket retrofit can be) This is some awesome work man! And like sol asked, what car?

'53 Buick convertible that will likely be the PPG calendar cover car and will be at SEMA. He wanted best of the best with 7" glass... this is it. Modded LS460s / Matsushita / Osram SVS.

Jon: I can make another set. Just $1,499 shipped to your door.

This car will NEVER be on the road, but yes they are legal from the front. They are not legal from the sides.

You can get good quality LED rings from theretrofitsource.com. Not sure how hard they are to wire but if you call up trs after you buy a product they'll talk to you until you understand what you're doing.

I was being nice! That was sincere. A lot of newbies just post wrong regurgitated info. Got2run5 was actually contributing great info. I just thought it might be good for him to know who did the work.

On topic tho, have any pics of the finished car? I don't even know if your customer has gotten the lights yet, but if he's that worried about headlights. I bet the whole car is sick.

Nah, not yet. It will likely be the PPG Calendar car this year as well as at SEMA so we look forward to seeing the finished look in person there so I can speak with both the owner and builder.
