Can you clarify this statement with perhaps a close up shot and maybe a picture/video of it on? I am very intrigued.


Thanks

blue 70chevelle:


if you look at the pic of the passenger side, right above the amber reflector portion of the parking light there is an empty section in the headlight where it wraps around, I installed the tir3's well before the advent of the vertex and hide away led systems, i just cut a square hole and epoxied the heads inside the headlight housing, facing the sides.

My company has several contracts, I work with 2 towing companies and provide roadside service, including AAA, I use the truck as my demo vehicle, and I use it for oversize load escorts occasionally, as my uncle owns a logging company and has 2 lowboys. I made a skid unit for the bed that has the over size load sign, and flags mounted to the rack.

That truck must have 6 million miles on it with all that driving.

blue70 chevelle I added pics of the tir3's installed by the headlights, of cource this would be easier to do today with a pair of vertex, but I did this well before they relesed the vertex, or any hideaway led for that matter. I also did a install on a silverado for a police dept where I removed the cargo lights by the CHSML and installed 2 blue tir3's the truck also got rear haw strobes and 2 tir6's on the back of the tool box

Define "variety of uses"
What difference does it make? Look at the install and the vinyl. . . The last thing we need is anymore people starting s#*tstorms over the uses of people's lights.
