TexasRedNeck Yeah, Matt, I would also be concerned about the ricer look, but am curious to see how it turns out. It looks good like it sits but nothing wrong being restless.

I hear you. When I was getting all the lights for my truck I was thinking about going with switchbacks like you are, and decided to stick with amber on everything. I do need to do the cab lights next.

M.A.M. My endgame with the switchbacks everywhere is having the ability to switch between having all the forward facing lights white, or flipping a switch and having all the forward facing lights amber. That is to include the cab lights, mirror lights, marker lights in the headlight, and the LED strips in the headlights. They値l be set up so that when I use the turn signal, the turn signal and the mirror light will flash together, but stay the color that they are currently illuminated. I.e. if illuminated amber, will flash on/off amber for turn signal; if illuminated white, will flash on/off white for turn signal.

Are you talking about the mirrors or the headlights?

Yeah, I知 trying to decide between just putting in the clear lens with a switchback bulb behind it, or paint matching the lens and leaving a few strips clear on it. Just trying to picture what it will look like, and can稚 really come up with anything.

They will be white while driving and when the turn signal is engaged they will go to amber and act like regular signals and back to white when turn goes off Ryan

Need some input on the headlight turn signal lenses. As of right now, the only thing I値l be color matching in the headlight is the black plastic that runs from left to right, as seen below. Consider also color matching the marker light lens, and masking off a logo or just s few straight lines, for switchbacks to shine thru from the backside. I had been thinking of doing a clear lens, but when I try to imagine it, it just about seems like it might look to ricer with all the chrome in the light and a clear lens. I feel the paint might bring it together a bit more. Thots?
