Probably everyone knows about this but me.

I've been MIA for a couple of months as I prepared for our 50th wedding anniversary party. Lots to get ready around the house because we were expecting 60-100 people at our house.

Built a 8+' high X 55' long wall out of 700-900# blocks to finish up around our pond (ran out of blocks before I could do it all) and in the process crushed my thumb and broke my foot along with assorted bruises. I iz now a master stone mason!!!!

Haven't worked on or hardly even driven a car in a long while, but I digress.

The bulb does the work and it senses the voltage on the high-wattage side when the signal circuit is activated, drops out the white light in favor of the amber, and then once the signal is cancelled it goes back to white after about a 1-second delay.

One guy was saying he had LED switchbacks in the front turn signal housings. White as DRLs, amber for turn signals, and I did the "twilight" mod for parking lights.

Another guy used the 1157 bulb & used them in the stock sockets, moved the parking light wire to the twilight, and hooked the parking 'filament' of the switchbacks to the 'blue thing'. (switched 12V)

This opens the door to any number of ways to use the stock lights.

I like what I'm seeing here, but feel like I've come into the middle of a conversation. What are you using this for? :?
