Hello fellow members,hope everyones Christmas was the best ever. I want to share some pictures
of my turn and brake lights.They are 12V LED with power from a 12V gel battery. The wiring is connected to a set of relays so when the brakes are applied the lights come on. This will not stop the right or left blinker from flashing. This way I only used two lights in the back of the car. The front lights are standard filament bulbs.The battery is a very small gel-cell from a childs four wheeler. Now to get the pictures? Hope you enjoy, thanks John

John,

Very nice. What did you use for the switch holder?

Could you post the wiring schematic. You mentioned you used relays so the stop and blink will still work as desired.

Bob I used a pipe from the top rail of a chain link feance and welded a washer to the end. Then turn it to the shape you see. Then cut the profile that was needed to fit the column. I will upload some pictures of the cutaway parts. I was trying to make it look something like the horn assembly. Something that might have come with a T to a non T person. A few pepole have looked and thought it was factory. Just having fun making it work.
Chris, I can post or e-mail a schematic, need to redraw a little and I can send it.
Thanks John

I see the trailer wireing harness in there to!
That is 1 of the neatest brackets for that purpose I have seen.Nice job.The only change I might would consider is to leave the white ground wire on the harness,allowing the use of a Lighted switch so that you can see your blinker is on while driveing.
