Recently I decided to put blinkers in my side mirrors. I think it will look great and make the car appear a bit more up to date, so to speak.
Just a teaser with a random piece of plexi put in place.

I have actually thought about selling sets, if the turn out good. The only problem I see is supplying the mirror casing. I'll have to scour the junkyards.

Looking for some opinions, guys. I want one nice and long line of non disrupted light, but it seems impossible to achieve with LEDs, there are always spots. I might settle down to a bunch of LEDs pack tightly, like in this test piece bellow.



Edit : Would look something like this(the orange one), I think it will be nice.

I remember something that was done in the not so distant past for angel eyes. They used to put a led into an acrylic tube. The light would evenly distribute thoughout the tube and appear as if it was nowadays' CCFL halo eyes or whatever you call them.

I remember that the only issue is it working at daytime in a not-so-efficient manner because a single LED is just not bright enough, but that was the case with halos. Give that you're using a thicker strip, you could get it to work. Here's a description:

"[...]

Essentially, they take arcrylic rods that are used with window blinds, heat and bend them, notch them with a dremel, and put a LED in each side.

The biggest issue is the collimation of the beam, and trying to make the end of the rod fit the LED snugly and perfectly clearly. I think someone suggested clear nail polish between the two. You want all of the light from the LED to go into the rod in a roughly narrow pattern. Best to use relatively high-power LEDs (not 5mm 20mA crap, at least get a 4-chip or 5-chip Cree or Superflux)"
