Great write up and lots of useful information. I plan on tackling a similar project this winter. I want the amber turns and rods on the back though. I had them on my 07 with a bright ass tail light. I also have the tour pack and bag lid spoilers with lights that I want to see if CD makes a brighter/better LED for. The end result I am looking for will be spoiler lights, tail lights, and fender tip light on for run, all and rods for brake, and amber turns and amber rods for turn signal. I know I will have to open up the fender tip light and maybe re work the wiring/circuit board, but I will have a couple months of down time since winter is moving in.
