Default Tackled Plasma Rod Install today

Thanks to all that have done this and posted tips and pics. Truthfully, it wasn't too bad installing, just tedious little work. I used 3/4" plastic quarter round and some extra strength double-sided tape to hold them in place.

Custom Dynamics parts were:
GEN-MPLASMA-RED - 8" Plasma Rods
TFC-3 - Plasma Rod Dual Converter X2
MAGIC-STROBES-SS6 GEN2 - Magic Brake Light Flasher

My only problem I need to fix and now fender skirt holding the tri-bar light seems loose and rattles, but the bolt is tight???

Anyway, here are some pics:

I have this same set up plus I added a plazma rod below tour pak in the center. I am thinking of changing the one below the tour pak to amber. I wish CD made the amber in a 14" length. I like the CD products. I get lots of compliments on the brightness. I set my strobe to flash every 3-4 seconds when brake applied.
