    i have a project not that unlike this guys bike project http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=20586 in fact a google search gave me that to find you guys.

    i drive a traffic safety enforcement truck. basically its a cop car but i worry more about accidents or dirrecting traffic with the fire department stuff, anyway, i got a new lightbar and it works great. BUT there is 2 open spots on the back that i want to add more TURN signal lighting

    (at times people will pull over but keep driving on the right (DONT DO THAT, STOP!) if they do that when i need to turn right at a side street. there could be an accident trying to get to the accident)

    the lights that are made to fit in the lightbar are already built with the right shape and color i need with simply just a HOT and a GROUND coming out.

    what i would like to do is run them as running lights at half power and full power when signal is on.. HOWEVER i may know how to solder and BASIC skills, watching the other thread i am SO lost.

    im just trying to figure out what i need from radio shack and how to put them together without getting lost in all the terms and symbols. anyone able to dumb down what i need to do for me haha
