    Hello, I am working on a project to make light-bars for me and my friends to have in our vehicles.
    I have the led's which are labeled as "super bright" so im going to assume 3-5W.
    I have MANY questions and they are due to wanting to get it right and not worry about damaging anything, not for thereof lack of knowledge.

    Requirements
    1) each individual setting must be able to work via physical switch
    2) must have flashing, "takedown", left to right, right to left, in to out and left side then right side flashing. MIN.
    3) must cost under $50 in parts
    4) power source is a car battery
    5)must be able to power 9-21 Led's (setups/changes need for for 9, 12, 15, 18, 21 Leds please, not sure how many i will need as of right now )
    6) Must have Led lights to show patter in dash (mini leds/low power)
    7) must be simple enough to understand and clear. I understand most diagrams but I don't have a complete understanding.


    Questions I have:
    Do I need a heavy gauge wire?
    Will a PCB withstand a car battery power?
    How do I avoid blowing a light?


    I am EAGER TO LEARN!


    emails would be the best form of communication. Connor_minke(at)hotmail(dot)com

    NOTE TO ADMINS IM NOT SURE IF I KEEP SENDING THIS TO THE QUEUE I DID T NOTICE THE NOTE my apologize
