Hey buiddy. You have the same setup i do. I have 5 led matrix style in superwhite for citylights and I have 9 led for side makers. Do you have hte matrix style 5 led ones? They seemd to work best. The 4 led all forward facing didnt do it for me. Great job.

Well the prblem with the 5 led "matrix" style is how their made. They are 4 360 facing leds and 1 front facing led. It is birghter int hat it covers more area. Unfortunatly i coudl nto get the matrix style to fit in the side markers. And becsaue it would not shine in 360 for the sides i wanted a bright as possible to it coudl reflect as much as it can facing 1 direction. It works realyl well. The bit of Mirror it hits reflects it all around nice. From the back it is not as bright but still looks awsome.

Here is an ebay link the the matrix style so you can see aht i am tlaking aobut. I deff thinkl they were a much better investment, and i jsut switched hte 4 led ot the back. With it shinning in all directions it looks so much better. The 4 led looked great fomr certina angles becsaue it woudl nto reflect fomr hte back. Deff go buy youreslef matrix ones and put your 4 leds in the back, they looks awsome for the License Plate;) Minus the whole blue ittlegal part wink

PS only problem is that this site sells them by the bulb so they are allot of $$ frown
