So last night when I was doing my parking light delete (which rocks by the way), I incidentally discovered how ricers make their sidemarkers and taillights blink so fast. In order to get your parking lights to remain off while your lights are on, you have to cover one of the receptors at the bottom of the bulb. Well, if you cover the wrong one, the parking light will stay on all the time, but when I tried out my blinkers I hear this CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK. I was like, MOTHER OF GOD WHAT IN THE HELL IS THAT. Parking lights stayed bright the entire time, but sidemarkers and taillights went into a clicking frenzy. I am guessing this is becuase the extra current was sent to the only 2 remaining places (sidemarkers and taillights)?

Anyway, after I got over the shock of it, I had one of those, "awww, how cute," moments, when I thought of all the early 90's civic hatches and all the late 80's accords. Hehe.

Ha, whenever I'm behind a car with fast blinkers, I assume the front blinker bulb went out.

When do we get pics of your parking light delete?

yeah i normally assume that their lights are just fucked whenever i see it, not that they're actually trying to do it. but now that i think about it, they probably are...how sad.

Alright, finally got pics for you guys with the parking light delete...and yes, I know my angel eyes don't work, lol.

p.s. - don't make fun of my crappy camera =P





This last image is with the parking lights on....

Note: The parking lights are PIAA Super Bright Whites behind OEM clear parking light casings. The parking lights shown are at 100% intensity (when driving around, parking lights are normally set at 50% intensity unless you purchase single fillament bulbs). As you can see, even at 100%, parking lights will never even come close to comparing with H1 bulbs in Ellipsoids.

Not sure if I'd delete my P-lights after seeing the pics. The front looks too simple now at night. Plus, did you sacrifice your angel eyes doing this mod? If so not sure about that one either. used

But It looks interesting, Good luck....

I like the Nail Salon :lol: in the back ground...were you out there picking up chicks with that big red BMW magnet!!!!

EDIT: One more thing...Maybe Projector HIDs (a clean sharp light w/ out the orange P.lights) would actually take this mod even further...

I think it looks a lot cleaner... I'm planning on doing it after I replace the bulb in my foglight.
