Client from out of State was worried about his parents here in Idaho.
His father said he had a hard time seeing at night and was also worried about them getting rear-ended because of all the texters nowadays.
So, for the front, I added Dual 6" Diode Dynamic Stage Series light bars and they are activated off of the factory low beams....so this way they'll be on during the day via DRLs and on automatically at night so his father doesn't have to worry about turning them on/off.
These are an SAE legal auxiliary light and since they are below the factory headlights and aimed properly, they can be on and not illegal and will not obstruct the view on on-coming drivers....which this is all done in the matter of safety and that was taken into account.
The rear end was a fun little custom job.
We discussed MULTIPLE different ways to attack this issue of drivers to the rear of the car not paying attention.
After we decided on upgrading the factory 3rd brake light to a much brighter version (via Morimoto's DRL LED bar)....I then added a super slick Brake Pulsing module that allowed me to program the pulses any way I felt was necessary.
We decided on CONSTANT RANDOM PULSES....so whenever the brakes are depressed, the 3rd brake like will constantly and randomly pulse....
Now, some of you are saying "Hey, that'd be annoying during stop/n/go traffic".....well....Too Bad.....I'm helping the elderly out and giving them annoying tech so that they stay safe!
Actually...the though process around this is that MOST texters/drivers look down/away more than the average distracted driver...so a single triple or quad brake pulse isn't enough.....a constant pulse is better; because you never know when they eventually look up...might as well make sure they know you're stopped the entire time!
In the end, this was a fun project and I love helping people out....especially with my knowledge of automotive lighting...it's good to put it to use in a safe manner rather than always for 'show'.
The customer was super happy....just check the yelp review below!
