Default Modded up some mirror switchback DRL turn signals

Turn signal brightness is perfect. They're meant to be in headlights as DRLs so that's why the white is so bright. Obviously not done yet. And never mind the buzzing sound. That's my cheap 12v wall adapter making that noise.

Might want to check your local laws. Here, you cannot have white lights higher than your headlights except for off road. If you have white lights higher than your headlights on the highway, they must be covered.

Yeah I'm going to have to look into that!! Never knew about that before. They're going to be on a switch so they'll be controlled separately. And I wonder if the color (like you said white) matters because a lot of trucks have the Amber cab clearance lights from the factory.

Edit: what if I just raise my headlights really high? Lol

The Toyota FJ Cruiser has a white light on the upper portion of the side rear view mirror housing that face forward and are lit when the lights are on.
They face forward.
This dispels your theory

At least here, it only applies to white light.

not really, unless you live in the same locale and know all the laws like the back of your hand...

Why do people like switchbacks? Novelty of 2 colors in seemingly the same location?
