    I used a template and sprayed over it with crinkle paint to make this Firebird with lightening effect:



    Sprayed it with body paint color so when it's off it blend into the vehicle a little better:



    What's even nicer it when you take the time to install the sequential tail light mod. I love that mod !!! Blink-Blink-Blink ....

    This is where I got mine from. This guy is easy to deal with, and he had this shipped to me in a couple of days.

    Sequencing Tail Lights

    ... on the sequencing lights ....

    I've been running the "Thundercat" sequencing tail lights in my '00 TransAm for a few years now. It looks real nice. I've gotten some comments on it over the years. I've been pulled over a few times, but they've never mentioned that my turn and brake signals sequence, so I'm assuming no one cares.

    I got a crappy flasher module for my 3rd brake light too. It's just a turn signal flasher that goes in the rear. It works well though. I've noticed the incidents of almost getting rear ended have gone WAY down, compared to before, and to my other T/A, and other cars I drive. I'm VERY noticeable when I hit the brakes.

    He posted my complete T/A instructions with pictures up at:

    http://www.foxthundercats.com/firebird/index.html


    Their main site is:

    http://www.foxthundercats.com/electronixx/index.htm

    My video is at:

    http://jwsmythe.com/videos/thundercat%20lights.wmv

    It is the before and after, so you can see the difference between stock and not.

    I have an older box, which was adjustable with set screws. I don't know if the current version is. I made the video years ago, and have slowed the pulse down since then to make it more obvious.

    My apologies for the night version with the sequencing lights. I started in the afternoon, and didn't finish until after dark because I had to find two bulb sockets to install (you'll see in the instructions).

    I hadn't thought to do the logo'd 3rd light. I think I may have to do that soon.
