Finally able to find time to get this done. Didn't take long at all! I decided to do this mod because of all the tailgaters out there. Really annoying when you're lowered too.
Note: These should only be used as a last resort. And only flashed as you would an oncoming driver who left the high beams on! Blinding people behind you is asking them to rear end you Use responsibly :)
So! I rigged up a line that will run power into the reverse lighting at the flick of a switch. And as some of may now, my Custom reverse LED setup is nice and bright :).
Power tapped using an add-a-fuse with my DRL circuit.


Studied a wiring diagram to figure out that all I need is to run the power to the unified wire powering the reverse lights. For an MT, it is a single green dotted wire that can be found behind the driver side seat.

Unfortunately, my driver side LED projection bulb is out :( that's why the trailer is not as illuminated as the walkway.

Wow nice! Was it hard to wire up? Is it on a switch?
Lol! You didn't read any of my poetry :(
It was pretty easy to wire up. Actually very simple.
I have it on a toggle switch so I can use when brake warning doesn't work on tailgaters.

If their tailgating then let them by. I hate the dildos that slow everyone up cause they gotta angle over a speed bump.
Tailgating is illegal. So is driving too slow (I think?). But this isn't for driving slow situations :p this is people who tailgate no matter how fast your going, or no matter how slow you go to let them by. Most cases you can't let them go by if its a single lane (and I'm not pulling onto the broken gravel shoulder just to let a jerk go by because he can't wait 15 seconds)

*sry, can't multiquote on Autoguide*

Technically, you can strobe the light as fast as you want lol. You just flip the toggle back and forth.

If they're really tailgating badly, I just downshift on them. :)
I live in a city that is described by "newly wed or nearly dead". It's young people who suck at driving (a lot of new university students too), or really old people.
If I slow down without signaling them, they will rear end me. I don't want to deal with that lol.
It's not good for the tranny, but it gets the message across.
You should be rev matching, then you're fine :) even a quick double clutch for good measure.

Nice, i've been wanting to do this. Just last night I had some idiot in an SUV tailgate me and had their high beams on the entire time (luckily I have 20% tint in addition to the auto dimming mirror). This was on a one lane road and I was already 10-15km/h over the posted limit...

Exactly what I'm talking about. There are a few lifted bronco bros driving are that don't Iike lowered cars out of principle. They say they do that on purpose because they think its funny.
