    I feel bad posting a light thread before Unit453 but the early bird gets the worm and it's tail lights so here it goes, my boys bought me a tail light bar for my birthday, we installed the light bar today and I'm wiring it tomorrow. I plan to solder all connections and shrink tube the connections to protect them, is there any thing else I should do to it?

    I like the look of them on solid. Does half blink with the directionals?

    Half with each directional, all with hazards, all with brakes (brighter than the running lights) but no whites when in reverse.

    Given where you live, I would also go over the connections with Liquid Electrical Tape. The stuff is great for sealing out the weather! I used to use silicon for a sealer, but this stuff is way better.

    I have the recon Fire and Ice bar...I like it except for using the double sided tape...If I could do it over again from the begining, I would have sheet metal screwed it in.

    This one mounted with tape as well, no holes in it to use screws, if I have a problem with it later I'll make brackets to hold it.

    I love the liquid e-tape, when I hard wire it I will be sure to coat it up. I have it through the trailer lights right now untill I can do it right.

    HFT has it for probably half the price of home depot. Comes in a white or yellow can with blue and black writing; part no. 36821, IIRC.
