so i was looking around online and found a license plate frame i want... well, its around the $150 and up range... so i said screw that, i can make my own for a quarter of that.

heres my... "idea" of what i want to do (forgive the horrible paint image)



with the brakes flashing before becoming solid when brakes are applied, and the ambers connected to the turn signals.

heres what i plan on using,

and for the brake relay

any tips/advice/comments before i jump into it?

im pretty good with my hands (solder and wires and such)

i think my main concern is where the light wires are on the bike itself, but judging by how many have done the fender eliminator, i am not too concerned, im sure i could figure it out.

Fun fact. Once I got home from work I took my plate off to start working on cutting the clipboard. My sister was like hey were going to Costco. Wanna go? I was like yeah! So I hopped on the bike n followed them down there. Then I went on a ride afterwards. About an hour in I stop at Walgreens and realize.... "I DIDNT PUT MY PLATE ON!!" I hit the freeway at 90 and everything. So I went home. Luckily no cops.

Smoke break. And the plans have changed a little bit. Here's some pics so far.

The blue piece I am ending up just using as a template. I went to a train store and found some plastic.

It'll make sense once you see the rest. Once I get there.
