Light strip above back panel lightning help needed
« on: March 14, 2016, 04:24:46 PM »
Anyone tie in a 12v lightstrip above the back panel? I'm wondering how a blacklight led strip would look lighting up the Lightning when the flashers flash but not sure where to tie into  I'd like for it to trigger with the back panel flasher but it is a board not a bulb and socket. Some of my concerns are: how will the board react to having another string of lads come after it? Will the main board sense an issue at the flasher board with more of a load on it?

Actually the 12V version worked perfectly I tied into a flasher so that the blue light strip flashed when the lighting effect is supposed to be triggered. Check it out  :)  8)
