I think someone has altered my lights - The front orange only work as indicators and are not on as running lights - also my fog lights can be switched on independently of the headlights.
Yes I'm going to make these and several other styles. As soon as I get some more supplies I will post in the for sale section.

Solid with strakes. Need to mount LEDs under bumper.



Just plain solid



Cut off bottom and show turn signals



With windows for lights



Whew 😥

That all sounds normal to me.

You have done an amazing job on these, I love the plain flat ones with chrome headlight surround, fantastic. Headlight design/shape is the one thing I find hard to live with on a 986, thank goodness Porsche didn't upgrade them to the 996 Gen 2 type. IMHO your car looks more like a classic Porsche now, great work ,well done.

Actually, I suppose that if you followed these instructions, then ran another set of wires from the end of the side marker assembly back to your lights, it would work, but this seems like a little extra work...unless you really wanted the side markers to flash as well.

the idea is to get the side markers to flash so that you can cover the front turn signals.

Previously suggested (further down in this thread) was for him to tap into the side markers for the DRL lead, and from the turn signals for the flash. Additionally, I think he was adding lights to the front as the side markers (as turn signals) don't fulfill requirements (or at least here in the US) for "front turn signals"...darn Feds and INDOT (Indiana Dept Of Transportation).

Do appreciate the link you provided though...I've been meaning to convert my side markers (just been lazy) and I think you've inspired me to do so this afternoon. Not sure weather to thank you or curse you for sending me off on a tangent project... . Sigh...
