I made a pair of mounting brackets using the rubber-covered clamps and have all the bits and pieces collected to make up a wiring harness , which plan to do this evening. I'll post full pics when I'm done.

These 60-series oval amber turnsignal/brakelight/tail light assemblies that have two "power" wires-- one for full bightness and the other for reduced brighness for use as a tail light. Full brightness would be great as daytime running lights/conspicuity lights. But I have a concern that they might be too bright for nighttime use and might cause glare or distraction to oncoming traffic on a dark rural road. I could easily mount a toggle switch to select high/low brightness but will need to put the extra wire in the wiring harness.

What is your experience with the Whelan TIR/LIN lights used as daytime running lights or the Photon Blaster DRLs? Too bright at night?
