mounting a strobe controller?

hey guys

so i have been racking my brain trying to figure out where to mount the strobe controller for the hideaway strobes.... but i cant seem to decide on a place where it'll be out of the way, able to run wires, and have it look good.

where do you have yours? locations?. pictures?

thanks!

Re: mounting a strobe controller?

my power supply is under the passenger seat with the switched mounted in the dash. fairly easy to hide the wires and its out of the way and not likely to get wet either.

you ain't earnin' if you ain't turnin'

Re: mounting a strobe controller?

What do you guys think of the headlight/tail light strobes? I'm trying to figure out the best way to address the snow plowing strobe thing. I'm told I have to have some type of lighting while plowing snow in my state. And what do they cost for a good setup? I don't like the idea of drilling holes in the housing's but if there isn't a problem with it then I will..

Ditto... but I have a switch on the dash to turn it on and off... The controler is just to control the flash patterns.


Its flashing about twice as fast as that, but the camera only picks up every other flash...
