So I don't really know where to get them or how to wire them up yet. But I've been playing around with an idea for my Camaro. I'm still going through the process of tweaking the appearance of the car to match my tastes, and I had an idea.

I want to throw the '95 style lights on them and black out the center of the red (ignore the gosh aweful rest of the car in this picture):

The only reason I don't just pop those on is I like having the amber signal separate. That gave me the idea to use a switchback light in there. I'd want to wire it up so it comes on white when I'm reversing, and blink yellow for the signal. I think the reverse light is an 1157 size bulb and it doesn't light up the whole clear part of the housing. My goal would be to both light up the full housing and make sure there is sufficient light output in reverse to actually be useful. Ideally the white light would be really really bright and I'd probably need both an 1157 and a 194 size switchback. I think my Camaro has a 3057 bulb in the stock housings for each light so I'd have to hack up the harness no matter how I do this. But I don't want the light to light up white while I'm not in reverse.

I thought a switchback lightbulb might do the trick. If not then I'll have to rig up a custom LED setup.
