I plan to eventually wire them to the turn signals, OR to some other flashing light display for "party mode" (i.e. paint smiley faces in reverse on them, etc).
There is a junkyard near me that has 3 school busses that have lenses... am toying with the idea of getting a few extra to play with....
Want to have fun?
Get extra turn signal (amber) lights...on the rear of the bus you want three per side, total, including your original ones.
THEN get the turn signal mechanism from an old Cougar (Mercury car), and use it's sequential turn signals wiring to make sequential turn signals for the bus.
Very trick, cool to see, folks pay more attention.
