If you just hooked up an accent light to it, YES it would light the way to the side for you, but it'd also blink On/Off/On/Off.
That's where the Momentary Power Switch would come in handy.
Once it's triggered, if it could stay on for say 10 secs WITHOUT power (obviously tied to battery power via relay) then it could stay on throughout the turning process.

Did I lose anyone yet??
That's a wonderful idea, cartmann32. I'll dig into this after tax season, thanks.

Some more exciting new things happening at Diode! We have recently invested in a state-of-the-art ROMER coordinate measuring machine and 3D printer, allowing us to bring new products to market quicker than ever before. Check out the link to our recent blog post below for the full write-up!

ok, I have to ask. If you have both the ROMER coordinating measuring machine and 3D printer, could you design for the solstice a retrofit LED headlight (or projectors) with LED strips. I know I have retrofits in mine now but if the inner plastic portion and headlight reflector could be redesigned to set the LED/projector type headlight in. It would be as simple and opening them up, set them in, close them up and plug and play. I say simple like I'm designing anything without knowing what I'm doing.

Your thoughts?

We certainly could, but the Solstice is such a limited market that it wouldn't be a good use of resources. If there was enough demand, we could look into it, but I don't think there are too many Solstice owners looking for a high-end retrofit with custom parts.
