well in high end cars there's light that tell u whats on such as turn signals, high beams and fogs, there normaly on caddys but im sure there on other high end cars

We always called em snitches, it's a fiber optic indicator, basically just some fiber optic strands in the light bezel, and it transmits some of the light to an indicator located where the driver can see it, so you know if your turn signals and brake lights are working.

I had always thought about getting some small fiber optic cables and making a spot in the cluster somewhere that you could see what each light was doing, if it was on or blown out or what.

Also wondered about using a cluster of super bright LED's and using fiber optic cables in a signal housing to spread the light evenly without having to solder complicated boards...... :naughty:

They are but they go on bottom. There just on top. I guess it's preference.
