UPDATE: Well, strike that! Even though Oregon law doesn't prohibit the third brake lights from blinking, federal law trumps all! Specifically, section S5.5.10 of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108. ("All stoplamps must be steady burning when in use. Steady means free from change or variation. This means that they must not modulate, flash, or vary in size, area, intensity or appearance.")Personally, I'm probably going to start out by installing the "3rd Brake PULSAR" from GoMiniGo.com since they are legal in Oregon. I've seen similar things on other vehicles and it really grabs my attention when driving.
My second modification will probably be to replace the wedge lamps with LED replacements from Super Bright LEDs. I know one person that purchased from them and he was happy and the reviews seem to indicate that they take care of their customers if problems come up. I figure the wedge lights will be a good experiment to take a look at performance and compare them to the stock bulbs.
The lights on the exterior of the LEAF are going to be a time consuming process since the luminosity needs to match the incandescent bulbs at all angles... Depending on how the reflectors are designed, a direct replacement might not be possible (to stay street-legal).
