Would like to have it just on the spoilers LED strip, 94-SE

those extra bright LED bulbs Indiana posted pics of look like the right idea,,,
lots of running light and more brake lights.
I don't see why you couldn't use it on the spoiler, as long as it is LED compatible. However, you have to be sure and wire it in the correct place, as the spoiler on my 97 serves double duty as running lights and brake lights. Honda has a special circuit to accomplish this, and you'd need to wire it in after that circuit, to the brake light function only. I did something similar and had to use a relay to accomplish it. It's been a while, and I forget the exact wiring.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

LED solution

I put LED stop/ tail light bulbs in my '97 GL1500 and had the problem of the turn signals canceling the cruise, it worked ok with one standard bulb installed.
The turn signal circuit is not connected to the stop/ tail light circuit right?
Wrong, when i took the 5 wire to 4 wire converter out and rewired my trailer to separate turn signals the problem went away.
Now i can run all LEDs, the feedback was coming from the 5 to 4 converter.

Good catch.
However I want to remind you one point that if a 1157 led bulb and a regular 1157 bulb are used on the same circuit, and there is not a diode protection in the LED bulb, voltage will leak into the regular bulb and find the ground through its filament. This will toast the resistor in the LED bulb sooner or later based on the usage.
