All tail and corner lights are required to be reflective... so you're already pretty much a beacon to anyone with a light.
Personally I'd cut each of the red/white ones in half an give the red ones to some kids to play with... that way you're highly reflective at night but they kind of blend during the day. Of course being dark green I would have to find something that was clear and reflective to blend in during the day.
It also raises the question if anything short of a road sign trailer with a giant blinking arrow will keep Wilson from getting hit...
Jage, perhaps a Glowing Low Altitude Balloon?
valid points guys
per the safety guy, the red/white combo is called "Conspicuity Safety Tape"
the red and white break up the human eye's something causing more visability
i am pretty much down for the day time deal to put on Wilsons Big Ass Generator box
i kind of like the "corners also"
much night driving but it would allow me to rack up some miles
while Mrs. Wilson and Cooper get thier beauty rest
i dont plan
on being somewhere that a redneck bouncing around in a 4x4, giant light bar, alchohol and guns would see me in the distance ... (remember the scene from Croc Dundee?)
the plan is:
corners upper rear, maybe upper on the bow also
a mild stripe of daytime green and nighttime red/white on the baja box
no plan for running on the sides like the pic of the trailer
anyother thoughts Folks??
