2nd Gen Side Emitting "Headlight" LED Strip
Q: How exactly do 2 strips connect together. I would need to have it reasonably seamless without a gap.
A: Cut the strips, cut back some silicone to access the solder pads and carefully solder them together, then re-silicone the cut portion.

If you're not comfortable soldering such tiny stuff, you may find it easier to just physically place two cut strips next to each other and power them from opposite sides. That way the the two strips don't need to be soldered in the middle.
Q: 2 questions if I cut this every 6 leds how long would each part be in inches
and would they still all work if I made jumping wires between each section?
I only need 5 - 3 inch sections twice with 1 power line in for each setup - by Dan (Joliet Illinois)
A: There's 42 LEDs on the standard 20 inch length.
42 / 6 = 7 segments of 6 LEDs per 20 inch length.
20" / 7 segments = 2.85" length of a 6 LED segment

Yes, they will still all work if you make jumping wires between each section.
Q: I am interested in the dual color led strips for run light and turn signal. Will you eventually accept orders less than 100 piece minimum? I could make use of 4 but that's about it. - by Michael (North tonawanda ny )
A: Custom orders require a large quantity. These are already designed and in stock, you can order 4 or less.
Q: What is the lumen output of the white LEDs? What is the color temp of the white LEDs?
A: 10,000K, 91.7 lumens. You can find that information here: https://www.oznium.com/flexible-led-strips/2nd-gen-side-emitting-led-strip#tech
Q: My HID headlights, parking lights, and the white part of my switchbacks are all 5000k (true white). 10000k is violet blue the warm white is yellow. Do you plan a 5000K version of this otherwise great product?
A: Tested, no violet color, just white.
Q: If it is a 3 wire hookup, you show two negatives, but I have to positives and one ground. How does that wire up. I am using it for a turn signal(amber) and headlight(white).
