Exclamation WANTED: 100USD reward via paypal for these flashers

I give up. I've googled, sent emails, talked to some local shops for custom work, talked to vendors and no one can get this product.

I am offering 100 USD paypal reward for the first one who finds out who makes these motoGP 1M safety car flashers/fogs and can point me to the vendor. i want these for my car! I counted 46 LEDs per flasher

Cool LED strobes, found a couple of leads that might help with your search. The first link is actually for a strobe kit with 1" round lights but different/fewer LEDs, and the second is for a round 48-LED light that should be able to work with a kit if you find a bright color:

my life would be complete if i succeeded!

your 2nd link is a lot like what ive seen so far but it looks plain ugly, the flashers that came with the motoGP 1M are just perfect in terms of placement of the LEDs and a small black base for them ...

What's your guess on diameter? 4" seems to big, found a few 48 LED ones, but looks too big. 2" seems small, so maybe 3.5"?

Middle of page. There are a bunch of Spyder LED lights in different black round housing. For example:

based on the image spacing, these look to be about 2.5 - 3 inches

Not identical, but I think getting close! Motorcycle stuff primarily, Looks like they do custom work too.

EDIT: Found another, this are 3" strobe, but I bet you can hard wire to always be on.

Motorcycle or Emergency Vehicle (Police, Fire, Tow Trucks, etc).

I am beginning to think these might be custom, just not much in the size that is fully enclosed, waterproof, etc.

Probably semi-custom, someone made the light as an off-the-shelf product and they ripped it apart and stuck it to their grille.

46 LED's in it, if that helps.

Maybe use "strobe" in your google searches.

I tried for about 10 minutes, not getting anywhere. Good luck!

Couldn't quite find the ones you have posted. Seems to be a "custom" made part. I am still searching. Here are a few things I came across though.
