Powering extra L.E.D strips?

Lightbulb Powering extra L.E.D strips?

I've been searching around on how to power led strips inside of the headlight area. So far, I've only come to the conclusion that I can splice the wires for other lights and connect them to the led strips? Please let me know if this is correct and safe. But anyways, here's the plan:

the led strip instruction says to get power from a 12v source. If I wanted to get the strip to light up and pulse like my turn signals, could I splice the turn signals and connect the led +/- wires onto it? Would I need resistors or anything like that?

Any help from an electrical genius would be appreciated!
And NO, I am not using the lights for the audi look.
It's something completely different!

Splicing into blinkers should be ok.

PS: get your flame suit on

haha, thanks man. So the brightness of the leds will depend on the wattage that the blinkers get?
