The LEDs would be brighter if put to 100%. The brightness will be controlled with two knobs, one for brightness when the lights are half-lit like how the outers are with the headlights on, and no brake. Another knob will control the brightness when the brake is applied. Once you get the brightness for each set to match the outers with the knobs, you will flip a DIP switch to "lock" their value in, so that vibrations and bumps don't change the brightness.
syncing the lights should not be a problem. I REALLY don't want a third knob for this, and will work it out based on my car, then send afew people prototypes to make sure.
SW, was that an idea for re-using the stock board, or a specific design you wanted? It wouldn't be too hard, as I could use the same logic functions for that and what Keith's pic shows, just your board would be wiried differently. however, it would no longer be able to do what keith's pic shows.

That is definately a pattern I'll be using. It seems we have two similar functions, one that does exactly that, and one that only has one section lit at a time.... and yes I could have them all on at "parking light" steady and come on brighter for turns.
