Whats a good voltage regulator that will go from 12v -> i would say, 5-8, maybe 9 volts?


The 78 series of voltage regulators are very popular and work well. The last 2 numbers represents the voltage. For example LM7805 is a 5 volt regulator.
This one is a 9 volt one:

Light chaser turn signals... Cool idea! Smile Take some pictures (or a video), I would love to see how it turns out.

If you want the power to be present only when the turn signal is activated you could also look at what makes the flasher relay drop out and simply cut it out of the circuit. It is probably just a C/R circuit that needs a capacitor cut out.

Good luck. Cool
