Now for the but, They DON'T use the board I worked so hard to mod for quad tails and non-SRCK LED's :frown:

The middle socket only had 2 wires.

I popped the boot off and found a stud I could hook a jumper wire to so I would have quad tails again :smile:

When I popped the boot on the other side it didn't have the 3rd stud, so I got a new socket and wired it up

They're staying untinted for now. After seeing the difference in light output side by side I don't know if I'll tint them, but maybe later.

at least you have aftermarket ones, I want to walk away from taillight tints but what...go back to those fugly tails with the clown colors lol But nice job modding the taillights to do the dual brakes! :yes:

Ill more then likely switch to regular ones when my dad takes over the car from me so he doesn't get hit for no reason (better safe then sorry)

Modding the tails was for quad running lights, quad brake are done to the harness before the taillight plug and splices into the trailer harness..
