Thanks Kai. Can't wait to install the tails. Been way to cold here as I have to do all my work outside. Looking at yours made me anxious. lol

Ok, ordered all my parts... oh man am I excited and nervous. Let me just say ordering fuel injector connectors to make lights work is odd. Thanks for the motivation.

It was a daunting task for me as well, but rest assured that if you follow the directions in the link I posted in my original post and purchase all the parts listed, you will be successful.

So got all my parts in soldered and shrink wrapped everything, how much of the 3 pin connector did you grind off? Just the locking tab or that whole side till it was "flat"?

Made mine flat. Di-electric grease and a plastic tie, no problems.

Where are you putting the grease, and where did you get it from?

Di-electric grease goes into the wire connector. I bought mine at home depot in the electrical dept. I would think most home centers with a electrical dept. would have it.

Sweet, picked mine up at Lowes, was in their seasonal section of all places. Now I just got to get some half decent weather so I can pull the lights off the truck, verify what I'm cutting off the one connector and bam done! Then I just have to hunt down some painted side view mirrors.
