Sweet, that sounds simple enough. Is the light dinner at all because now it has 2 lights on that circuit?

Depends how you wire them, doing it in parallel won't make them dimmer but it'll draw twice as much current so watch the wattage of the bulbs vs the wire size.

I might try a few different ways but I think I am going to wire it with the side market will be the way I am going. I will let you guys know. I might have an extra set of jdm signals going up for sale too. One is cracked but the other is in very good condition.

When I wired mine I used a 87 Cressida parking light and those little splicing kitsch inch turned out fine. I also used a LED bulb for the parking light. What u can do is bend one of the pins inside the oem bulb connector and use the splice clips to get power from there so that you can have the signal setup and the parking light setup
