Default Tail Light Mod

Ive had a few ppl lately ask how I done this so figured id do a quick write up

Basicly this mod will make your tails look like this when lights are on


Top is still the signal and bottom the brake

I first went to Car Quest and got a 3 wire GM socket about $12 each or you can goto a junk yard and pick up another set of tail light harnesses


First you need to cut one tab off the socket so it fits in the tail light like this


Next step you cut the 2 wire socket off your harness (no pic sence i done this 2 years ago)

Than you wire the 3 wire socket up to the harness, black is ground and depending on which socket you buy the major wire goes to the green wire (if u buy a new socket the colors are the same)


Next step cut the black and white wire on the lil side socket and leave plenty of wire on each end, than wire the minor wire from the 3 wire socket to this


Hope this helps anyone who wants to do this
