Thank you! Were there any issues with fitting or wiring?
Looking at the tail light housings out there, it seems none have a placement for the turn signals

The only inconvenience was getting 4 nuts the same as the nuts supplied with the "Lucas style" indicators. I can't remember what size they are, I went to see a local guy who used to restore old brits and got 4 nuts from him. I also ran earth wires to each indicator as the oe connectors are 2 pin.

Installed short stem units years ago. had to put crimp connectors to hook up. I had a lucas styled taillight already. Got the nuts from Home Depot or Ace. I put LED bulbs in and brightened things up a bunch.

Did you need add any other devices to allow the LED's to function?

Nope. just put it in place of the existing bulb. Sorry I wasn't clear, the led went in the tailight. Not sure if they'd work in the turn signals. Hmm, maybe I'll walk out and see if they work. Be back after while.

Had two extra bulbs so I plugged them in and they are very noticeably brighter. Left them blinking for about 30 sec. and didn't blow anything. I too put in a separate ground wire for the light sockets. You may be able to see them in the pics.

Where did you mount the "earth" wires to?
Sorry, I'm not great with electrical bits.
